 Stop Walking on Egg Shells Book Review

About the Book: Do you feel manipulated, controlled, or lied to? Are you the focus of intense, violent, and irrational rages? Do you feel you are 'walking on eggshells' to avoid the next confrontation? 

If the answer is 'yes,' someone you care about may have borderline personality disorder (BPD). Stop Walking on Eggshells has already helped nearly half a million people with friends and family members suffering from BPD understand this destructive disorder, set boundaries, and help their loved ones stop relying on dangerous BPD behaviors. This fully revised edition has been updated with the very latest BPD research and includes coping and communication skills you can use to stabilize your relationship with the BPD sufferer in your life. 
    This compassionate guide will enable you to: 
  • Make sense out of the chaos
  • Stand up for yourself and assert your needs
  • Defuse arguments and conflicts
  • Protect yourself and others from violent behavior

Our Take:  Our society doesn't have a good outlook on mental illness and personality disorders.  Psychiatry in general gets a lot of heat from those that don't understand or believe in it.  The plain and simple fact is that not everyone is wired the same and that can be hard for some people to understand, but that doesn't make it any less real. 

Borderline Personality Disorder was finally defined in 1980 as a personality disorder, but wasn't officially recognized until 1994.  Since that time many professionals have come on board with this clearly real issue, but many still have not.  Therapy is the best route for someone with BPD, but even that is hit and miss.  The best thing to do is to turn to reading and understanding of the disorder.

This book, Stop Walking on Egg Shells, is a best selling opus about how to manage your life when someone that you love and care about has Borderline Personality Disorder.   What is best about this book is how theraputic it can be.  In a situation like this the loved one of someone with BPD can often feel victimized, but to read about these common situations may provide some level of comfort, to know that its not you, but rather the BPD that is the issue.  The book is well layed-out and well written, so that it doesn't get too thick.  It provides some great advice and coping mechanisms on how to set boundries with your loved one. 

If you know someone with Borderline Personality Disorder take is seriously.  Its not something that will just go away or that you can medicate into submission.   Books like this one are invaluable.  We highly recommend it.
