It’s not that unusual to grow up in a dysfunctional family, many people do and emerge none the worse for wear, but for some individuals, like me, our minds go down different paths, twisting and bending back on ourselves like a tangled mess of fishing worms. Our vision of the world becomes narrow, discolored, and shattered, and what we hear sounds like pounding drums of war causing us to feel constantly threatened as well as dispensable.I developed a borderline personality at a very early age, but although I was also bipolar, I had some freakingly amazing and unhealthy coping skills, which hid the real me and my moods from anyone with whom I interacted.

Therefore I wasn’t diagnosed with either condition until I was in my 50’s. Inevitably the course of nature finally summoned the perfect storm, and everything came crashing down coming within a whisper of taking my life with it.The fight back to normalcy has taken every inch of will I can access, and has taken years to establish stability in my reactions to the world and positively reinvent the way I see myself.

But with true grit, forgiveness and a dash of curiosity about what lies around the next corner, I have survived and fought my way back from the deadly abyss which called relentlessly to me for so long.This story is an autobiography, and as such is confined to the events in my life, but it goes further to provide a summary of values and behaviors which have a more universal application for those who desire to resolve habits of thinking like the damned. If you are someone with one of these mental conditions, or care about someone with one and would like to understand them better, this book is for you.Actually, this book is for everyone, because with the broken situation of mental health care, and the cost it exacts from our communities, we cannot afford to keep turning away, or sweeping it under the rug.

We need to find solutions, and I hope my candor will provide even a tiny bit of the necessary insight and shed light on a place to start.
