    re: What is this?

    In North America, the standard diagnostic system is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual or DMS, now in version 5 (DSM5).

    In the UK and Europe, they more commonly use the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10).

    The DSM diagnosis is called Borderline Personality Disorder. The ICD equivalent diagnoses are emotionally unstable personality disorder, emotional intensity disorder, or borderline type.

    See Borderline personality disorder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for more information and additional links.

    Re: What is this?

    Thank you! On a recent visit to A+E this term was used a lot instead of the usual, so I just wondered if something had changed? It was very noticeable for me!! In a funny way, I am glad it hasn't!!!
