Rather than SMSing, why not jot down those thoughts, type and print them, and give them to your therapist at the start of a session, as an agenda to get the discussion going ?
Nobody remains in therapy for 5 years without being committed to it. Your description of how things have been going illustrates why borderlines are difficult to handle in treatment.
Yes, I guess a professional who recognizes the potential problems would be wary of someone recognizeable as Borderline, which i probably to the benefit of both of them. Its far more scary for both where the therapist doesn't know what they're getting into or how to handle it.
Personally, I often treated people with Borderline Syndrome ( which the Amerifcans recognized long before the British and SA's did ) ; but its wise to get involved one at a time. Too many norderlines in one's basket can be overwhelming.
I think there is a good chance of changing how you behave ; being borderline is a package of potentials, and where therapy focusses at least in part on recognizing potentially unhelpful behaviours, and practising better alternatives, this can be useful.
And try to recognize he is there even when you're not in contact, just as Hong Kong is there even when you're not visiting it.
As you recognize what is unhelpful behaviour and that it needs to change, you have an advantage over many others who haven't yet achieved that insight
