Chrysalis.

chrys·a·lis — a transitional state;
a sheltered state or stage of being or growth.

Imagine that a butterfly may not metamorphose just once, but could seek or create a protective shelter at any time, and emerge as something a little different.

That may be a more beautiful way to think about how a person with borderline personality disorder sometimes shrinks back inside of themselves protectively.
