You could also be someone who tends to repress their emotions (for whatever reasons) which means that would be psychological. Repressed emotions could come from incomplete mourning about some event in your life or because of repressed anger about something (or both).
Signs of repressed anger:
procrastination, cynicism / pessimism, insomnia or excessive sleep, inappropriate drowsiness, fist clenching, "road rage", lateness, sighing, waking up tired, tiring easily, back pain, irritability, "rage attacks", sadistic or sarcastic humor, inappropriate cheerfulness, overcontrolled monotone voice, clenched jaws ("TMJ") and/or teeth grinding, muscle spasms, tics, or twitches
I'd say anyone of those causes could fit you.
Yes, everything I bolded describes me. Did you make that list knowing me? Ok....So it could very much be related to the causes of BPD. Where could I find more information? Can't the "acting in" version of BPD have repressed anger as a key symptom?
I am very much one who represses all sorts of emotions. But occasionally, I do act out, and it isn't pretty, especially when I get drunk. I am one of the most vindictive people you will meet and very sensitive to other people's moods and faces, such as if they appraise me negatively.
Nobody knows what the hell I am. Officially: Asperger's, Nonverbal Learning Disorder, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, Anxiety Disorder, Disassociative Disorder - NOS, and now, finally, Bipolar II.
