Borderline Personality Disorder

Module 07 Borderline Personality Disorder Case Study
S.is a 48-year-old divorced woman with one adult daughter and three grandchildren. She is
currently working as an LPN part-time in a nursing home and works at a convenience store one
or two days per week. She has had many jobs over the last 22 years, usually changing every one
or two years to a new job. S notes that she has been called less often to work in the
convenience store and worries that they don’t like her anymore. She reports being written up
several times for arguing with customers. She also reports that she liked her supervisor at; first;
she says, “Now I hate her; she’s trying to get me fired.” S. reports that she has tried to get fulltime jobs five times in the last four years was hired for three but only lasted one or two weeks
at each one.
S. reports that she is currently not talking to her daughter because “she is mean to me and she
needs to apologize, or I won’t talk to her again.” She is upset that she hasn’t seen her three
small grandchildren in about a year. She sends them presents and cards frequently that say “I
still love you! Grandma” but hasn’t called them since she stopped talking to her daughter. She is
considering reporting to the county that her daughter is keeping her grandchildren from her.
S. is very unhappy that she isn’t in a relationship. She was abused by her ex-husband and had a
pattern of meeting and dating men who eventually abused her. She states that her last
relationship was very good; the man was not abusive, and “I loved him very much.” The
relationship ended for reasons that S. doesn’t understand. However, she does report many
arguments that ended in “scenes,” such as her throwing chairs, stomping out of the house,
making crank phone calls to his family, and calling the police with false reports. But S. also
reports that she “couldn’t have loved him more, and I showed it.” She gives examples of going
to her boyfriend’s place of work with flowers, buying him expensive presents, surprising him
with tickets to Mexico at the last minute – she was very upset that he wasn’t willing to drop
everything and go with her. S. reports asking him why he didn’t love her and what she was
doing wrong regularly. When the boyfriend asked to break up, S. reported sitting outside his
house for weeks, crying; she called his mother, called his boss, and called and texted him until
he filed a restraining order. This occurred about four months ago.
S. admitted herself to the mental health unit when she felt suicidal. She reports that she had
stopped her psychotherapy three months ago and stopped going to DBT. She also stopped her
anti-depressant at that time, as she felt it wasn’t working, and missed her last two psychiatrist
appointments.
