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.
Here's what the reviews says in case you are wondering whether this book is for you...

I hope you find this book comforting and helpful. Writing is was an act of self-affirmation to be honest and I hope reading it gives you as much confidence as writing it gave me.
