    Bipolar personality disorder

    There are two main symptoms

    One is Borderline personality and the other is bipolar.

    Borderline Personality
    "Involves a longstanding pattern of abrupt, moment-to-moment swings -- in moods, relationships, self-image, and behavior (in contrast to distinct episodes of mania or depression in people with bipolar disorder) that are usually triggered by conflicts in interactions with other people. People with borderline personality disorder can experience overly strong emotional responses to upsetting life events and often try to hurt themselves. They often have chaotic relationships with people."

    Plus people with Borderline Personality also at more risk of having other types of mental health problems.  They also have "trauma as a child than people with bipolar disorder."

    Just some of the Symptoms has "trouble controlling his/her thoughts and managing his/her feelings, and often has impulsive and reckless behavior."

    Oh wait there more.
