Book Review – Soothe Yourself: Learning Emotional Self-Regulation


Full title:  “Soothe Yourself: Learning Emotional Self-Regulation: For People with Anxiety, Depression, NPD, BPD, IED, SPD, Bipolar, ADHD, ASPD, AVPD, and ASD (Transcend Mediocrity Book 88)” Kindle Edition

I have this book on Kindle and audiobook download.  I have just read the Kindle version.  It is really good.  It talks a lot about where emotional self-dysregulation comes from and provides some help on the subject.  I would have liked for it to provide a few more examples, such as some relaxation exercises, but other than that, this is an excellent book.  I recommend it to anyone with BPD or any of the other conditions listed.

There is a link at the end of the book to the author’s publication company.  It does not work.

I really liked some of the information about where self-dysregulation comes from, and the tips provided.  I’m going to check out the audiobook version and do a review on it next.  Stay tuned for that!  Till next time,

— Joyce.

Starting Therapy


BPD and Me

The last time I spoke to you, I had found a therapist who was actually open to the idea of working with someone who has BPD. I’ve now had my first session and it was refreshing! The ideas that she suggests sound great and she really makes me view my thoughts in a different light, a better, clearer, light. Yes, it is only early days but I mentioned that as time goes on, I seem to only recall negative events in my life or big events, not the smaller, happier memories like seeing Father Christmas or playing in the garden. She’s suggested that we make a timeline; she will ask questions to prompt my memory and then I can have it to look back on.

Again, early days, but it’s so nice to know that I will be meeting regularly with someone, I can talk about my week, unpick it…

Choosing a Life Worth Living..BPD is NOT a Death Sentence.


301.83

I know how being diagnosed with borderline personailty disorder can be perceived as a death sentence. I’m living proof that it doesn’t have to be.  Recently, I was listening to Marsha Lineham’s youtube videos on BPD, and one story in particular stood out to me.  She talked about a client she was treating who was struggling with suicide ideation/attemps.  She asked the girls parents if they wanted to hospitalize her, lock her up and risk her making another suicide attempt, or if they wanted to try giving her the opportunity to create a life worth living through DBT.  There is one girl in my DBT group who has borderline personality as well.  Every time she speaks, I feel like im listening to myself a year ago.  Its so hard for me not to jump out of my chair and tell her IT DOES GET BETTER. I know it can, because…
