Are you seeking after the particular properties of the Bipolar BPD? You did notice that some symptoms are specific to BPD while others aren’t?
Read on to uncover the pointers you need to follow so as to discriminate borderline personality from the bipolar symptoms.
The bipolar condition is encompases two mood states, depression and mania. Type I and type II depict the distinctive mood dynamics. In short, in type I mania is the stable phase with short depressive sequences, while in type II major depression is the constant mood state with brief mania occurrences.
So the first aspect you’ll have to remark is the presence of depression or mania for longer time periods, with quick switches into the other mood state. Furthermore you’ll need to watch if the transitory disposition switch came as the consequence of outside stimuli, or was it spontaneous?
Bipolar disorder is generated particularly by dysfunctions of the “emotion hormones” metabolism in the brain, like serotonin and dopamine. This is the explanation for the relative steadiness of one polar mood state.
Moving on with the bipolar BPD, a BPD’s mood will swing from a fairly stable, normal, and functional state into brief outbursts of rage and/or behavioural impulsivity. One prominent characteristic of borderline personality is the internal and/or behavioural instability.
So secondly, while both ailments involve disposition unstableness, bipolar is characterized by the two “poles” of mania and depression, while BPD by changes from normality to extreme fury. Furthermore, bipolar is predominantly generated by physiological disturbances in the metabolism of emotion hormones, while borderline personality encompasses affective unstableness determined mainly by personality components which are learned.
A bipolar is either depressed or maniac, while the BPD functions ok in general and bursts into fury when external stimuli address the internal sentiment of downing and the fear of being left alone. Furthermore, typically a BPD will also suffer from acute emotional void or emptiness, and identity disruptions, that aren’t characteristic in bipolar disorder.
In conclusion a person has Bipolar BPD if he/she swings from depression to mania or the other way around, and also has anger episodes, fears abandonment, feels affectional emptiness, has identity problems, and impulsive behaviors.
