The Demise of Mildred
A forensic biography of my severely abusive Borderline Personality Disorder mother
Taken together, the multiple volumes of “The Demise of Mildred” present what is probably the most comprehensive case study of a severely abusive Borderline Personality Disorder mother ever written. This is not any kind of a ‘How To’ series. It is a child abuse survivor’s clear disclosure of her perpetrator’s madness as her voice speaks within Mildred’s own words as they were preserved until her death in 2003.
The fascinating observations Linda makes about her mother aim a sparkling light into the deepest crevices of how the matrix of her troubled BPD-mother’s brain-mind worked to create a living hell for her daughter and a rollicking unstable life for her family. The breadth of this intriguing story carries its readers on a chaotic ride as Mildred catapults her family from suburban Los Angeles in 1957 through years of an Alaskan mountainside homesteading saga that was all directly tied to the unmet needs of a woman who found no rest from her disorder in her lifetime.
This daring and original work is an insightful and compassionate presentation of severe infant-child abuse, Borderline Personality Disorder, and the origins of both. It also shows how the telling of a parent’s story paves the way for the healing of our own. It is an authentic study of one of the most troubling, hidden and mysterious mental illnesses known to humanity as it highlights how dangerous to her offspring a BPD mother can be.
