There are so many books and articles written that one person can not read them all. It is hard to pick which ones to read first. This page is intended to use both to discuss books and articles that I have read and found helpful, but I also want to invite you to write about any books or articles that you have found helped you in your journey to understanding and healing.  If you would please give the title, author and if there is a link to the book that would be helpful and tell a little about how it helped you or what you liked about it.

Thank you ~ sweetcardomon

  5. Tears and Healing; The journey to the light after an abusive relationship

    Reviewer: J. Paul Shirley, MSW – Co-Author: Stop Walking on Eggshells Workbook

    I highly recommend Richard’s book, Tears and Healing. His writing is clear, and although his words are written with gentleness, he pulls absolutely no punches about dealing with the hard facts about BPD and its effects on everyone. Some people say there is a reason for the pain we go through having a partner with BPD, and in Richard’s case I agree. He has a gift for lending a helping hand for others trying to walk that painful path. I don’t generally get excited about new books on BPD, but Richard’s left me feeling good & that’s a rare gift for a writer to have.

    Reviewer: Sam Vaknin – Author: Malignant Self Love – Narcissism Revisited

    There are bookshelves upon bookshelves of professional, scholarly, and utterly inaccessible literature about abusive relationships. Those who need it the most – the traumatized victims – are locked out by the jargon and the lack of practical advice. Recently, survivors and victims have taken matters into their own hands and have published their own books, replete with first hand experiences and tips. Tears and Healing is a fine specimen of such writing: sensitive, attuned to the emotional and pragmatic needs of the survivors, both deep and accessible, a helpful guide to the traumatic aftermath of abuse.

    Reviewer: Randi Kreger – Coauthor: Stop Walking on Eggshells and the Stop Walking on Eggshells Workbook; Owner: .

    In Tears and Healing, Richard21CP takes us along on his personal journey from his “lightbulb experience” to making painful decisions about his marriage to a woman with borderline personality disorder. It takes courage for non-BP partners to understand and take responsibility for their own role in the “borderline dance,” and even more courage to write about it. Richard has done both.

    Reviewer: Darla Boughton, Manager of Narcissistic Personality Disorder/Psychopath forums(4000+ members)

    Tears and Healing is a must read for anyone involved in a devastating relationship with a personality disordered partner. It is a must-have, top-notch, first-aid kit to understanding the emotional devastation such a relationship causes. The author reveals his first-hand experience and knowledge. Let Richard’s words reveal how to reclaim your sanity in an insane interaction with a disordered partner.
