I'm Not Supposed to Be Here: My Recovery from Borderline Per
on 30 December 2004
Rachel's story of both her life living with borderline personality disorder (BPD), and her recovery from the disorder, is an extremely poignant one. This is one of the most emotionally intense and draining books I have ever read, but I am honoured to have had the opportunity to read about Rachel's life. For people both with and without BPD, this book is an incredible journey and anyone reading it may find themselves holding back the tears. For people with BPD, this book is a chance to discover that you are not alone (although please be aware that the book may be "triggering" to some people). For people without BPD, this book is a chance to discover what it is really like to live life with such a profoundly emotionally, socially and even physically debilitating disorder. I strongly recommend reading this book.
