How To Find If Your Child Is Suffering From Borderline Personality Disorder BPD

 Sometimes our loved ones, especially our children, have problems we cannot identify. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a cognitive illness. Complications in emotion regulation define this illness. This mental condition is distinguished by a mood instability pattern, leading to severe and unstable mood swings, poor self-image, instability and impulsivity, and highly volatile personal relationships.

A person with Borderline Personality Disorder may experience intense periods of anxiety, despair, or anger, which can continue for hours or even days. When toddlers exhibit mood swings and eating problems, we often dismiss them as tantrums, but they are much more than that. Parents with BPD require specialized schooling.

Children with BPD may continuously try to avoid actual or imagined events and scenarios of abandonment. As children mature, this combined outcome of living with BPD may result in severe self-destructive behavior such as self-harm.

Borderline Personality Disorder is not only upsetting for the person suffering from it but also for their family. Here are a few signs and symptoms that your child may have BPD.

Impulsive: They may exhibit extremely impulsive behaviors that can lead to dangerous consequences such as binge eating, spending sprees, purposeful recklessness, etc.

Dissociative: People with BPD have solid dissociative symptoms. They have stressful paranoid thoughts that make them feel cut off from themselves. These can even take you away from your studies or sense of self, letting you look at yourself outside your body and lose touch with reality.

Boredom and feeling empty: People with BPD can have terrible emotional problems, leaving them open and bored.

Intense Anger: Children with BPD exhibit uncontrollable anger and have anger issues. They feel and act out of control anger and struggle to control it, which makes them feel ashamed and guilty.

Unstable: People with Borderline personality disorder have a severely distorted and dangerous sense of self.

Self-harm: People with BPD frequently engage in self-harming or suicidal behaviors such as cutting or reckless self-harm if they are old enough.

Fear of Abandonment: BPD causes children/people to engage in frantic efforts to avoid being abandoned by family and friends. As there is a constant battle of emotional disturbance, a pattern of unstable and fierce relationships with friends and family swings from extreme closeness to extreme dislike, anger, or hatred.

Intense Moods: They are highly moody and experience intense emotions. These emotional outbursts can last from a few hours to a few days.

Specific knowledge and education about Borderline Personality Disorder allow parents to deal with these issues more effectively. Ordinary events, such as trips, vacations, or abrupt changes in plans from close relatives, can cause them to feel distressed and angry.

Suppose you notice a pattern and notice the symptoms mentioned above in your child. In that case, a licensed and qualified mental health professional must thoroughly and thoroughly evaluate the disorder the person has.
