I underlined and bookmarked passages front to back that rang so true they must be revisited from time to time. I recommend the Kindle version so as to understand some of the charming "British informal" colloquialisms sprinkled throughout. 😊
Amanda's journey toward self discovery and healing show a dogged determination that pitted her against many obstacles she would work tirelessly to surmount. Ultimately, "My Alien Self: My Journey Back to Me," is a triumph of the human spirit that chooses life, warts and all, over despair and defeat.
Through all the confusion, chaos of dealing with her mother's own mental health issues as well as her own, Amanda is able to give a personal testimony that you cannot gain from reading other books about BPD.
Ms. Green has done an amazing job of giving detailed, intimate descriptions of her thought processes while trying to keep it together in search of a more balanced life, proving that people with mental health issues are not any different than people who are thought to be `normal.'
This book would benefit mental health professionals as well as family members of those who suffer with BPD as it offers an insight not found in many books.
Reading this book has brought me comfort, as I suffer from various mental illnesses as well, and left me feeling like I am not so alone in this, and that recovery is possible. I liked that it was written in first person because it has that "story-telling" effect. I am going to tell my mom and friends to read it, because I believe that this book could give them a better understanding of how I feel and what it is like to live with a mental illness.
She opens her heart and her soul to the reader. I could not put the book down. Often finding her life so much like mine, I found comfort that I was not a freak and I was not alone. Get this book. Read it and share it. It is fantastic.
