    Definitely high functioning.

    Frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment. Note: Do not include suicidal or self-injuring behavior covered in Criterion 5
    A pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation.
    Identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self.
    Impulsivity in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging (e.g., promiscuous sex, eating disorders, binge eating, substance abuse, reckless driving). Note: Do not include suicidal or self-injuring behavior covered in Criterion 5
    Recurrent suicidal behavior, gestures, threats or self-injuring behavior such as cutting, interfering with the healing of scars (excoriation) or picking at oneself.
    Affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood (e.g., intense episodic dysphoria, irritability or anxiety usually lasting a few hours and only rarely more than a few days).
    Chronic feelings of emptiness [not sure about this one, but it is possible]
    Inappropriate anger or difficulty controlling anger (e.g., frequent displays of temper, constant anger, recurrent physical fights).
    Transient, stress-related paranoid ideation, delusions or severe dissociative symptoms


    Uhh....so based on my intuition, pretty much all of them. She made a manipulative suicidal gesture to me the other day.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Is it recurrent? If she keeps doing it - check that one positive. That is, if you want to stay around long enough to find out.

    My ex-gf was definitely high-functioning, she had a job and all that, no problem - still the symptoms were pretty clear to people close to her...(I think her mother tried to "warn" me once, even)

    The high functioning makes it difficult.

    There have been a few gestures, not many.

    My mother still won't accept that I was borderline. Our household was a furball.

    The kid I've been dealing with hasn't ever attempted suicide, and I'm not aware that she's cutting or anything like that, but she did a couple of times do this "if you don't pay more attention to me or do what I want, I'm going to 'do something stupid to myself'" thing. Again though, not recently, thankfully. I talked to her dad pretty quick after that too, although her parents are fairly useless in this regard and her family quite dysfunctional (at least it explains quite a lot about her behaviour).

    Have you been able to suggest that the person you're dealing with see a therapist or at least a doctor? Is it a situation where you can enlist the help of others in some way? It can be scary to deal with such things alone.

    I was referring to the past tense. How did you stop being borderline?

    I had a nice guy take me in, who was healthy. My S.O. (ENTJ 8). I met him in a forum lol. He had strong boundaries, and he worked with me to rid myself of it. I never got any therapy to end it, but I had been seeking help throughout my 20's to no avail. I did not want bpd; it was thrust upon me, and I couldn't find the proper situation and environment necessary to rid myself of it. I also was a member of several forums, and used other resources that provided me with the information necessary to fix the situation.
