How Can Borderline Personality Disorder Be So Prevalent, Yet So Misdiagnosed?

Summary

It isn’t comfortable living with borderline personality disorder (BPD). A person with BPD is likely prone to impulsivity, emotional reactivity, emotion dysregulation and unstable relationships. Nevertheless, what makes this condition more problematic is the lack of self-awareness most people have who live with it and who don’t get the help they need. Many people with BPD often get misdiagnosed as having other mental health conditions, but BPD has a prevalence in the population of 2 to 6%.
