The author offers a real opportunity to gain an understanding of both the emotional and clinical elements of borderline personality disorder. Her very personal and moving insight into the emotions and responses experienced, demystifies an often-misunderstood disorder.

It was such a pleasure to read this book. It is beautifully written, both the prose and the poetry. This is a first-person account, from someone diagnosed with personality disorder, which offers understanding and hope and which will speak to many people.
Ben Ballin, Education Consultant
What a pleasure it was to read this honest and heartfelt book. The author writes eloquently about what a struggle being a 'borderliner' has been, but importantly makes it possible for a general reader to make a connection, drawing them in with empathy and a degree of understanding. It tells a powerful story very clearly, without self-indulgence (despite being such a personal testimony) and makes for thoughtful and enriching reading.
Dan Knowles, CEO, Oxfordshire Mind
Tracy is a talented writer and poet, and this heartfelt book will be of use and interest to anyone who suffers from, or knows someone who suffers from, personality disorder. The book is honest, engaging, and upbeat - Tracy shows her journey and the steps on the way to a much happier and fulfilled life. The lows are very low, but her strength, talent, and determination shine through, and anyone else feeling low can only be inspired by her story. Highly recommended.
Lucy Spraggan, singer-songwriter
This book is a tremendous insight into the mind of someone with borderline personality disorder; it delves into the dark (and light) truths of the disorder, revealing symptoms that so many encounter but very few discuss.
