Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. If you are hearing voices than that is not part of BPD as voices or hallucinations are considered a symptom of psychosis, so you may have another mental health disorder along with the BPD. Since hallucinations can only be treated with the proper medications, have you considered taking any psychotropic medications for your issue?
