Think about the important relationships in your life… work, family, romantic, friends…  Do you ever feel like you are walking on eggshells with any of them?

Do you ever feel like you are in a weird cycle of approval / disapproval?

Have you abandoned your friends because “they really aren’t that good for you”?

Do you have someone in your life that claims to see “your true potential” but then also manages to make you feel pretty awful about yourself?

You might be dealing with someone who suffers from one of the “Cluster B” personality disorders: Narcissistic, Histrionic, Borderline, or Antisocial personality disorder.  On today’s show, therapist Scott Carter gives us the rundown on this roller coaster ride.

Rachel Pool Robins gave a candid, in depth interview today about her journey through and out of Borderline Personality Disorder.wpid-20150617_151014.jpg

What is Borderline Personality Disorder?  According to the DSM, Fourth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR), to be diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, a person must show an enduring pattern of behavior that includes at least five of the following symptoms:

  • Extreme reactions—including panic, depression, rage, or frantic actions—to abandonment, whether real or perceived
  • A pattern of intense and stormy relationships with family, friends, and loved ones, often veering from extreme closeness and love (idealization) to extreme dislike or anger (devaluation)
  • Distorted and unstable self-image or sense of self, which can result in sudden changes in feelings, opinions, values, or plans and goals for the future (such as school or career choices)
  • Impulsive and often dangerous behaviors, such as spending sprees, unsafe sex, substance abuse, reckless driving, and binge eating
  • Recurring suicidal behaviors or threats or self-harming behavior, such as cutting
  • Intense and highly changeable moods, with each episode lasting from a few hours to a few days
  • Chronic feelings of emptiness and/or boredom
  • Inappropriate, intense anger or problems controlling anger
  • Having stress-related paranoid thoughts or severe dissociative symptoms, such as feeling cut off from oneself, observing oneself from outside the body, or losing touch with reality.
