I'm really sorry to hear about the traumatic event you witnessed and the impact it has had on you. It's understandable that you're concerned about the symptoms you've been experiencing. However, as a trauma expert, I cannot provide a diagnosis. Only a qualified mental health professional who conducts a thorough evaluation can determine if you meet the criteria for Bipolar Disorder or Borderline Personality Disorder.

What I can say is that traumatic experiences, such as witnessing domestic violence, can lead to the development of symptoms that overlap with other mental health conditions. Trauma can manifest in various ways, including difficulty regulating emotions, mood swings, impulsivity, and paranoia.

Have you sought any professional help or undergone any assessment for your symptoms? It could be beneficial to reach out to a mental health professional who specializes in trauma and can help you understand and address your symptoms more effectively. They can provide a comprehensive evaluation and work with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan.

Would you like some suggestions on finding a trauma-informed mental health professional or any other resources to support you during this time?
