Flirting with Madness is written under the pen name of Louise Ellison. This is due to the confidentiality of her occupation and to protect the identities of those she is close to. This book is a raw and honest account of her experiences as a sufferer of mental illness, told in a sensitive and wry manner. It focuses upon the relationship between counsellor Maggie and Louise. It was Maggies use of Dialectical Behavioural Therapy that provided Louise with the skills to deal with the possibility of living with BPD in conjunction with OCD and Depression.

Alongside the details of therapy sessions, Flirting with Madness, contains unedited diary entries that provide the reader with honest and accurate thoughts of a mental health sufferer.

Flirting with Madness is the words of a young woman struggling to find her identity in the world and make sense of what is normal whilst trying to stay on the correct side of the borderline.

I hope you enjoy this honest account.
