Borderline Personality Disorder Survival Pack

Version: 3.0.5

Does your life look like this?

I lived with a woman with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) for the better part of six years. Through much blood, sweat, and frustration, I managed to keep her, step children and myself together as a family, kept myself from going insane, and helped us both go down the path of individual and mutual recovery.

At the same time, I carefully researched the prognosis of the disorder, the affect of living with someone with had on me, and have compiled resources that will aid others in any future they wish to lead with those afflicted with this disorder.

No matter which path is for you, this collection of books will give you a foundation to figure out just what sort of situation you find yourself in, how to cope with it, how to get your partner the help he/she needs (IF they will cooperate!) and finally, how to protect yourself from further mental harm.

Take note that I have read and recommend everyone of these books.

Check out the BPD Profiler Test, designed by a professional criminal profiler.
