See what others have said about Shari’s BPD articles:
Ms. Schreiber, I just wanted to say thank you - I have been struggling for the last 2 years in a relationship with a female I suspected to have BPD. I have agonized of trying to make sense over what has happened and despite countless hours researching, it was not until I stumbled across your website that I feel I had a real epiphany and some humbling introspection. I really identified with the content in the articles and the description of a people pleaser reflected a large portion of my life that I was previous unaware of. I still have much healing to do but I think now I will finally start to move in a direction to do so. Thank you for posting the resources you have - I feel they will have a very positive influence in my life going forward. Roger T.
Hi Shari, I wanted to express by gratitude for the resources you have posted online. I have been struggling with the recent demise of a relationship with a classic, textbook borderline. It shook me to the core, and I didn't know where to turn for answers. Your articles have had a profound impact on my healing. They spoke to me on so many levels, I feel like they were written for me. Thank you so much for making these articles available. Vincent D.
Shari, I’m a board certified psychiatrist with over 20 years in practice. These articles on relationships with borderlines are insightful, but more importantly, searingly clinically accurate. Congratulations on such terrific work. I plan to use these in my work with patients! Dr. J.

Dear Ms. Schreiber, I am writing to You just to say THANK YOU. I've been reading your articles on your site recently and it helped me a lot after my breakup with my BPD fiancé. I've been in therapy for a while and of course we realized already that I have serious injuries from my boyhood, but now I have a much clearer picture on why I miss her so much and what can be the root cause. I wish you all the best and again thank you very much for your articles. D.B.
Hi Shari, I respect that your practice no longer offers the assistance that I am seeking, but your articles and videos are spectacular. In time, I hope to recover from this agony. Your insights have been a Godsend. All the best always, S.D.
Hi Shari, I don't know how to thank you enough, I came across your website when I was struggling after a breakup with BPD. After reading your material I realized I have rescuer type personality. The things you wrote about BPD they are very true. And your website really helped me in getting better. I am grateful to you. Regards, N.B.
Shari - THANK YOU for your writing. All of your pieces are eye-opening. And that's coming from someone already on his seventh (and by my own choice final) discard cycle. I've read a veritable Library of Congress on relationship dynamics, BPD, NPD, etc, etc, etc, etc. The piece that reveals how it felt for me to go through the first discard cycle was nothing short of cathartic!! https://sharischreiber.com/loving-a-borderline-inside-the-bpd-odyssey/ And your warning at the end: "Even if your Borderline has nagged or pressured you for years to cohabit or marry him/her and it's been totally their idea, you're in for trouble, the moment you give in to their stated wishes or demands. There are no exceptions." made me laugh myself to tears! Lol. This most recent discard was triggered when I relocated with my three kids. The thing that makes it so particularly funny is that discards 4 through 6 were tied to the fact that my attempts to move into the city weren't going fast enough! I appreciate greatly the feeling that I'm not alone, that I get from your writings. Friends and family express sympathy. You express empathy. That warmth helps me. Thanks for sharing your writings online. They're unique, in a sea of diagnoses and debates about BPD. You get to the heart of the matter. You make me feel normal. Sincerely and with many Thanks, Michael R.
