It reminds me to take time for myself.
My resentment comes when I feel I don't have anyway out of relationship. I feel my feelings and I just want to leave. I get tired of the way I am triggered, time and time again, by senseless conduct, ridiculous verbal disrespect, character assassinations; coming from someone you married in church before God and family. I recommend this to anyone looking for the reality of the whys and for solutions that will help you recover and become healthy again.
I gave it 4/5 stars because the Kindle version has no table of contents, but I still recommend this book. At $2.99 it's a GREAT value!
With an estimated 8-12% of the population having a personality disorder, this means if you know more than 10 people, YOU know someone with a personality disorder. An in-law, a neighbor, a co-worker, an ex or current partner, a sibling, a parent, a child. Possibly yourself (in which case, this book may be uncomfortable reading for you, though it may be helpful in finding ways to deal with the people in your life who ALSO have PD's). Like most mental disorders, there are spectrums and cycles - someone may show severe symptoms, others may show symptoms only occasionally.
Where this book excels is in the descriptions of what each personality disorder is, how it presents from the neurotypical's point of view (this would be especially helpful to a writer who wants to include a character with a personality disorder), the descriptions of what each PD is from the DSM-IV (although there is now a somewhat controversial DSM-V that is out) and sometimes from the World Health Organization's criteria for that PD. What works, in dealing with someone with a specific PD, and what DOESN'T work. (Bringing home flowers as a surprise can actually cause distress and suspicion for people with certain PD's, rather than delight and gratitude.) Where support and resources can be found.
The book is packed with links that take you to other sections of the book.Read more ›
