Quiet borderline personality disorder is a form of personality disorder that impairs the lives of at least 1.6% of the population.
Unlike borderline personality disorder, quiet borderline personality disorder often goes unnoticed as it commonly sees individuals struggle internally.
Unfortunately, this makes the disorder harder to diagnose as signs and symptoms are typically psychological.
As a result, many individuals struggling with quiet borderline personality disorder do not receive the treatment they need to overcome and manage the disorder.
Sadly, as with all personality disorders, if treatment for quiet borderline personality disorder is not sought, it can have adverse consequences on an individual’s health and wellbeing.
To ensure that you can recognise if you have quiet borderline personality disorder, at Cassiobury Court, we have delved into the causes and signs of the disorder.
We have also touched on the available treatment for you to take advantage of, should you find yourself living with the disorder.
What Causes Quiet Borderline Personality Disorder?
Just as other personality disorders often arise from abuse, trauma, genetics and environmental factors, quiet borderline personality disorder does too.
Although you will want to ascertain what has caused you to experience the disorder, without treatment, it may be impossible to do so.
What Are The Signs and Symptoms Of Quiet Borderline Personality Disorder?
Rather than physically displaying symptoms such as mood swings and irritability, all of which are associated with borderline personality disorders, as touched on above, quiet borderline personality sees an individual direct any issues faced inwards.
This essentially makes it tricky to recognise the signs and symptoms associated with the disorder.
However, if you believe that you have quiet borderline personality disorder, you will experience a wealth of pessimistic thoughts and feelings.
To help you determine whether the disorder affects your life, we have listed some of the most common signs associated with quiet borderline personality disorder below.
- Mood swings
- Suppressing emotions
- Feeling emotional
- Feeling empty and unmotivated
- Destructive thoughts
- Isolation from others
- Frequently feeling guilty
- Suicidal thoughts
In addition to the above, if you struggle with quiet borderline personality disorder, you may find it hard to create and maintain relationships. You may also find it challenging to fulfil commitments and obligations, for example, at work.
Furthermore, if quiet borderline personality disorder is present in your life, it is likely that you will often participate in self-destructive activities. For example, you may isolate yourself from others, abuse substances or gamble.
If you recognise any of the symptoms noted above and believe that you may have quiet borderline personality disorder, securing treatment can help you relieve yourself of the signs and symptoms you experience.
