beautiful day during Mental Health Awareness Month
and today we’re gonna be talking about borderline personality disorder so we’re
gonna be talking about five dysregulation symptoms of BPD this is
something that Marsha Linehan talks about she’s one of the founders of
dialectical behavioral therapy so do me a favor and please share this video if
you’re somebody who struggles with BPD shedding this video might help other
people understand what you’re going through but it will also help other
people who might be struggling with BPD kind of understand what’s going on and
they might be able to find the help that they need all right so what is
dysregulation okay dysregulation simply put is the inability to manage something
alright it’s unmanageable okay so if you know somebody who struggles with BPD or
you are somebody who struggles with BPD you know the things can become a little
unmanageable so let’s get started and talk about the five symptoms of BPD when
it comes to dysregulation symptom number one emotional dysregulation and this is
pretty self-explanatory emotions are just all over the place they are
bouncing around like crazy so in an average person emotions come back to
center pretty easily okay depending on what the situation is like you might get
really mad you might get really upset but then you’re like okay you have the
ability to regulate your emotions and calm down okay but with somebody with
BPD their emotions are bouncing all over the place all right so some studies show
that BPD has an effect on the prefrontal cortex one of the responsibilities of
the prefrontal cortex is emotional regulation so people with borderline
typically bounce all over the place when it comes to their emotions that’s why
sometimes BPD is I know Staz bipolar disorder symptom
number two interpersonal dysregulation so typically the relationships that
people with BPD have they’re often chaotic okay whether that is a husband
wife boyfriend girlfriend mom dad co-workers anybody friends it could be
anybody it’s very hard to maintain these relationships that’s why the book that I
reviewed on my channel not too long ago I hate you don’t leave me is a perfect
title because people with BPD they’ll love you love you love you love you love
you and then they like get the heck away from me you know but a lot of this also
comes from their fears of abandonment and a lot of these fears are often
imagined fears of abandon the symptom number three self dysregulation people
with BPD often do not have a stable sense of self a lot of times they seem
to lack their own identity that’s why a lot of actors and actresses who do
because getting into a role helps give them an identity people at BPD
often become one of those chameleons and they’ll try to blend in with different
crowds they’re always searching for the next hobby or next thing to try to get
some kind of identification so they know who they are symptom number four
behavioural dysregulation people with BPD are extremely impulsive and they
often lack the ability to take a pause and properly assess what their behaviors
will do what the outcome will be what the consequences will be this is why a
lot of people with BPD get into substance abuse that’s why people with
BPD there’s an issue of promiscuity okay they’re looking for these instant
gratification ‘he’s not really seeing the overall picture about how this
immediate reaction can actually cause them a lot of harm and symptom number
five cognitive dysregulation a lot of people with BPD one of the symptoms is
being disassociated disconnected from reality this can create a sense of
paranoia so when you combined a sense of paranoia with a fear of abandonment
that’s often why if you’re dating somebody with BPD they can lash out and
then you combine emotional dysregulation as well it becomes this whole whirlwind
of a mask but a lot of people with BPD also
connect from reality and sometimes it feels like they’re not even in a real
place you know because they’re kind of having this like out of touch experience
now the good news is the good news is is that dialectical behavioral therapy
helps a lot with this you know a lot of DBT is about regulating different parts
of BPD symptoms this is one reason why they use mindfulness I did another video
and all of these will might be linked up in the info card about mindfulness for
borderline personality disorder science has proven that mindfulness a regular
practice of mindfulness whether it’s formal meditation or being mindful and
writing things down it can help restructure the brain to help you get
more control and regulate these different aspects of your life so I will
provide a bunch of resources down below from books websites and stuff like that
so make sure you check that description below all right but again again please
please please share this video so on one hand we can help create some more
awareness get some lower empathy how people understand what’s going on with
people who have borderline personality disorder but also so other people with
BPD might have a better idea about what’s actually going on but anyways
