    borderline personality disorder or depression?

    After 40 years of being told (and treated) for depression, I have now been diagnosed as having borderline personality disorder.
    I have read up a bit about it but it seems to be very mixed as to what the symptoms actually are compared to depression.
    Can anybody help me with this as I am feeling very confused, thank you in advance

    BPD can be described as more of intense emotional disorder. Reckless behavior, inappropriate rage, depression, identity disturbia are also other symptoms. Depression is...sadness. There are symptoms that accompany depression, such as physical pain, illness...

    I hope your doc figures it out. Good luck.

    Thank you for your reply, I am still pretty confused, but trying to work through it all. Thanks again
