In brief: Acronym "BPD"

Acronyms can be confusing, as people might use "bpd" to indicate either borderline personality disorder or bipolar disorder.
I'll answer about borderline pd -- which can indeed periodically experience psychotic symptoms like hearing voices, paranoia, and delusions. Hallucinations can arise in the context of intense pain such as abandonment depression -- but aren't usually sustained over time.
