Borderline Personality Disorder. "What the hell was that?" raged Rachel Reiland when she read the diagnosis written in her medical chart. As the 29-year old accountant, wife, and mother of young children would soon discover, it was the diagnosis that finally explained her explosive anger, manipulative behaviors, and self-destructive episodes- including bouts of anorexia, substance abuse, and sexual promiscuity. With astonishing honesty, Reiland's memoir reveals what mental illness feels like and looks like from the inside, and how healing from such a devastating disease is possible through intensive therapy and the support of loved ones.
Informative, helpful, personal understanding and growth.

Best book on mental illness I've read
A very well written book by someone who's "been there". It is written like a story (not just slabs of information) so it's easy to read, and quite entertaining.
I would recommend this book to anyone who suffers from BPD and their family, as well as anyone who has an interest in mental illness.
The reader is led to understand how a person with mental illness feels, and what makes them tick. It is therefore also an important book for mental health practitioners, to help them understand BPD from the other side.
Most importantly, this book offers real hope for recovery.
