Trouble sleeping, skin irritations, mood changes, and muscle pain can all be caused by the toxins that parasites release into the bloodstream. These toxins often cause anxiety, which can manifest itself in different ways. For instance, waking up in the middle of the night or grinding your teeth in your sleep are signs that your body is experiencing anxiety while you rest. When these toxins interact with your neurotransmitters or blood cells, they can cause mood swings or skin irritation.

I know people like this.
No, they're just arseholes or as I like to call them, just another human.
I've had girlfriends act like this. Irrational jealousy etc. Seen other couples go through the same thing.
None of them had BPD, it was just their personality period.
They did have these things called emotions though. And well sometimes they get the better of us.
What makes me wonder though is why any one stays with these people. Often it's not a one off event, and often I see such people not behave that way once they are dumped and move onto a new partner.
When I've made it clear such behaviour would not be tolerated and I would walk if it continued it stopped.
I'm not known for idle threats. I always follow through.
If it was a mental disorder then surely it would always be present regardless of partner choice?
Do some people have BPD? Probably. But the majority of people you see like this it is just their personality. Nothing borderline or disordered about it.
The only disorder to them is how they behave and letting their emotions get the better of them.
I honestly wonder though how many of these labels are just an excuse for poor behaviour and a desire for certain people to not have to take any responsibility for themselves?
Not that I am discounting those who have real BPD's.
If anything it annoys me that the people who misuse such terms take away from such peoples real struggles.
I see many such 'disorders' these days, that only seem present when those with them are around certain people, but are strangely non-existent around those who won't tolerate it.
Have a former friend who is bi-polar when she is around her flatmate/carer who waits on her hand and foot while she lays in bed all day watching netflix, her psychiatrist, and our governments welfare agency Centerlink who gives her a disability pension and the facebook friends that pat her on the head and say "you poor thing".
But she would be totally fine when she would come stay and visit with the wife and I for weeks on end and when it was time to go to AC/DC concerts etc. generously paid for by we tax payers.
Too bipolar to work, but fine enough to run her own business from home I'm sure the government is unaware of.
Same for many kids who allegedly have ADHD. Amazingly need medicating when at home. But have no problems when with me, because I don't sit on my backside shrugging my shoulders and nothing else when they're being turds.
Amazing how a clip around the Ear hole from an adult willing to discipline seems to cure them of their ADHD instantly Vs. the meds they're on.
Wonder how many adults would be cured of their disorders by a clip around the ear hole also?
A lot of them I reckon.
