BPD and knows the difficult road involved for both families and BPD sufferers. She is insightful, warm and insightful. I highly recommend this book to families and those with BPD!!!
Since I have recently been diagnosed with BPD, I decided to give this book a try. I felt that I could really use any advice it had to give, so I had nothing to lose by reading it, and it’s a short little book anyway.
Overall, I’d say it’s an okay book. I wasn’t overly satisfied with it but I wasn’t exactly disappointed either. It was interesting to read the thoughts of someone else diagnosed with BPD but it was more of just an encouragement than actual real advice, if that makes sense.
It was nice reading something filled with so much positivity about the disorder, so if you’re just looking for a short, positive read, this might be the book for you. Overall, however, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it as I believe there’s other books that might be more worth your time.
