He diagnosed her condition as Borderline Personality Disorder and over the next few years she saw him regularly and frequently in therapy sessions which explored her largely suppressed unpleasant experiences as a child. Gradually she came to realize, accept and transcend those experiences. This was not accomplished without enormous patience on the part of the therapist, perseverance on the part of Rachel and almost saintliness on the part of the husband.
Nor was it accomplished without further hospitalizations.
However, this compelling story, which at times reduced this reviewer to tears, does have a very happy ending. Borderline Personality Disorder is a surprisingly common phenomenon.
It is found in about one to two percent of the population. Rachel displayed many if not all of the usual symptoms: feelings of being abandoned, intense but often very unstable relationships, a poor self-image, destructive behavior drugs, alcohol, sexual promiscuity , suicidal tendencies, powerful mood swings, feelings of meaninglessness, uncontrollable anger, and the fragmentation of aspects of the personality. What is frightening about BPD is that between a fifth and a quarter of the prison population suffers from it.
Unfortunately, nearly ten percent of BPD sufferers successfully commit suicide while few of the remaining ninety percent are helped to genuinely leave it behind. This book is a moving testament to what can be achieved given the right level of support.

But within her counselling, it covered many aspects, such as her childhood. It would appear that she was ok and that she suddenly struck down with a very severe case.
What I like about it? I felt for Rachel. I understood what she was going through and that is not just because I am a sufferer — I think she was able to show her feelings and use fantastic dialogue to explain the mental disturbances that she had, plus the recovery process and time lines.
She also showed very well, the family disruption that she caused and the effects it had on her family.
This was very sad. She also showed the kindness of the doctor, but she certainly bigged him up too much and her poor husband took a back seat. Nevertheless, I could not put the book down, as I was so interested in it. I may not have liked Rachel too much, but I did have empathy for her and I did learn a lot and it made me feel better that I am not so bad and also that BPD is a BIG umbrella in which to put a huge range of people with a huge range of symptoms and realities.
She said herself that she was on auto pilot and under false personality and smiles most of the time, but did not show a great deal of niceness about her and her feelings towards her children or indeed her husband.
