In brief: Borderline
The hardest thing to maintain with borderline personality disorder are interpersonal boundaries.
Boundary violations often occur with people struggling with this disorder and whoever your coworker is, you're going to have to work on those boundary issues first and foremost, most notably in terms of safeguarding against being emotionally invaded or manipulated by that person.

In brief: Borderline at work
Borderline personality do well in highly defined and structured work environment and clearly defined policies and procedures.
Zanarini et at 2003 found that symptomatic improvement is both common and stable, even among the most disturbed borderline patients, and that the symptomatic prognosis for most, but not all, severely ill borderline patients is better than previously recognized.
