should i see a doctor or am i just worrying too much?

I think I might have borderline personality disorder. Or at least something similar to it. I took 3 different online test for it and they all recommended I ask a doctor about it. Then I talked to my psychology teacher about it and he told me I should see a doctor as soon as I can. Normally I would have ignored it and assumed it's just anxiety but I think I might actually have something. I love helping people but anytime I feel like I'm not helping someone, even a little bit, I get depressed and often even suicidal. I've made a few attempts but in the past I always knew I had someone who needed me around, whether it was a girlfriend, my cat, or just a very close friend and this always stopped me from following through. Now I often feel like I don't have anyone who needs me anymore and it makes me feel completely worthless. I find that the worse of a mood I'm in the more reckless I become. When I mess something up and get irritated I literally beat myself Sometimes. When I think I'm losing someone close to me, even if it's obvious that I'm really not, I do everything in my power to avoid it. Sometimes this actually leads to me driving people away. I have a few friends who always come to me to talk about their problems, which brings me a lot of joy, but I never feel I can share my problems with them and I feel terrible about it. They can usually tell when something is wrong and they try to help me but every time I turn them down.

Hello there,

I think you should. I too am in school (studying psychology, ironically) and also have a firm belief I am borderline. Please don't look over these feelings...you have them for a reason and should not devalue what you think might be going on with you. After all, you know you the best! I think the best thing to do is explain to your physician what you're thinking, and request a referral so that you can get an evaluation from a qualified psychologist/psychiatrist. Please feel free to message me anytime, it seems we are on common ground.
