While the product took a tiny bit longer than I expected to arrive, when it did, I was hooked.
I travelled with this book; both literally and metaphorically. And by journey's end, I was left more learned as well as a less emotionally-charged than when it began.
"I Hate You - Don't Leave Me" details a series of non-fictional accounts of the lives and tribulations of those suffering from BPD as well as those immediately around them. It relates symptoms, experiences, resolutions, coping mechanics, and multiple perspectives of differing scenarios.
The latter portion of the book moves away from interpersonal relationships and discusses therapy and possible roads to recovery/betterment.
Having had two very important individuals in my life (one diagnosed, the other un), this book, I'll admit, armed me with previously unobtained knowledge on the condition. But although it doesn't necessarily play a Sympathy Card in any respect, I couldn't help but feel slightly deflated after reading it -- particularly after the section discussing the BPD sufferer's affinity/attraction to narcissists and abuse.
From what I've read, not just in this book, it seems alluded to that BPD sufferers will be prone reliving trauma, and that the narcissistic personality is like ice-cream to them. I guess it hurts to realise that instead of being supportive and kind, I should've been a narcissistic jerk. But that's a personal experience - you may have another one.
Overall, informative, clear, and concise in its language and format. Highly recommended for those just learning about or somewhat versed in the BPD Experience.
