Chinese Woman Diagnosed with ‘Love Brain’ Condition Following Overwhelming Relationship Behavior

In a recent incident in Chengdu, China, an 18-year-old university student, identified only as Xiaoyu, was diagnosed with what is colloquially known as ‘love brain’, a term used to describe a severe case of borderline personality disorder. This diagnosis came after her boyfriend called the police due to her excessive contacting behaviors, which included calling him over 100 times in a single day. The situation escalated to the point where police intervention was necessary when she threatened to jump from a balcony after her calls were unanswered.

According to the South China Morning Post, Xiaoyu’s condition manifested in extreme dependency and constant demands for attention from her partner, which began to suffocate their relationship. Her behavior highlights the challenges of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder, which often coexist with borderline personality disorder. Dr. Du Na from The Fourth People’s Hospital of Chengdu, who treated Xiaoyu, emphasized the complexity of her condition and its potential to overlap with other psychological issues.

The term ‘love brain’ sparked significant backlash on Chinese social media, with many criticizing the trivialization of a serious mental health issue. Users on Douyin expressed concerns about labeling such behavior, debating the appropriateness of the term. This case has ignited a broader discussion on mental health awareness and the need for proper terminology that does not diminish the severity of psychological conditions.
