I Hate You - Don't Leave Me

| | Comments (0)

A little while back I finished reading "I Hate You - Don't Leave Me" by Jerold Kreisman and Hal Straus.  This was a book Fiona lent us to help us understand her Borderline Personality Disorder.

It was an engaging read, and made all the more personal by her highlighting of a lot of passages - it was like reading her mind in a lot of ways.  One thing that stood out for me (although I don't know how much to Fiona - it wasn't underlined) was a description of BPD as being like emotional third degree burns - where even the slightest touch can cause agony.  But yeah, not a fun mental disorder to live with.

Definitely recommended if you know anyone with BPD.
