Additional, Adjunctive Help for Non-Borderlines

Whether you've done Integrated Recovery work with me or not, you may find these additional resources helpful. The message boards listed below are free blog sites where members share their BPD struggles and receive empathic peer support, encouragement and suggestions from each other. I haven't read the books listed below (except for Lawson's), but a few clients have found them useful. The songs are mostly 'oldies' you might relate to, if you've had your world turned upside-down by a Borderline (or just listen to 'em for fun).

If you've found the courage to break away from someone with BPD, and you're being bombarded with text messages and phone calls that feel crazy-making, shaming, guilting, cajoling/seducing--but they're pleading with you to return, make sure you read this psycho-woman phone message log (thanks to Dr. Tara), to help you maintain NO CONTACT.

 I apologize if some of these links to songs don't open. I'm hoping to rectify this soon, by giving you the music without going through YouTube. I'm a bit of a techno-bimbo, so you'll just have to bear with me for awhile. Thanks!
