    Ten years ago I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder Since then, I have often been in and out of therapy I ve tried various techniques to regulate my moods What worked best for me, however, were words Words are important to me, and by reading and learning about BPD, I was able to articulate my feelings.I ve read many books on the subject, pr

    I mthan a little embarrassed to admit that I ve known Stacy for 10 years and only just finished reading her lovely memoir yesterday My delay in reading her work is no indicator of its quality just a reflection of my own laziness and terrible reading habits That said, it was such a pleasure to read the final product after following Stacy s journey to get this me

    My favorite thing about Loud in the House of Myself was the title When I first saw this book, I knew I would love it A memoir on mental illness, by a strange girl, with such a good title I was eager to get my hands on it Unfortunately, I didn t enjoy this book very much and honestly found it a bit annoying Memoirists don t have the luxury of manufacturing fascinat

    I don t need to write my autobiography I just read it Sure, there are some differences from my own story, but it hits so close as to be chilling I, like the author, found my way via tattoos and DBT I m not sure how someone without at least one the diagnoses would see the book as what makes the book good are the moments I found myself reading exactly what I would do, how I wou
