I just got this book through booksfree. It’s another in depth look at borderline personality disorder. I have come to the conclusion that every book I read about BPD will be one that sounds like someone has been taking notes inside my own head for years. This book is definitely no exception. I am only through the first 3 1/2 chapters, but it is a heart wrenching look at myself through a therapist’s eyes.
I found it a bit comical and telling that they used one of the poems I grew up with as an example for Chapter 3. You know the one with girl with the curl in the middle of her forehead? I was always the girl with the curl. I would hear that poem nearly daily as a child. Everyone was always shy to say the “when she was bad” part, because they saw me as such a good child. But if only they knew about the “horrid” little girl that was only just on the other side of that story… I wonder if my life would have been so sweet. *even if it was only at times*
