'Dancing with Dementia' Christine Bryden. It's about her own struggle to live positively in spite of having dementia and the advocacy work she's done to change attitudes. It's very good, I would recommend it.

^Read Reconsidering Dementia By Tom Kitwood - Written in 1997 but not much has changed (unfortunately) but a very interesting look at personhood in Dementia.

The BPD Survival Guide: everything you need to know about living with BPD
good but a bit dull unless you like self help/ psychology books

Skeleton Cupboard- Tanya Byron

Field Of Paper Flowers 03-05-2015 11:07 AM

It's Kind of a Funny Story. It's such an amazing book about mental health (depression, anxiety, ED) and the guy who wrote it (Ned Vizzini) states how it was 85% true.

If people of RYL haven't read it, please do. It's amazing. :)

I've both read it and seen the film (and own both) and yes they are both really good, I recommend them also!

I'm reading about 9 books atm lol, but when I log off here I'm planning to read more of Not Without My Sister for a while. It's a true story about a cult, I'm not far into it but it's already so creepy. Its unbelievable (and frankly plain scary) how one person can hold so much power and influence over so many others.

I'm reading quite a bit if Fyodor Dostoevsky at the moment. Crime and Punishment right now then The Idiot.

I just started True Story by Micheal Finkel. And it's amazing!

nowhereman 11-05-2015 12:56 AM

I'm reading the Father Ted scripts lol. I had it on my wishlist and then I found it in the library so was delighted!!
