Yes to remind me what to do.
It really helped me understand my crazy ass mother in law.
It was a help book no characters.
All i am able to.
Lots of insight.
This book had great information on how to deal with someone that is in your life that is or has the behaviors of Borderline Personality Disorder. Gave good examples of the dynamic that occurs in such relationships as well as ways to approach each issue.
So glad I found this book. My husband and I listen to it over and over and learn more about our BPD daughter and how to relate in a more healthy and safe way. It is an invaluable resource. You will be blown away by how universal your experience is when you've likely felt so isolated previously. It was freeing. to say the least.
Possibly. I got it in an audio format because of time constraints. I could listen while doing other tasks. I did purchase a print version for a friend of mine after listening to the audio.
This book has some valuable communication and managing tips. I did find that it was directed more towards spouses. I was looking for help with teen children. However, the authors made the point that children are often not officially diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, thus the books focus is adults. Overall, good material.
many scenarios that matched exact events in my life living with a bp for 15 years. Gives great explanation of why they do what they do. It all makes perfect sense now! So glad I got this book! I just won a custody battle against my ex-wife and this explains everything! This book really helped me. So glad I got it. A+! Even offered closure for me. Thanks!
Recommended for anyone who might want to learn how to deal with difficult people- not only for those with BPD. Provides some understanding and how to pull from your own emotional reserves.
I am only on chapter 4. I got this for my husband because I have BPD. I must say this book is making me feel worse and for him yes he will have a better understanding. But even if we have any type of argument that is actually his fault he is now going to throw it back on me. I HATE BPD. I HATE WHAT IT DOES TO ME, AND MOST OF ALL I HATE PEOPLE WHO WANT TAKE THE TIME TO UNDERSTAND WHAT BPD IS.
If you live with someone who has, or you might suspect has borderline personality disorder, then you seriously need to read this book. It was a huge source of help for me.
