Overview

"Am I losing my mind?"

People with borderline personality disorder (BPD) 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 18 million sufferers of BPD living in America today-each displaying remarkably similar symptoms:

* A shaky sense of identity
* Sudden outbursts of anger
* Oversensitivity to real or imagined rejection
* Brief, turbulent love affairs
* Intense feelings of emptiness
* Eating disorders, drug abuse, and other self-destructive tendencies
* An irrational fear of abandonment and an inability to be alone

For years BPD was difficult to describe, diagnose, and treat. But with this classic guide, Dr. Jerold J. Kreisman and health writer Hal Straus offer much- needed professional advice, helping victims and their families understand and cope with this troubling, shockingly widespread affliction. This completely revised and updated edition includes information on the most up-to-date research that has opened doors to the neurobiological, genetic, and developmental roots of the disorder, as well as the connections between BPD and substance abuse, sexual abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, ADHD, and eating disorders, making it a vital reference for understanding and living with BPD.

    Helpful per therapy doctors

    I am ordering this book for my daughter who has BPD the description I just read fits her to a T. However how do other people handle it who have to be around them 24 7? Anyway her therapist recommended she read this and when she is done I may get it on Nook Book.
    So if a therapist requests it reading for a patient then I would suggest it. My daughter is 37 adopted and we have no idea of history of health issues. But she has battled personality disorders for years. She has threatened suicide so many times that I don't know when the real threat will happen, she says these things in front of her 2 boys. Maybe this will testimonial of sorts will help someone else.

    Excellent Guide

    I first read I HATE YOU, DON'T LEAVE ME when the first edition was published almost 20 years ago. At the time it was the first book on Borderline Personality and it has since become the classic in the field. This completely updated edition (December 2010) is a major improvement on the first, as it includes all of the new advances in medications, genetics, and therapies available. Yet it is still concise (only 250 pages) and an easy read, with many case stories that illustrate the principles involved. Twenty years ago there was little hope for those afflicted with BPD--and their families, spouses, lovers, close friends--now the prognosis is much more optimistic. This book will save you the purchase price many times over, in navigating the mental health field, finding a therapist, deciding on the right medications, and most of all understanding what it's like to live with this illness.
