Product Description

A source of hope, expert advice, and guidance for people with borderline personality disorder and those who love them

Do you experience frightening, often violent mood swings that make you fear for your sanity? Are you often depressed? Do you engage in self-destructive behaviors such as drug or alcohol abuse, anorexia, compulsive eating, self-cutting, and hair pulling? Do you feel empty inside, or as if you don''t know who you are? Do you dread being alone and fear abandonment? Do you have trouble finishing projects, keeping a job, or forming lasting relationships?

If you or someone you love answered yes to the majority of these questions, there''s a good chance that you or that person suffers from borderline personality disorder, a commonly misunderstood and misdiagnosed psychological problem afflicting tens of millions of people. Princess Diana was one of the most well-known BPD sufferers.

This book is fantastic. My 23 year old granddaughter is a Heroin addict and has mental problems. We always thought she was slightly Bipolar. She used Heroin to calm her mind. After she and I read this book we knew she had Borderline Personality Disorder. I got her into a place that treats mental health first along with addiction. It has changed her life along with the whole family’s life. Thank you for writing such a wonderful book. We are so thankful you did

My mom got me this book a few years after I was diagnosed with BPD, and struggling with the diagnosed and therapy and feeling like I had no control. I threw it in the back of my closet because I was just ANGRY, and it was lost. Now, years later, I have a better therapist and am more properly medicated, and Amazon suggested it for my Kindle. I finally understand WHY I do the things I do, and when not always the why, the because. And the real-life examples he gave were practically ripped from the headlines of my life. I would recommend this book to anyone with, or newly diagnosed with, BPD, know someone with BPD, are taking a psych class, are interested in psych, are a psych or civil servant major. I recommend all health workers read this, and I recommend the police read this. It could save lives.

The best BPD book I''ve ever found. I purchased a copy for myself years ago and loved it so much, I got one for my (sometimes long-distance) husband soon after, as well as my mother. A problem I found with most BPD books was that they explained the symptoms, but not always the reasoning behind them, and almost never the feelings the sufferer experiences. This book helped me tremendously in really understanding myself. It explained many things, even some behaviours that I hadn''t linked to my BPD. Nowadays I''m doing much better, and I owe that in part to this book. It really helped me feel understood and not quite so isolated in a very difficult time. And it was perfect for explaining to others the way I felt. My husband gained so much insight into what I experience. So many things I couldn''t explain to him, this book covered them. He became so much more patient with me once he better understood me. Truly an amazing book. Forever grateful to the author.

Would have been a perfect book if it weren''t for the individual stories representing each borderline trait. They felt like they went on forever and didn''t really offer any perspective to me as someone with BPD. However, in a book for partners or family members who suffer with it, they would have been more appropriate.

The individual traits were very detailed and thorough, often offering examples of behavior that are not obvious in the brief DSM-5 list. I felt like I learned a lot about myself from reading this book. The insight helped me understand why I do these "crazy" things, and better yet, what they look like in the real world. For someone who isn''t well read in psychology or social behavior, this is a great resource because it turns technical terms into social mechanisms that many of us borderlines can relate to. Example: "distorted self image" is described using a situation where the borderline develops a habit of adopting personality traits/interests from those around them in order to establish a connection, "unstable relationships" is described using a situation where the borderline moves between partners, or in and out of relationships but is unable to find happiness due to rapidly changing perspectives of their partners.

I think this was a great resource, but flipping through pages and pages of stories of "case studies" was really exhausting and made it difficult to read. That''s why I deducted two stars.

Ok so far the book is decent but there are a few things just screaming at my ocd in this book. Many times sentences will state she then later in the sentence state he. They should really just use a non sex identifier to eliminate that. But there is a checklist which only mentions childhood trauma… like so now adult trauma is left out? Idk. There is good information but I feel like it was written quick and not really reread to make sure mistakes weren’t made. Just my opinion.

I bought this book on the advice of a psychiatrist. I''m grateful that we had only 3 sessions.

This book''s subtitle, "Living with Borderline Personality Disorder" couldn''t be more misleading. The authors apparently couldn''t make up their minds as to its target audience. Not only were the case studies scattered throughout graphic to the point of being triggering, but at the end of virtually every chapter are "Action Steps" aimed to assist either people with Borderline Personality Disorder (who are called "borderlines" throughout, thus subtly dehumanizing them) or those having personal or professional relationships with them. Both early in and as the book winds down, the jargon level is quite high, and I got the distinct impression that at least 90% of it is filler.

This book is of little use to either people with BPD, those in relationships with them, or clinicians. It''s both disturbing and unhelpful. If I could refrain from giving it any stars I would.

This book is a must for anyone in your life who says why do you do the things you do! A rational explanation and resource for an illness we really cannot answer. The mind is a wonderful complicated thing. If a chemical imbalance, and or heredity factors are in place the challenge to to be stable becomes a chore. I seek out any useful guide to reference , not only for myself but for others. This is a definite shelf keeper. A book to go back to time and time again. Things will make sense, and helpful tools are made available. I would highly recommend this book.

I liked the book overall. You will learn a lot. The downfall I thought were too many long stories. I get that the author was trying to give examples of what he was talking about but sometimes I would forget that I was reading a book on borderline. In fact, in one chapter, it was like reading soft core porn. That example story, had me questioning why I was reading this book. Might be better choices out there but still decent.

This was recommended to me by a professional to see if it would help understand a disorder a family member has. I found the book difficult to really get to grips with, due to it phasing in and out of stories that were disjointed. It also gave a very black side to this disorder which not every suffer seems to have. If you read it, I suggest you find other books and articles to balance the scales for more concise understanding of BPD. What I wanted was information on treatments and a more practical understanding, I thought the book too jigsaw like.
