About this deal

This book is largely made up of disparate anecdotes of patients that the author has either treated, or otherwise come across.

When there is no excuse for sabotage, they make one up, intentionally provoking problems and creating self-fulfilling prophecies. I probably would not reccomend the book as a whole to patients for the above mentioned reasons, but definitely copy one of the case studies. Moreover, you will experience a marked sense of relief that you are not to blame for their mood swings and often hurtful behavior. This chapter in particular reads like an undergraduate summary of some lecture slides, for all the insight and detail it shows.Did this person go from bubbly to angry to sad and back in a matter of hours, entrapping you on an emotional roller coaster, where you were loved one day and despised the next? Instead of perceiving these nuances, a person with BPD might perceive that relationship cues are either “black and white,” “right or wrong,” and “all or nothing. He must accept, without being excused or protected, the real consequences of his actions, even though initially he may be powerless to alter them. Such a person may, for example, be engaged to be married to one person and simultaneously be maintaining sexual relationships with two or three others.

Too much emphasis on irrelevant political topics like Climate Change and Covid-19, it's supposed to be about codependency and that part is fine but the rest totally spoils it. People with bpd are HIGHLY capable of empathy because their feelings are heightened—they feel hurt so viscerally. How can it be that so many people are affected by such an unhealthy pattern that it has begun to appear almost normal? This is an out-of-date book written by a sexist old man and I can’t believe this is considered among the best in BPD literature. You may save this person years of being shuffled around the medical system by letting them know that the problem might be BPD, so that they can pass the information along to those who can help.He took the easy road and wrote bpd off as “a diagnosis for a bad person”, like the child he seems to be. One study published in Frontiers in Psychiatry found that patients experienced significant improvement across various metrics after receiving internet-based treatment for BPD. The person may exhibit a patchy job history, with frequent changes due to "personality conflicts" or disruption of previously comfortable routines. Moreover, the person who [has] neglect in his background is always restless and anxious because he cannot obtain emotional satisfaction.

Did your partner waver unpredictably between possessively clinging and hurtfully pushing you away, leaving you utterly confused? They begin to sabotage the relationship, blowing miniscule events and problems out of proportion, blaming you for things when you did nothing wrong, giving you contradictory messages, and leaving you in a no-win situation where you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. So take it from someone who's been working an inpatient psychiatric unit for going on 12 years and wishes they had read this book when they started out, everything in it is spot on. Mental health issues are explored in a gentle, understandable way to make it easy for non-professionals to read.Yet, it is crucial for both our own sake, as well as that of our partner, to recognize when such a problem exists.
