Living with someone who has a personality disorder is challenging and contradictory. It can make me feel crazy, dazed, confused, unloved, angry, causing me to be off of my own emotional balance. Out of The FOG is a place where I can go to read and reread to bring myself back to my center. This is not always immediate. It is a process and it takes contemplating and meditation about the realities of this baffling disorder. Journaling is a good tool to practice when you are extremely overwhelmed and can't leave the person...Like moving away...divorce...etc...
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.

This book is certainly a wealth of good information for those on the receiving end of PD behavior or general poor behavior. It would be a great resource for when offline, but there is a small problem - no table of contents. This leaves you to trying to remember where everything is or setting your own bookmarks instead of being able to jump to particular sections/topics quickly.

This book has a lot of very clear, step-by-step advice for what to do and not do in response to a long list of BP behavior, as well as plenty of suggestions for taking care of yourself. I found it to be comforting, validating, informative and instructive. Many books on this subject do not have as much advice that can be easily located and directly applied.
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!

4.5 stars. "Personality Disorder" is a phrase that unfortunately sounds like someone CHOOSING to be a jerk. Not so; people with these mental illnesses have been shown to have different brain wiring than neurotypical people. (Although, like most mental disorders, there is not nearly enough clinical research on record.)

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.

This book pretty much is the Out of the FOG website transcribed word-for-word into book form. Everything that is in this book can be found on their website, and a lot of the information/sections in the book are repeated. Combined with the typos, this makes for a long, boring, and difficult read. I wouldn't recommend anyone spend their money on this book when you can get the exact same information for free on their website.

This book is laid out so well that I was able to find a support group and an effective plan to begin improving the quality of my life. Definitions of various personality disorders were easily understood. I could not put this down. I read it cover to cover in one sitting. I have joined an online support group. I have a list of movies to watch that portray personality disorders. I have a list of goals written down that I intend to share with a therapist. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is tender hearted, generous, charitable, and kind. This book teaches us how to recognize narcissists and abusers. I intend to re-read this AGAIN.

Very helpful for those lost in the FOG, particularly those who are having trouble finding the words to define, describe, and understand the situations created by people around them. While it's not so great at providing solutions (if there even are any really fair, just and reasonable ones at some point) it does help pinpoint where and how the issues are created.
