HOUSTON, Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Meehl Foundation is offering a new e-book, now available for free download, that serves as a guidebook for people with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder.
"Borderline Personality Disorder: Breaking the Cycle of Suffering" was designed to empower readers to cope with the symptoms of BPD until they could reach a 90 day DBT residential program.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, BPD is a "serious mental illness marked by unstable moods, behavior, and relationships." Added to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, Third Edition (DSM-III) in 1980, the disease is marked by symptoms such as problems with regulating emotions and thoughts, impulsive and reckless behavior and unstable relationships with other people.
By following the wisdom of the Meehl Foundation's book, those who have been diagnosed with BPD will be learn to push past triggers that once put them out of their emotional minds; eliminate self-doubt, uncertainty and indecisiveness; change irrational beliefs about people's motives toward them; take control with calm and confidence; feel more comfortable and relaxed in social situations; achieve life goals and much more.
"You will see a measurable increase in your distress tolerance level in less than 90 days and your Self-Confidence will continue to soar until you are unstoppable," said Debra Meehl, President of the Meehl Foundation and co-author of "Borderline Personality Disorder: Breaking the Cycle of Suffering." "Our book offers hope to anyone whose life has been defined by the debilitating emotional distress that is a constant companion to those who haven't yet triumphed over BPD. We can help you."
