What is BPD?

"Borderline personality disorder" is a type of Personality Disorder aka personality deviation which is usually indicated by changes in mood or mood swing is very fast and extreme, the behavior is impulsive, and generally have a history of having an unhealthy relationship or unstable with others .

This deviation is practically similar to the Bipolar Disorder that has been discussed in the last Asaljeplak video, but has some differences.

Some of the symptoms that exist in a BPD sufferer are as follows:

Many people experience one or more of these symptoms daily, but who suffer from BPD will feel the symptoms consistently throughout his life.
