Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The symptoms explained in your query are cladssically persent in borderline personality disorder. Although this is possible that you narrated these symptoms after going through the online literature for borderline personality disorder.

If the above narration is not influenced by the online information there is no doubt that you are suffering with borderline personality disorder for which formal diagnosis can be received after consulting a psychiatrist in person.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
