Talking About BPD
A Stigma-Free Guide to Living a Calmer, Happier Life with Borderline Personality Disorder
'I am Rosie. I have BPD. I am not an attention-seeker, manipulative, dangerous, hopeless, unlovable, "broken", "difficult to reach" or "unwilling to engage". I am caring, creative, courageous, determined, full of life and love.'
Talking About BPD is a positive, stigma-free guide to life with borderline personality disorder (BPD) from award-winning blogger Rosie Cappuccino.
Addressing what BPD is, the journey to diagnosis and available treatments, Rosie offers advice on life with BPD and shares practical tips and DBT-based techniques for coping day to day. Topics such as how to talk about BPD to those around you, managing relationships and self-harm are also explored. Throughout, Rosie shares her own experiences and works to dispel stigma and challenge the stereotypes often associated with the disorder.
This much-needed, hopeful guide will offer support, understanding, validation and empowerment for all living with BPD, as well as those who support them.
