In brief: Get evaluated

See your mental health provider to get evaluated.
A series of questions and behavior observations and if needed a psychological evaluation will help them make the diagnosis.

In brief: Borderline

Get an evaluation from a psychiatrist to help identify what borderline personality disorder means to you and whatever else may be bothering you.
Consider recommendations for medication if any are given. Get a referral for a reputable psychotherapist to speak with. Meds and therapy combined are most optimal; no just one or the other. Dialectical Behavior Therapy seems to work well.
