Does She Need Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder?

14 Oct

The treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD) should be offered to women who display strong signs of the condition. However, despite BPD having entered the local lexicon, few people really know where to find treatment and many fall to self-diagnoses or getting advice from unprofessional “healers”. BDP is not some kind of fad; it is not a condition that people can experiment on. If not remedied, BPD can cause a lot of emotional damage and make the suffering individual more prone to vices such as drugs and alcohol.

The majority of the signs of borderline personality disorder begin to appear as a woman enters early adulthood. It’s most common symptoms are fear of being left alone or abandoned by those they love, particularly their romantic partners. Women with BPD also commonly display drugs and alcohol abuse symptoms. Because the symptoms are not immediately observable – it will require a fairly long history to prove that a person suffers from PBD – most women are not treated until the condition has already progressed.

Treatment of borderline personality disorder is not easy to provide. Even if the family and the partner of a woman with BPD would tell her that they love her, she will still fixate on her imagined abandonment. In most cases, this fear will lead to a dependency, which is the person’s way to form an attachment with the people she desires. The dependency and fear then leads to many erratic behaviors, which actually become the base of the woman’s abandonment. In some cases, the woman may abandon other people before she thinks they will abandon her.

Of course, diagnosis is the first step to treating any condition, thus it is important to know the other symptoms of BPD. As has been indicated, the clearest symptom is that the woman makes frantic efforts to avoid or delay abandonment, whether real or imagined. This is related to other symptoms, which are frequent emotional outbursts and intense mood swings. Controlling these symptoms with drugs alone is rarely effective, if at all, and may even only require the woman to undergo other treatments later, such as methadone detox or DMG detox.

Another symptom of BPD is that the woman has inappropriate and extremely fierce anger and rage and problems controlling their anger, rage and violence. Most likely, she will also have a pattern of difficult relationships with the common theme of these relationships being erratic emotional extremes of either intense love and affection or hatred of the person in the relationship. When a relationship ends, the woman experienced prolonged feelings of emptiness and depression.

Other signs of BPD in women are unstable self-image, lack of character, frequent thoughts of suicide or harming one’s self, and impulsive behavior (which may include spending sprees, casual sex with stranger, and alcohol and drug abuse). Any person, family or romantic partner alike, who strongly suspects that a woman they care about suffer from this condition should seek a residential treatment center – currently known to provide the most effective programs and services on BPD – to provide treatment of borderline personality disorder for that person.
