Am I a weird case of BPD or do I have NPD as well.

I’ve always knew I’ve got a personality disorder but I’m sure I am BPD, fear of abandonment, don’t really know who I am and I keep changing who I am, get either really low moods or really high moods. However when I am sad or depressed I don’t like showing it and don’t like appearing weak.

however, BPD people often blame themselves which I don’t. I hate when people do that it just makes them look pathetic.

To add my dad is definitely a narcissist it’s obvious, and he could also have anti social personality disorder.
I don’t know if I could also be NPD because I do daydream a lot about being rich, successful, etc. I want to be a president that is popular and has a lot of passion and someone people love. I do feel like I would be a great president. I often look in the mirror and see how I’d be looking going on the stage and doing my speeches.I became obsessed with personality disorders and kind of wanted to be something like a sociopath which makes you fearless and unique. But I’m not one, but I started believing I’m a narcissist which I’m not sure I am one. I’m BPD for sure though

Also my ego is very unstable sometimes I feel ugly, sometimes I feel like the most good looking guy ever. If I’m feeling depressed and ugly I tend to be very low energy. But when I’m in good mood and feeling good looking I’m a lot higher in energy. When I’m feeling good and have a lot of energy I can come across as a prick. I do love any sort of compliments that definitely makes my mood better. I love when someone calls me a psycho or even a narcissist which sometimes I’ve been called by my closest family, because when something bad happens to a friend of mine I get a sense of satisfaction.
I’m just curious what I could have tbh.

It sounds like you have NPD tendencies but that doesn't necessarily translate to having the disorder - everyone had some traits of pds in my experience just some less than others. It's entirely possible that you picked up a lot of traits from your dad but maybe don't qualify for a diagnosis still. Regardless, I hope you're well :)
