The Buddha and the Borderline: My Recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder through Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Buddhism, and Online Dating by Kiera Van Gelder

Kiera Van Gelders first suicide attempt at the age of twelve marked the onset of her struggles with drug addiction, depression, post-traumatic stress, self-harm, and chaotic romantic relationships-all of which eventually led to doctors belated diagnosis of borderline personality disorder twenty years later.

The Buddha and the Borderline is a window into this mysterious and debilitating condition, an unblinking portrayal of one womans fight against the emotional devastation of borderline personality disorder. This haunting, intimate memoir chronicles both the devastating period that led to Kieras eventual diagnosis and her inspirational recovery through therapy, Buddhist spirituality, and a few online dates gone wrong. Kieras story sheds light on the private struggle to transform suffering into compassion for herself and others, and is essential reading for all seeking to understand what it truly means to recover and reclaim the desire to live.

Compared to mental health issues like depression and anxiety, awareness of borderline personality disorder BPD is low and, as a result, stigma is rife. In a bid to reduce some of the stigma and increase understanding around BPD, we asked several people who live with it what they want others to know. And that can feel quite invalidating. A big misconception around BPD is that people choose to act this way. Those intense emotions can last from a few hours to a few days — and can fluctuate very quickly. In some cases, people with BPD might experience paranoia or dissociation, where they feel disconnected from the world.

In Insight

Lacking emotional skin, they feel agony at the slightest touch or movement. Like other personality disorders, BPD is a long-term pattern of behavior that begins during adolescence or early adulthood. But what makes BPD unique from other personality disorders is that emotional, interpersonal, self, behavioral and cognitive dysregulation. What does that mean? The possibility of facing separation or rejection can lead to self-destructive behaviors, self-harm or suicidal thinking. If they feel a lack of meaningful relationships and support, it damages their self-image.
