Publisher's Summary

Between 6 and 10 million people in the US suffer from borderline personality disorder. This book teaches adult children how to overcome the devastating effects of growing up with a parent who suffers from BPD.
Although relatively common, borderline personality disorder (BPD) is often overlooked or misdiagnosed by therapists and clinicians and denied by those who suffer from it. If you were raised by a BPD parent, your childhood was a volatile and painful time. This book, the first written specifically for children of borderline parents, offers step-by-step guidance to understanding and overcoming the lasting effects of being raised by a person suffering from this disorder.
Discover specific coping strategies for dealing with issues common to children of borderline parents - low self-esteem, lack of trust, guilt, and hypersensitivity - and make the major decision whether to confront your parent about his or her condition.

complete validation of what I only suspected !

To give a fair review I must listen again and give the information within it time to settle in. Otherwise, I run the risk of sounding like an infatuated school girl.
