Symptoms may include emotional instability, feelings of worthlessness, insecurity, impulsivity, and impaired social relationships. BPD is widely estimated to affect 5 to 10% of the population. It can have a myriad of manifestations, there are core threads that run through most individuals that struggle with BPD:

Although some addicts do recognize the problems their addiction has created and seek treatment and recovery on their own, this is not the case with everyone.
