Description: People with Borderline Personality Disorder experience such violent and frightening mood swings that they often fear for their sanity. They can be euphoric one moment, despairing and depressed the next. There are an estimated 10 million sufferers of BPD living in America today — each displaying remarkably similar symptoms like a shaky sense of identity, sudden violent outbursts, oversensitivity to real or imagined rejection, brief, turbulent love affairs, frequent periods of intense depression & inability to be alone For years BPD was difficult to describe, diagnose, and treat. But now, for the first time, Dr. Jerold J. Kreismanand health writer Hal Straus offer much-needed professional advice, helping victims and their families to understand and cope with this troubling, shockingly widespread affliction.
Review: While I have to say the title of the book did make me smile (a play on words of the symptom of Fear of Abandonment) the rest of the book did not. In fact, I would go as far as to say it was triggering AF! There is some knowledge and understanding to be found inside its pages for sure and you could even call it a comprehensive introduction to borderline personality disorder, but so much of the information within this book is outdated. Regardless of it being outdated the information offered is wrapped inside some VERY triggering language especially about childhood trauma. Unless you are maybe looking up about BPD for someone you know I simply can’t recommend this book at all.
Overall Rating: 2/5: Its basic information is outdated and at worse the book is often triggering.
