about

With astonishing honesty, this memoir reveals what mental illness looks and feels like from the inside, and how healing from borderline personality disorder is possible through intensive therapy and the support of loved ones.

With astonishing honesty, this memoir, Get Me Out of Here, reveals what mental illness looks and feels like from the inside, and how healing from borderline personality disorder is possible through intensive therapy and the support of loved ones. A mother, wife, and working professional, Reiland was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder at the age of 29--a diagnosis that finally explained her explosive anger, manipulative behaviors, and self-destructive episodes including bouts of anorexia, substance abuse, and promiscuity. A truly riveting read with a hopeful message.Excerpt: "My hidden secrets were not well-concealed. The psychological profile had been right as had the books on BPD. I was manipulative, desperately clinging and prone to tantrums, explosiveness, and frantic acts of desperation when I did not feel the intimacy connection was strong enough. The tough chick loner act of self-reliance was a complete facade."
Rachel Reiland is a wife, mother of three, accountant, and writer living in the Midwest. Through a combination of psychotherapy and spirituality, she has managed to overcome anorexia and borderline personality disorder, a shadowy and often misunderstood form of mental illness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down! From the first few pages I was hooked on this book. Ms. Reiland's candid account of her experience with BPD is informative, shocking and triumphant. I would imagine that this book helped her in her very long healing process. She does an excellent job of putting her thoughts and emotions down on paper so the reader can get a true feel for what she is experiencing. I felt her anger, her regret, her shame, her brief moments of triumph and finally her fear of succeeding in overcoming BPD. I cried at many parts in the book and found myself becoming angry with her for subjecting her friends and family to so much pain and hurt. But as she continues her therapy sessions, you start to understand what she is going through and how hard it must be. I applaud her recovery as it is obviously something that took great effort from her, her therapist and her husband who stood by her through good times and bad. Overall it's an excellent read.
