Soo I've been questioning some things all, my life they told me I have borderline personality disorder this year they brought up bipolar ... An I started meds ... So after a whole year of med tweaking it's like my symptoms  have basically become mostly dormant so I wonder since meds completely changed my moods if that means that I had bipolar the whole Time also does ,medicine even help borderline

It can be both - it's not an either-or diagnosis.

Medications can't treat BPD itself, but it can help some of the symptoms and treat co-morbidities.  When I was in the thick of the BPD stuff in my early 20s, Seroquel really helped settle down my moods and I'm the furthest thing from bipolar.

It can be both and both is a common comorbidity. Mood disorders and personality disorders are completely different.

One is triggered by nothing except chemicals (and sleep rhythms, perhaps stress in the presence of the other 2) and the other is triggered by anything, usually environmental or interpersonal, or if applicable, trauma.
