Description

[This] is me offering hope, if that is what is needed, whether you suffer from borderline personality disorder or care for someone who does. It is me making an effort to raise awareness of this very misunderstood mental illness.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is often considered difficult, if not impossible to treat by medical professionals. This can make the situation seem hopeless to those who are diagnosed with BPD. Based on her own experience of living with BPD, Tracy Barker shares how she has learned to manage the condition and live a full life.

With poetry used to capture her lowest moments, this book gives an unfiltered look into life with BPD. Tracy shares how she has gone from being in full-time therapy to happily married, offering hope to those living with BPD, and providing awareness of the condition to their families and friends.
