"All the information I found said that if I was so messed up that I would try to make a relationship with a Borderline person work instead of heading for the hills, there was little hope for ME - let alone the Borderline person. This book was the first time I saw information about people living with BPD and the people who love them that doesn't villify behavior or emotions but expertly explains the logic behind BPD and gives concrete, simple ways to both protect yourself and engage constructively with your loved one in the face of emotional chaos."
Even though this book is intended for someone who has a relationship with a Borderline person, it is also extremely helpful information for someone with BPD who is completely baffled, seeking answers or in the beginning stages of treatment to understand what is going on with them.
Not all borderlines are the same. Many popular books on the disorder tend to reinforce the idea that borderlines should mostly be avoided. I don't know how this can lead to recovery or healing for anyone. It can be very damaging to be told that your mental illness is shameful, dangerous, monstrous, and can't be changed. Besides it being hurtful, it is also untrue. Most symptoms of BPD can be treated. Not all can. But there is hope. People who love borderlines need to understand this. And so do people with BPD.
I believe this book can be useful to BPD patients themselves. I find it to be a very nonjudgmental exploration of what BPD is, how it can present, why it happens, etc.
One thing I will note is that the book often skirts around the issue of trauma and BPD. I believe that the author is trying not to shame, blame, or frighten away family members or parents who may have had a part in the trauma, and who are now reading the book to understand or help a loved one.
