I am current reading "Get Me Out of Here - My recovery from borderline Personality Disorder" by Rachel Reiland. 

I have also read "Waking Up - Climbing through the darkness" by Terry Wise (detailing her su attempt and recovery).

What I love about both books is they include a tremendous amount of the conversations that happen within the therapy sessions. Does anyone have any other books that also do that?

Loud in the House of Myself by Stacy Pershall

Also the two below are from the T's perspective so perhaps a bit more triggering, but still very caring:

Love's Executioner by Irvin Yalom

The Skeleton Cupboard by Tanya Byron  

Yes thank you Ellie!  I remember you saying that first one but our library didn't have it. 

Edited - just checked and our public library doesn't have the other two, either!  Bummer.

Tenacious does any library in your area have those books because if they do then your library could request them for you. Could be worth a try.

This one may have already been mentioned, "The Body Keeps the Score" by Bessel Van Der Kolk MD.

eye opening for sure

"Get Me Out of Here" by Rachel Reiland is fantastic ... it does include stuff about her sessions, but just, beyond that...it's fantastic

TMC~ I love your quotes.

"Rising Strong" by Bren'e Brown is decent, and I just loved "Wild" both the book and the movie.

I love the book "The last asylum" by Barbara Taylor. It is mostly about the history of asylums in England but it also talks a lot about her own struggles and her 20+ year analysis.
