It is not a surprise she was diagnosed with bpd years ago.
Considerations in Women’s Mental Health: Women with Borderline Personality Disorder
Anita H. Clayton, MD
Primary Psychiatry. 2004;11(10):21-22
Diagnosis
Many psychiatrists are familiar with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition,1 criteria for borderline personality disorder (BPD). The criteria include a pervasive (long-standing) pattern of instability of self-image, interpersonal relationships, and mood associated with self-damaging impulsivity manifested by five or more of the following: attempts to avoid feelings of abandonment, use of splitting (alternating idealization and devaluation), identity disturbance, self-injurious behavior, affective instability, feelings of emptiness, impulsivity, uncontrolled anger, and micropsychotic (transient) episodes. Still, it can be difficult to diagnose BPD because of the overlap of symptoms with mood disorders, eating disorders, substance abuse disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other personality disorders.
A history of physical or sexual abuse is not uncommon in BPD. The course of the illness is variable with functional impairment and risk of suicide greatest in early adulthood. The prevalence of BPD in the general population is approximately 2%, with a 5-fold greater prevalence among mental health outpatients. Approximately 75% of individuals with BPD are women, and individuals are five times as likely to be diagnosed with BPD if a first-degree biological relative has the disorder. Recurrent suicidal or self-destructive behaviors are frequently what brings these individuals to treatment. These behaviors are often in response to perceived rejection, abandonment, or separation, especially from idealized individuals. The resulting fear, anger, and devaluation may lead to impulsive, self-destructive behaviors, such as dramatic outbursts, self-mutilation, or suicide threats/attempts.

That is a well written and accurate description. Classic. Borderlines can range from very low funtioning individuals to high functioning individuals. A challenging and difficult population to treat. They drain and wear out many mental health professionals. Some therapists refuse to work with this diagnosis,

I HAVE Borderline Personality Disorder.. actually said to have "an extraordinary case of it" and was diagnosed by multiple doctors (mostly through all of my hospitalizations). I don't care about the lives of celebs but Jolie IS a very typical Borderline case.. I can obviously spot it easily in others. And as Pamela had said, many doctors refuse to work with Borderlines because we're very difficult, unpredictable, may idealize them one day and hate them the next, etc. blah blah blah but I think that's terrible.. how are we supposed to get help then?! People don't understand this illness enough.. we struggle so much on the inside although it doesn't always show on the outside. We suffer in silence a lot of the time. Our chronic emptiness and anger literally feel like they're eating away at us. I am very very lucky to have found a therapist who will work with me through my Borderline traits. She is extremely understanding, compassionate, and absolutely wonderful! I just wish more people could be that great of a listener so they'd gain a better understanding of the Borderline Personality...

Didn't they think Danny Bonaduce might be borderline instead of bipolar?
They seem nothing alike.

Professionals don't like it because they can't just medicate it away. I sometimes suffer from anxiety, but typing seems to make it go away without Xanax. Chocolate works too. Starbuck's makes it worse.

Try being married to someone like that.
They wear you with their threats of possible suicide,
crazy stuff they write to people, disappearing acts to "punish" you if you don't enable or react dramatically to their behaviors/outbursts and think their behavior is normal.
Yikes! I have read, however, that if someone drinks long enough,
their behaviors can mimic those of psychotic people.
May be true because when the person in question got a handle
on their alcohol addiction, they were a different person.

Everybody has something they struggle with.
