Look on the APA (american psychological association) website. According to that website, there is no such thing as an "unstable personality disorder".  It could be borderline, which I have they tell me, but really only you can say. This is because you have to decide if five or more of the traits fit you. This is the only way to diagnose it.

I was abused as a child also. My friend, who is a social worker tells me that when children are abused, it messes up their sense of boundaries and .....I think she called it the brain blue print. But anyway, it is common for a person who has a personality disorder to also have been abused in some way.

I hope this helps. Hugs
