If you have borderline personality disorder (BPD), you likely feel like you are on a roller coaster.

Their needs always vary according to their emotions.

People with SPD tend to be extremely sensitive. Even small things can trigger violent reactions, and once triggered, they have a hard time calming down. There is an intense feeling of worthlessness. This emotional lability and the weight of an inability to calm oneself can easily lead to relationship turmoil and impulsive (even reckless) behavior.
