Borderline Beautiful

In this book Jason steps outside his usual domain of technology and the future to write a novel that explores love, family, hope and borderline personality disorder.

Felicia sits on stage among a group of honorees awaiting her turn to accept a national award for excellence in predictive analytics. To the audience, she appears calm and composed but inside she’s overwhelmed by a tidal wave of debilitating anxiety. Borderline personality disorder threatens once again to derail her life as she struggles to keep the moment from unraveling.

 

Love, family and hope converge and are about to stir her emotionally constrained life to its core when she meets a war vet and an abused teenage girl she feels she's destined to save. Felicia faces the biggest challenges yet in her quest to live free of the mind demons that have haunted her since childhood.

Dr. Jason Ohler takes a complex, often misunderstood and stigmatized mental health diagnosis and gives it a compassionate and human treatment. A moving and insightful read.

- James H. Gregory II MSW, Licsw, User Friendly Therapy

 

An absolute great read… Dr. Ohler’s novel offers fascinating insight into the inner experience, intense emotions and attachment challenges of a woman with borderline personality traits.

- Susan Omer, LCSW, Director, Petersburg Mental Health Services

BIG IDEAS CHANGE EVERYTHING

"Jason has the amazing ability to see the big picture... 

insightful, inspiring, humorous, practical, and straight-forward ..."

- From the Introduction by Yong Zhao

With Jason's latest book you hop on board the “technology-roller-coaster-without-brakes” and tour the future, learning how to balance the two worlds in which we now live: real life and the immersive reality on the other end of our smart devices.

BIG IDEAS lays out sensible pathways for considering new perspectives about our digital lifestyles. It tells stories of the future that are rooted in the past, and imbued with the wisdom gleaned from the author’s 35 years of innovation.

"I know only one thing for certain about the technologies that await us in the future: we will find ways to tell stories with them. Let's tell stories that are inspiring and thoughtful, and that are worthy of our imaginations."
