Overview

Through daily readings and affirmations, the reader is led into an inspirational, experiential journey as seen through the eyes of a partner to someone suffering with borderline personality disorder. Breaking Free from Boomerang Love progresses from the silent withdrawals to the exploding rages of the BPD, from the fearful, walking-on-eggshells to the ultimate healing and empowerment of the partner. The message is applicable to all relationships -- lovers, family members, friends and work associates.

Breaking Free from Boomerang Love describes how the partner of the borderline personality disordered person repeatedly leaves the relationship, only to return to it, again and again, desperately trying to fix an illness they don't even know the name of -- and which only the BPD can fix, with professional mental health help.

Many books have been written by mental health professionals about borderline personality disorder. Boomerang Love is the first ever written by a partner about the disorder and the experience of living with it.

    This Book Saved My Life!

    I couldn't disagree more with Dionysus. Perhaps himself a borderline who was given the book by his partner?
    I gave it to my ex husband in hopes that he would 'change'. I was still so naive! As is typical, he denied any resemblance to himself in the book. However, I could have sworn the author lived in my closet and had eavesdropped for 34 years!
    I struggled for many years living with a man who embodied the Borderline traits. I discovered "Breaking Free from Borderline Love" at the same time my ex husband was diagnosed with BPD. It was as though the story of my life came alive in the pages of her book! This book was literally #72 in my quest to understand what I was coping with! I cannot recommend it enough. I personally know many women in my support group who have also benefited from Ms. Melville's 'On the Job' training. I recall that after finishing the book, a complete feeling of relief swept over me. All of these years I didn't understand what I lived with. Now, within the pages of one book was a clear pattern that I could discern. The author's advice on leaving is also excellent. She enabled me to take that final step without guilt and certainly less trauma. If you are lost in the maze of crazy making that a borderline can bring to your world, please order this book! You will find peace and excellent advice. In addition to my recommendation, readers might check the Amazon site, for 24 reviews by customers who praise Boomerang Love.

    Can the cartoons.

    Although the concept of a book meant to help people get over relationships with people who have borderline personality disorder was good, this book went about it all wrong. Rather than being truly informative, it was filled with useless information I already knew. Furthermore, over half the book was taken up by irrelevant, boring cartoons and monotonous prayers. Although it might be great for a little old church lady, this book is of little value to men or younger generations. Considering most borderlines are women who abuse men, this is quite a shortcoming. Your money would be better spent on a bottle of vodka.
