In brief: Focus

Believe it or not, the bpd diagnosis is not as important as implementing the coping skills you will be taught in therapy.
Focus on using the skills such as mindfulness, CBT reframing, and increasing your positive social group to feel more interconnected. You're probably suffering from both anxiety and depressive symptoms if bpd is possibly on the table. You just focus on implementing those skills
