Are people still diagnosed with borderline personality disorder?


I am currently taking an abnormal psyc. class and just finished the chapter on personality disorders. After reading up on Borderline Personality, I found that most of the symptoms described were similar to behaviors I had as a child and even know. Does it seem that Psychiatrist just by pass these much more “involved” disorders and label everything as depression? Do you know anyone who has been given this diagnosis? If so, did it take years or was it recognized quickly?
