Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

BPD is most easily distinguished for observers by the person’s inability to regulate their emotions, meaning relationships are fraught with excessive drama. “People with BPD often have intense and stormy relationships. Attitudes toward family, friends and loved ones may shift suddenly. Relationship problems are common and the behaviors are difficult for loved ones to manage effectively.” (National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder)
