There's not really a one size fits all look at BPD. Some with BPD, you could even say a lot, could develop suicidal thoughts but it's not a given. I'm glad to hear it sounds like you're not having those thoughts at this time and would focus on if these thoughts do appear, to have some sort of structure and ground to help you through it. 7Cups is a great place to start, as there are many resources available and many great listeners to talk to.
It is common but that doesn't mean you will have those thoughts. Just like how you can be at high risk of getting the flu but end up not getting it that season. The flu isn't exactly the same but the risk is similar, if that makes sense.

With borderline personality disorder there is 9 symtoms in the DSM to be diagnosed but you only need to have 5 of them to be officially diagnosed as borderline, which means many people will experience it different, so you might have suicidal thoughts and you might not!
