Dr. Seth Kunen answered:

Is Borderline personality disorder inherited?

Possible

Personality_disorder
Two studies by Distel et al. in 2008 found a strong genetic contribution to borderline personality dx. However, it is early in this research to be confident about such conclusions. Nonetheless, it would not surprise me if more research supported these findings, given the known genetic contribution to other disorders such as schizophrenia, anxiety (GAD, PTSD), bipolar dx, and ADHD.

How can you treat borderline personality disorder?

Not Your Job

Stringio
You are not a Professional Therapist and have no business trying to be one. Get professional help or leave this person forever. To keep in a relationship that you are trying to establish would be destructive to you and your future.
