In my experience people with BPD are very toxic and life destroying. I didn't think you could get cured? you only treat your symptoms.
In my experience people with BPD can choose to be 'toxic and life distroying' but equally 'normal people' can choose to be 'toxic and life distroying' as well.

There is nothing about BPD per se that makes someone 'bad'. A minority of suffers who have it the most severely may (not by choice) apear to be 'toxic and life distroying', but this would be very much a result of their illness opposed to them.

I did what you did, pushed on - for a very long time. Then my symptoms got even worse. But my friend kept supporting me and pushing me to get help and I only got my BPD diagnosis because of how persistent she was about me getting the right help. Don't let the symptoms manifest into something worse by leaving it untreated. So please go back to your GP and be persistent with getting help. It's worth trying to ask for a referral.
Thank you for your understanding, I’m moving back home to live with my family so I’ll sign up to a doctors there and hopefully get help there. Whatever the issue is I’d like to know and it’s unlikely the GP can help if it isn’t depression or anxiety. It may not be bpd it could be something else but whatever it is it would be helpful to know! I hope you’re okay

Thank you for your pleasant compliment. Please go educate yourself.
Not really, I said in my experience which was true. Then I asked a question. You don't have to like my shared experience. I am asking the question about treatment. Someone with BPD did in effect help ruin my life. I asked a question. I also have cousin who has it and 'he' is very malicious. My experiences have been toxic.

Like narcissistic, antisocial and other personalities if not treated are also very toxic personalities you can't deny that. it is a fact. When you look up what BDP means it can cause harm not just to people with BDP but others around them.

Your question is an interesting one actually. And there is no clear answer.
Until recently, BPD was officially considered to be life long/ incurable in the same way that a learning disability or autism is.
This is no longer the case.
Many people do recover in the sence that they no longer meet the diagnostic criteria for it.

However, the people that 'recover' clinically as a whole still have very poor 'functional outcomes'. So rates of poverty are very high, rates of full time employment are very low.

And, despite being 'recovered' most of these people will report enduring social/ relationship difficulties.

Personality disorders effect the following aspects of a person mood, impulse control, interpersonal functioning and cognition

So really when you talk about a clinical recovery from BPD you are actually talking about symptoms in relation to mood and impulse control remitting not interpersonal functioning and some aspects of cognition.

Is that really a recovery?

I would not call that recovery. I also think they must have predisposition to be BPD like stress and PTSD.

No, I'm talking about studies looking at BPD in twins not parent vs child.
Twins are brought up in the same environment... That makes it even harder to determine whether it's nature or nurture

I think relationships with people with BPD can be really difficult, they can be toxic - but they can also not be.

Some of my closest friends have BPD and my friendships with them are the ones I value the most (just ime - not trying to invalidate your experiences in the slightest)
