Handle with Care: Living and Coping with Borderline Personality Disorder

Handle with Care: Living and Coping with Borderline Personality Disorder

by Elyse Brouhard Author

There's so much stigma around Borderline Personality Disorder but so little understanding. Almost every book about it is written for non-BPD family members, partners, and therapists. This zine is written for people with BPD by someone who has the diagnosis herself and truly gets it. Elyse shares her own story, along with what she has learned along the way about symptoms, diagnosis, healthy and unhealthy coping, maintaining relationships, friendships, religion, addiction, and most of all developing a good relationship with your own body and mind. She also offers some good advice for people whose loved ones have BPD and for therapists with BPD clients.

The brutal honesty of Elyse's writing moved me. It was written in an easy, every day conversational tone and yet had the intelligence and knowledge of someone who works in the mental health field. It left me with with real hope for my loved one who has BPD.
