BOOK REVIEW – “My Alien Self: My Journey Back to Me” by Amanda Green

book with quill pen

Amanda Green has had quite an interesting life to say the least.  She has traveled all over the world, doing many different kinds of jobs.  But there is something different about her compared to other people, even people in her own family.  Is she like her Schizophrenic mother?  Amanda worries about this often.

Finally, she is diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and things start to make sense.  At first, she goes back and forth between accepting it and rejecting and fearing it.  But slowly she accepts it and works on overcoming it, with some help from doctors and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, she finds out that she can cope with life a lot better than she thought she ever could.

As she begins writing the story of her life, she uncovers parts of her past that were hidden, even to herself.

She searches for solutions – drugs, therapy, men?  What is the answer to all of her problems?

Join Amanda on her journey from her “alien self” to her true self.
