Touted as the only book of its kind, this is a firsthand account of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). An accountant and mother of three, Reiland (a pseudonym) tells the poignant story of her life, which included all-too-familiar episodes of anorexia, promiscuity, impulsiveness, suicide attempts, institutionalization in a mental hospital, and often unrelenting, anger-intensive, violent, and unpredictable behavior. This is not intended as a text for treatment but a story of how one person lived with and overcame an affliction that many professionals view as untreatable. What results is a gripping, fast-paced narrative that's often hard to put down and will no doubt inspire sufferers and caretakers to march on. It is a story based on stark reality and hope, much like Steve Hamilton's I Want My Life Back. Recommended for all public and academic libraries as a complement to treatment guides like Jerold J. Kreisman and Hal Straus's I Hate You, Don't Leave Me. Melody Ballard, Washoe Cty. Lib. Syst., Reno Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

The fact that this is a true story, and that the author (as she describes in the book) was such a dedicated journal keeper / note taker as to be able to recall this level of detail, gives this the potential to be a very healing read. The fact that she is also a good writer (or had very good editors to help her to keep what could have been a monster of a story to balance and keep interesting) seals the deal.
Read it from beginning to end in about 36 hours of living, then instantly gave a copy to a person that I know struggling with similar issues. They also appreciated it.
It is harrowing, and so, so very true-to-life for anyone that has seen or dealt with these issues, and also very, very hopeful and instructive.
This author (my understanding is that Rachel is a pseudonym) has done a tremendous service to a great many suffering people by writing this book. It's existence is evidence both of her own recovery and that people can and do, in fact, recover from BPD.
I have since recommended this book to numerous patients and providers. Patients report feeling normalized or "less crazy" (their words) upon reading this book. Ms. Reiland's story encourages them to work hard in treatment and keep the faith that things can be better with hard work that is sometimes painful and always challenging in the beginning. As a provider, it gave me a greater understanding of the depth and breadth of the thoughts and feelings that those with BPD deal with on a daily basis. This has helped me develop new techniques--as well as refine the old ones--for combating the issues associated with BPD.
I truly admire Ms. Reiland for her bravery and willingness to be so honest with herself and the world as to what it's truly like to live with BPD and face its demons on a daily basis. So many of those with BPD suffer in silence, mutilate themselves and/or take their own lives, so I try to proliferate this book as much as possible in an effort to alleviate any suffering possible. I recently recommended this book to the mother of a budding BPD so that she could better understand her daughter and start helping her before her daughter leaves home for college, with the hope that her daughter will continue her treatment even after she leaves the family home.
I also commend Ms. Reiland's hard work and persistence, very evident in the book, at overcoming the urges and impulses that accompany this personality style. Kudos and thank you for writing such an impressive and enlightening work.
