Anyone Read This Gem of A Book? (Borderline PD)
 
STOP WALKING ON EGSHELLS? It is supposed to be a book about understanding/coping with a family member who has Borderline Personality Disorder.....and of course the more I read the more it was describing me. Great book. I highly recommend it especially to those who cut or self harm. I'm not scared that I might be BPD but amused and relieved. Absurdity amuses me and my relationship antics are somewhat that. Also, I believe that I can get therapy and really improve and cope. If in fact BPD is my problem. Happy reading to all.

I've heard of it but it bugs me how there's so many books about coping with us borderliners and like 2 that are written for borderliners themselves. It's like well there's no hope for you so we'll just teach everyone how to deal with you.

Edit - here's a good pages if you want to learn more about it and self diagnose :b

Thanks! Now that I've read this book, I'mwondering if my behavior is BPD or a reaction to being involved with a close friend who is BPD. It's confusing!! This book btw does give lots of credence to the improvement of the BPs condition.
