People who have borderline personality disorder may have an unstable home and work life and troubled relationships. Symptoms usually begin during early adulthood and can include paranoia, impulsive behaviors, mood swings, depression and aggression. Borderline personality can be challenging to treat, especially when someone abuses drugs or alcohol to treat their condition.

Assessing Your Risk of Borderline Personality Disorder

To determine whether you struggle with a borderline personality disorder, you can start by taking a borderline personality disorder self-assessment. A quiz cannot serve as an official diagnosis but may help you evaluate your symptoms so you can determine if you should seek treatment.
