      Hi. I agree with idek_bear about talking to your doctor. I was diagnosed bipolar when I was a teen. Last year my psychiatrist talked to me about BPD and we both agree that I while I could have both, I definitely align more with BPD. There's a different line of treatment for it that I really enjoy. Sometimes it just takes the right questions. Good luck!

      talk to your doctor, tell them your concerns & ask that they refer you to their Social Work Dept. who will help you find a therapist & psychiatrist. Borderline & Bipolar are extremely similar but they have 1 factor that's different: Bordline is developed due to your environment & Bipolar is genetic, so keep that in mind as well! Be adimant that your PCP refer you to Social work & be adimant that Social Work helps you find a therapist who takes your insurance. Don't go in guns-blazing but definitely keep your guard up & advocate for yourself.
