Publisher's Summary

Typically, borderline personality disorder is defined as a mental health disorder that causes people to have turbulent feelings which result in turbulent actions. More often than not, these feelings and actions occur over an extended period of time. Therefore, a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder cannot be made unless an individual has displayed these characteristics for several months to a period of several years. In addition, most mental health experts avoid making a diagnosis throughout childhood and adolescence because the mind of a child or an adolescent works differently than the mind of an adult. It is the general consensus that it is important to wait until a person has reached adulthood, thereby allowing the brain to fully develop before a diagnosis can be made with any certainty whatsoever. This is done so that mental health professionals can work on the side of caution. However, it sometimes has rather detrimental effects for the person that is suffering from the disorder because anyone that has been displaying these characteristics earlier in their life is often forced to either go without treatment or be treated for something that they are not suffering from until they finally get a definitive diagnosis. This makes it that much more difficult for anyone that is finally diagnosed to get the proper treatment and for the treatment to be effective.

No self help

This book wasn’t really self help as it was telling you about the disorder and ways in which it is treated. I start therapy this week so I guess I need to stop searching for books that would help me. But nevertheless this is the third book I have purchased from audible that claimed to be self help, and it really just was facts about the disorder again. Kinda disappointing.

Good read

This was a good read. Could have been a great one if the book was longer and also gave more “self Help” tips.

As someone who suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder, this book gave me hope

As someone who suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder, this book validated everything single thing I’ve always felt about myself but haven’t known why. I feel more capable now in my understanding of my disorder and it has truly given me a hope that I haven’t ever experienced before. If you’re someone who is curious about BPD for whatever reason, this book is worth the read.!

Short, but Informative

The book was a little shorter than I had expected, but managed to be extremely informative regardless of that fact. The narrator was a bit monotone, but was precise and had an intriguing tone. This audio book was definitely worth the time.
