Common features include:
Being devastated by negative feelings like distress, anxiety, worthlessness or anger avoiding other people and feeling empty and emotionally disconnected, difficulty to manage negative feelings without self-harming (e.g. abusing drugs and alcohol) or, in rare cases, threatening to other people odd behavior difficulty to sustain stable and close relationships, especially with partners, children and periods of losing touch of reality. Symptoms usually get worse when the individual is stressed. People with personality disorders often suffer with other mental health problems, especially depression and substance abuse.
