In Search of the Lost Self: How to Survive and Thrive with Borderline Personality Disorder

by Lawrence JW Cooper
Twenty years ago while I was in the throes of depression, I received a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). I was an Educational Psychologist with a Masters in Psychology, and yet, I had never heard of BPD. Not until recently, when I started doing a series of blogs on BPD, have I really come to understand it. I now pat myself on the back for not only surviving, but now thriving, with this disorder. I will always live with some of the symptoms that I will describe in this book, but I have not only discovered how to manage them, but I now realize that I have actually grown into the person I am because of them. I am now living the life I truly love living. In this book I want to let you know what living with BPD is like and perhaps give you a few hints on how to manage it.
