How a suicidal girl grew up to lead others out of the agony of borderline personality disorder and into productive lives.

Dr. Marcia Linehan, developer of Dialectic Behavior Therapy, spent 26 months in a mental hospital -- most of the time in a ward for the very seriously disturbed. A religious experience helped heal her -- and then she went on to analyze both her own mental illness and the religious experience, understand the step-by-step process of self-destructive thoughts, and devise ways to break the cycle.

She has saved a lot of people's lives, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy works for many kinds of pain, not just extreme mental illness. I use her techniques on myself; they help with PTSD and depression -- with any self-destructive cycle of pain.
