Kit Chow HWS 333 Fall 2009 Borderline Personality Disorder The presentation on borderline personality disorder is quite an interesting one to study upon. Although the presentation itself was short, there was still a lot of information. The origin of this illness goes back to the 1600s and was discovered by Bonet along with other writers such as Homer, Hippocrates and Aretaeus at that time. It was used to describe individuals with unstable moods. The variations of moods include erratic, intensive, divergent and impulsive anger can all be found in a person. People with BPD also experience periodic high and low in a short amount of time. There is no clear explanation of why this might occurs. The word ‘borderline’ was used to describe the mental state between psychosis and neurosis. It is the imaginary line that separates those who lost sense of what is real and those who have a functional mental disorder but not in delusions or hallucinations respectively. The causes of those mental illnesses can come from both physical and mental abuses, loss of a loved one and other tragic events. In addition, a person with low self-esteem and poor personalities can also be factors that influence how the person thinks and acts later in life. A miserable childhood with bad parental care is another example of how a kid might act in a certain way apart from the norms within the society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
