In brief: Borderline

I would be sensitive to criticism, quick to react, my moods fluctuate, I do things before thinking about consequences, i would have hard time finding stability in relationships, and i would have low self-esteem & poor self-image.
If I am not in treatment, i might inflict self injuries to get relief of tension.
