Three lenses and Borderline Personality Disorder

Towards a narrative metaphor

by David van der Want
The essential feature is .... instability in a variety of areas, including interpersonal behaviour, mood and self image..... Interpersonal relations are often intense and unstable. Frequently there is impulsive and unpredictable behaviour that is potentially self damaging. A profound identity disturbance may be manifested by uncertainty about several issues relating to identity, such as self image, gender identity or long term goals and values. There may be problems tolerating being alone, and chronic feelings of emptiness and boredom. (Extract from DSM-IV: The clinical picture of Borderline Personality Disorder) (APA, 1994)
How may I fault thee? Let me count the ways: impulsive personality, malingering, reactive depression, anorexia, mania, attention deficit disorder, psychopathia, external control orientation, low self-esteem, narcissism, bulimia, neurasthenia, hypochondriasis, dependent personality, frigidity, authoritarianism, anti-social personality, exhibitionism, seasonal affective disorder, transvestism, agoraphobia (Gergen, 1994, p. 148).
