My Self, The Enemy follows the story of Melanie, an isolated young woman struggling to cope with a world she does not understand and people she cannot relate to. As we experience life through Melanies eyes, we feel first hand the power of her insecurities.

This book provides a valuable insight into the various difficulties associated with mental illness in general and borderline personality disorder in particular, and the subsequent problems associated with coping with diagnosis. If you are able to relate to her emotional plight, then you are not alone.

  1. R.L. Johnson (verified owner)

    My Self, the Enemy is a very moving novel. It’s a sort of cross between Bridget Jones’s Diary and Girl, Interrupted. I highly recommend it.
