Ten Things I Hate About Me by Joe Tracini - Audiobook
My daughter has BPD, thankfully been in therapy specifically for it since 16. She has not self harmed in almost 600 days now and I could not be prouder.
But if there is even the smallest chance that me telling you how I live with me helps you live with you; if it opens up a space for someone, somewhere to be more honest about their mental illness, it will have been worth it. I cried multiple times listening to Joe's story. I have a partner with BPD and whilst no two cases of this illness are the same it has given me some deeper understanding of what he must go through on a daily basis. Writing this book has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done. It had to be dragged into the world, with my condition telling me that every single word, sentence and chapter was terrible and would make strangers walk up to me in the street and punch me in the face. Joe is many things. He is an excellent author, actor, and storyteller. But through this book, Joe is also an incredible advocate for those struggling with addiction and/or their mental health. One of the most important thing he does for us through his book, is normalize talking about suicide, a topic so taboo that those struggling with suicidal ideations often don’t seek help because of it. But I had run out of options. I’d done everything I ‘d been told to do and I still thought about killing myself every day. So I wrote this book to save my life.
