    • Abstract:
      Various theories suggest that individuals with bulimia nervosa (BN) binge eat and purge to regulate mood. One hundred thirty-three women with BN were studied using ecological momentary assessment techniques. Using the Revised Diagnostic Interview for Borderlines, 25 of these women were diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD), a psychiatric disorder characterized by problems with mood regulation. Due to their marked reactivity of mood, it was hypothesized that participants in the BPD group would demonstrate different mood patterns than those participants in the nonborderline bulimic (NBPD) group. Specifically, participants in the BPD group were expected to show more variability in mood throughout the day; to have bulimic events preceded by more minor mood changes; and to evidence more severe mood changes than the NBPD group. Hierarchical linear and random regression models were used to compare the groups in terms of daily and momentary mood states (negative affect, positive affect, anger-hostility) and bulimic behaviors. The BPD group had greater daily variability in negative affect on bulimic event days and more variability in positive affect regardless of day. Momentary mood states immediately preceding and following bulimic events were generally higher for the BPD group. Differences were not observed between the groups in change of mood state (i.e., trajectory or rate) in relation to bulimic events. The results support the view that individuals with BN react to mood changes by engaging in bulimic behavior and that comorbid BPD serves to amplify mood state. Implications for treatment are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
