"This engaging memoir illuminates the experience of living with borderline personality disorder, a mental illness that is often misunderstood.

The author shares her painful struggles with depression, drug addiction, self-harm and unstable relationships that ultimately lead to her late diagnosis with borderline personality disorder. Through her pursuit of dialectical behavior therapy, Buddhist spirituality and adventures in online dating, she reclaims life and works towards recovery on her own terms."
