My daughter has experienced several occasions where she becomes uncontrollable and is not rational.
The events are usually brought on by stress, personal sadness and hormones.
She tends to lash out at family members and during the last two (6 weeks apart) she was full of hate.
I don't think she remembers the entire ordeal.
It can be several months between events.
Is this common among people suffering from BPD?
All very common for those of us with BPD. Is she willing to talk about it? At 35, my mom is the one who brought it to my attention that she had researched what was going on with me and it looked like BPD. I got diagnosed a little less than 4 months ago and my life has greatly improved since I figured out what I was dealing with and took a new approach to therapy. My heart goes out to families where BPD is present because I know it's hard on everyone.
