Hey. I think it can be helpful to talk with a teacher about having Borderline Personality Disorder. Not only will it be helpful for your teacher to understand why you might react in a certain way or have certain struggles, and take this into account in their reaction to you. It can also just be nice to have someone to talk about it; someone you can trust and can take a bit of the burden off your shoulders. You can always ask for a private conversation with your teacher in which you don't have to share too many details. If it feels good, you can always share more. If not, you have at least told them the bare minimum for him or her to take it into account.
