Publisher's Summary

Borderline Personality Disorder. "What the hell was that?" raged Rachel Reiland when she read the diagnosis written in her medical chart. As the 29-year-old accountant, wife, and mother of young children would soon discover, it was the diagnosis that finally explained her explosive anger, manipulative behaviors, and self-destructive episodes - including bouts of anorexia, substance abuse, and sexual promiscuity. With astonishing honesty, Reiland's memoir reveals what mental illness feels like and looks like from the inside, and how healing from such a devastating disease is possible through intensive therapy and the support of loved ones.

An Authentic Tale

As a long time psych nurse and someone with a close family member with the same disorder, I can vouch for the reality of this story and the havoc that is reaked upon both the person with the disorder, & the dysfunctional family whose insanity helped create the illness.
I would have like to see it delve more into detail of her family of origin, but that probably is because I'm used to more details in my work. I imagine it's detailed enough for the average reader. I would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a better understanding of borderline personality disorder-especially family members & friends. It's quite informative without being technical. I give it an A++

May be worth the pain.

Where does Get Me Out of Here rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Anyone diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or Post Taurmatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) will identify with the heroine as she struggles first to accept these new labels and then to fully participate in her treatment and recovery. <br/><br/>The book is not particularly well written; not particularly well narrated; but, it is the only book I have found that offers a first-person account of living through the traumas, diagnoses and treatment of BPD & PTSD. It was painful to listen to and yet tremendously helpful in my own efforts to manage, treat and shed mental illness.<br/><br/>If you suffer from mental illness or have a loved one who does AND can bear some graphic descriptions of sexual trauma (these are also very easy to skip) and mediocre writing, this book may be worth the read. Over and over I found myself saying,

profoundly amazing & deeply moving

This has been the most profoundly therapeutic thing I could ever have read in my entire life. Suffering from BPD myself, I have gained extensive understanding of myself, and whilst listening to this audiobook, i have been able to apply the reasonings and advice from the psychiatrist to my own life. Rachel you have changed my life by choosing to share your life story! Deeply moving.

An Educating Listen

Where does Get Me Out of Here rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I think I have learned so much from this book. Though it feels wrong to say that I feel entertained, I did, while learning at the same time. <br/>The time flew listening to the book and I laughed out loud one minute and curled my toes the next. <br/>I work with frail people so this book has been good for my work life too.

What other book might you compare Get Me Out of Here to, and why?

I do not have a comparison... You do ask some silly questions from time to time ;-)<br/>

Have you listened to any of Mazhan Marno’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to Mazhan Marno before.. She did very well!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did have different emotional reactions to the book and it both frightened me and made me laugh.. but even more it gave me food for thought. <br/>It was hard to put down as it moved on so very smoothly.. I think many people may benefit from reading / listening to it.
