Have a family member or friend who seems to always be at the center of chaos?
Are they irritable, explosive, unpredictable and you never know if they love you or hate you from one day to the next? They’re a lot, a lot of work. They may be suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder.
Anxiety, depression, impulsivity and emotional instability are the core features and early childhood factors are likely to play a role.
Effective treatment for both teens and adults includes antidepressants and dialectical behavioral therapy.
They can be destructive to their own lives and yours. If you express your concerns and they ignore the recommendations, it’s time to limit your relationship to keep their drama from spilling over into your life.
You have the right to NOT get involved. Your family’s well-being should not be sacrificed.
