Mental disorder or not, you must set boundaries. Tell her you take your marriage vows seriously--i.e. "Through sickness and in health". But, she MUST get help. In other words, she must uphold her end of the deal.
Unfortunately, it's now fashionable to sling out letters of the alphabet (PTSD, BPD, bpd,etc.) as a reason for everything. That solves nothing. Many mental disorders are improperly diagnosed anyway. She should probably be evaluated by a psychologist to get a proper diagnosis. Although therapist are great at detecting problems, they will many times refer patients on for further testing. Only then does anyone know how best to resolve the problem.
Also, has hormonal problems been ruled out?
