Borderline Personality Disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder, etc.

Posted by carolinerose74 @carolinerose74, Nov 24, 2017

I’m seeking more information regarding Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED), and various other related Psych disorders. I’ve been diagnosed with both BPD and IED, and would like to hear some tips/pointers from others suffering with similar disorders.

Hello Carolinerose74,

Welcome to Connect. Thank you for sharing a bit about yourself with the mental health group members and starting a discussion on borderline personality disorder. While we wait for some more members to chime in, would you feel comfortable sharing a bit more about yourself and your disorders?

@carolinerose74, if you could, would you mind explaining a bit more about intermittent explosive disorder? I have not heard of this before and would appreciate your help in better understanding this condition. If it isn’t too personal, are these conditions helped with any medications? Are you looking for other members to share some pointers that are not related to medications?

Hi, @carolinerose74. I’d like to echo Justin’s welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.

Here is some Mayo Clinic information that gives an overview of the different types of personality disorders and their clusters, as well as information specifically on the two personality disorders you mentioned, borderline personality disorder and intermittent explosive disorder:

Also, a few of our members have talked about these disorders, and I’d like to introduce you to them here in this discussion. Please meet: @windwalker , @liloleme, @kramer, @14gardens, @teal, @ta2dmom and @anndelusia. @johnbishop, @amberpep and @hopeful33250 may also have some thoughts for you.

If you don’t mind my asking, what type of therapy did your doctor propose for these two disorders?

Hello @carolinerose74, I would like to add my welcome along with Justin (@JustinMcClanahan) and Lisa (@lisalucier). I’m not sure I have any pointers other than suggestions where to find more research type information. I use Google Scholar ( when trying to find information about a diagnosis, treatments or drug side effects. I did a search on “Intermittent Explosive Disorder treatments”and sorted by the year to get the newest links. Here are the results of the search:,24&as_ylo=2017

Hope this helps,


@carolinerose74 – wanted to check in with you and see how things are going with you and the Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED) you mentioned?
