Pros: Very raw, well-written memoir of a woman diagnosed ant treated for BPD
Cons: Coarse language and sexual content may turn off some readers

Rachel Reiland (a pseudonym) was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder at the age of 29. Through intense therapy, she learned to accept it and understand the causes and reasons behind it, and eventually emerges a whole person again. Very good read. I definitely could relate to her fears and frustrations as well as recognize many of the triggers and reactions she described.

Pros: helps me to understand this disorder
Cons:

It's a good book. Helps one to understand how life is being affected by BPD and gives hope that it can be overcome.

Pros: I have been diagnonised with bpd
Cons: I don't know

I was in therapy for for 12 years dealing with this bpd, it has been the best book to come along since "Ihate You, Don't leave Me" I also liked this book cause it was writen by a girl. I callrd My old therapist and told her how helpful I found the book to be also. I think it's a great book.
