I've been intrigued with borderline personality disorder since realizing I've had it all along and that this is why my life has been so hard and so fraught with raging (as a child and young adult) and drama and broken relationships. I wanted to alert parents to the signs you may see in young kids. I had all these traits and got diagnosed as an adult with bipolar, but I truly believe borderline was my main problem with a co-morbid mood disorder. The bipolar has caused me far less grief than the borderline. Maybe this can help somebody. I think it's probably best to get treatment very young if a child shows early borderline behaviors. It IS treatable unlike the once thought and I believe we are going to see it diagnosed more and more in younger children and teens, especially those who are not helped much by medication.
