But only just gathered enough courage to look it up on the net to see what it is. Very scary but those are the symptoms I've had for most of my life. I never realised that it all added up to an illness. Anyone else have this or know anyone with it?

?do you mean borderline personality disorder?

think there is some debate as to whether this is something that exists by itself, or whether it it exists in conjunction with other mental health problems like depression/anxiety disorders.

anyway, best of luck with getting treatment for dealing with this.

I would say WWB is right, and pseudo means biopolar, which is normally called BPD. It's what used to be called manic depression. Good luck with finding someone, pseudo.

it's borderline personality disorder.

i was told i had this,but stopped going to the psychiatrist so never got an actual diagnosis.

when i read up on it it was like reading about myself!

yes, its borderline personality disorder. Not bipolar depression.
