Get Me Out of Here: My Recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder


Product Description

Published USA, 2004
Get Me Out of Here
is Rachel Reiland`s story of recovery from borderline personality disorder. She chronicles not only the high drama of her illness, but the small, intimate details of her day-to-day recovery. Early family conflicts, abusive relationships, feelings of insecurity contributing to destructive behaviours such as rage attacks, promiscuity and anorexia are all described, as well as her intensive, four-year course of traditional, psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy, punctuated by several hospitalizations. It is the relationship with her psychiatrist that stands out in this autobiography, as well as Reiland`s loving relationship with her husband and children. Despite disappointments, even from those whom she counted on, survival for Rachel Reiland (a pseudonym) ultimately depended on her individual courage.
