… and, not because I am sleepy, although I am a little sat here in mum's garden reading a book. No, it is because I find myself agreeing and identifying with almost everything that I read! The book is Understanding the Borderline Mother by Christine Ann Lawson (not a cheap book - I have it on both my Kindle wishlist and my Non Fiction wishlist for a paperback) and I have it on interlibrary-loan from another county.
I need my own copy of this book, though, because there is so much I want to highlight/underline/annotate. I also need to read even more about BPD because I really do think I have been Borderline myself in the past and have those tendencies in the background even now. According to the book, that is understandable given my childhood and that does not even cover the Dad side of the equation. If only I had discovered this book while I was still seeing my last counsellor. I think it would have been useful to work through it with her.
