Borderline Personality Disorder. "What the hell was that?" raged Rachel Reiland when she read the diagnosis written in her medical chart. As the 29-year-old accountant, wife, and mother of young children would soon discover, it was the diagnosis that finally explained her explosive anger, manipulative behaviors, and self-destructive episodes - including bouts of anorexia, substance abuse, and sexual promiscuity. With astonishing honesty, Reiland's memoir reveals what mental illness feels like and looks like from the inside, and how healing from such a devastating disease is possible through intensive therapy and the support of loved ones.

An Educating Listen
I think I have learned so much from this book. Though it feels wrong to say that I feel entertained, I did, while learning at the same time.
The time flew listening to the book and I laughed out loud one minute and curled my toes the next.
I work with frail people so this book has been good for my work life too.
I do not have a comparison... You do ask some silly questions from time to time ;-)
I have not listened to Mazhan Marno before.. She did very well!
I did have different emotional reactions to the book and it both frightened me and made me laugh.. but even more it gave me food for thought.
It was hard to put down as it moved on so very smoothly.. I think many people may benefit from reading / listening to it.
