"Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a genuine emotional instability stamped by unsteady temperaments, conduct, and connections. In 1980, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, Third Edition (DSM-III) recorded BPD as a diagnosable disease interestingly. Most therapists and other emotional well-being experts utilize the DSM to analyze dysfunctional behaviors. Since a few individuals with extreme BPD have brief insane scenes, specialists initially thought about this disease as atypical, or marginal, forms of other mental issue. While psychological wellness specialists now by and large concur that the name ""Borderline personality disorder"" is misdirecting, a more precise term does not exist yet. "
"• 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 " Borderline personality disorder is avery common and high prevalence disease in almost all developing as well as in developing countries.

During some early time study in japan, In the first clinical study of the borderline personality disorder (BPD) in Asia, the Diagnostic Interview for Borderlines (DIB) was performed on 85 female outpatients aged 18 to 30 years in Japan. BPD was diagnosed in 32 (38%) of these patients. The International Classification of Diseases-9 (ICD-9) diagnoses made at the initial examination of the DIB-identified BPD patients were, in order of frequency, neurotic disorders, anorexia nervosa and other eating disorders, and manic-depressive psychoses. The DSM-III axis I diagnoses of the DIB-identified BPD patients were affective disorders in 63%, eating disorders in 34%, and substance use disorders in 22%. This study suggests that there are indeed BPD patients in Japan. An exception is made of the low incidence of substance use disorders, and of the fact that most Japanese patients continue to maintain stormy one-to-one or masochistic relationships with their parents because they live at home--their clinical picture is not different from that of American patients.
