Hello, I am wondering if I have borderline personality disorder. I have taken numerous screening tests online but I need peace of mind by getting an answer from a real professional. I am a 19 year old female with a history of anorexia, self-injurious behavior (harming myself when upset), major depression, PTSD, and rage. I have very unstable relationships and fear abandonment, this usually caused me to isolate those in my life first before they can hurt me. I fear getting close to people and I get overwhelmed when people want to get close to me and push them away. I as well feel a bottomless emptiness in my heart and I have bouts of crying and rage. Thank you.

hi welcome
you are right when you say you really need a doctor to make a diagnosis
your symptoms to sound like BPD but lots of people can have some traits without having the disorder
I think you should see a professional if you are concerned
only they can diagnose you
love Lu xxxx

Please see someone as soon as you can. Let me tell you waiting to get this diagnosis and trying to do it on your own only makes it worse. If you do have BPD find the tools to understand and work with it now. You do sound a lot like me as a 19 year old girl. I wish I knew then.

You certainly have BPD traits, basically extreme emotions that you are unable to control. Either see your doctor or self refer yourself through the Wellbeing service if you’re in the UK.
To better understand yourself and your actions I’d recommend you get a book called Mindfulness for Borderline Personality Disorder by Blaise Aguirre and Gillian Galen, I think it would help you.

Harming self is a hallmark of bpd, but please resist self diagnosing... even if you do have bpd, you will need the help of a therapist to guide you.
