Description: If you live with borderline personality disorder (BPD), you already know how painful it can be. But take heart – recovery is possible! The Big Book on Borderline Personality Disorder offers advice from someone who’s been there and speaks from inside BPD, with empathy, care and insight. Author Shehrina Rooney shrugs off the stigma, busts myths, and translates the diagnostic criteria into everyday language. She explains the brain science of emotion dysregulation and shares her favourite strategies and skills for weathering the storm.
The Big Book on Borderline Personality Disorder includes special chapters for family and loved ones, men with BPD, and anyone newly diagnosed. The author gives readers strategies for coping with BPD in the workplace and as a parent. In short, this book covers everything you (or your parents or therapist) could possibly want to know about BPD.
Review: This is one of those books that not only helps you understand your own BPD symptoms a little better, but it also goes a little way to helping ease the pain of the disorder as well. While I didn’t rate the helpful/self-guide elements of the book too highly the part about the author’s own life and understanding of BPD was wonderful to read and quite uplifting. If you have been following along with her ‘Recovery Mum’ YouTube channel you will find a lot of what she talks about in this book inside her videos so that is something worth keeping in mind if you have the time to watch them all. If you want to know you are not alone in your BPD struggles this is well worth a read.
Overall Rating: 4/5 -A good book when put into context with all the Youtube videos the author also makes. (and a little scatty without them).
