Sometimes I Act Crazy: Living with Borderline Personality Disorder is a source of hope, expert advice, and guidance for people with borderline personality disorder and those who love them.

  •  Do you experience frightening, often violent mood swings that make you fear for your sanity?
  •  Are you often depressed?
  •  Do you engage in self-destructive behaviors such as drug or alcohol abuse, anorexia, compulsive eating, self-cutting, and hair pulling?
  •  Do you feel empty inside, or as if you don’t know who you are?
  •  Do you dread being alone and fear abandonment?
  •  Do you have trouble finishing projects, keeping a job, or forming lasting relationships?

If you or someone you love answered yes to the majority of these questions, there’s a good chance that you or that person suffers from borderline personality disorder, a commonly misunderstood and misdiagnosed psychological problem afflicting tens of millions of people. Princess Diana was one of the most well-known BPD sufferers.

The authors wrote one of the first books on BPD: I Hate You, Don’t Leave Me.
