??? for Narcissists-I'm flawed, I want to be "valued" again

My husband (we are married for 12 years and are in our 50's) who has been diagnosed with NPD, abandoned me about 4-1/2 mo ago while I was at work. Two months later, after beginning counseling at his request, he advised me that it was not effective so we were discontinuing. Ironically, I found out that was the day or day after he met his gf - about a month later he told me he ...

Can treatment for other disorders cause SPD?


Over a decade ago I was diagnosed with Major Depression and Avoidant Personality "Type" but avoided treatment for years. After stumbling into a pretty good job that helped boost my self-esteem a lot, I made a lot of progress by having to tolerate being around people at a large company for eight hours a day, but during stressful times I would revert back and feel large amounts of anxiety from being around people. Not ...

Hello my name is Angel, I have bipolar disorder and am now
in the depressive cycle of my manic-depressive illness. I am
hoping to soon cycle back to my manic side when I am up
and creating art again, and in a better/energetic mood.

I am looking forward to talking with you all and getting
more information and learning more about bipolar disorder.

Angel :)

Hi, a strange thing

As I was exploring my psychology thru the book "How to raise your self-esteem by Nathaniel Branden". I discovered a kind of "monster/child" within me. I was sexually abused by my father at 2 and half years old.

This monster/child seems to have, okay the following is pretty weird stuff, I'm not to sure about how to write it so I'll just put it down.

Bipolar Support Groups

I think most major towns have bipolar support groups. I am curious to know if anyone here has been to these meetings. I think i would feel embarrassed to go to a meeting where other people knew me. If everyone there had the same problems, it would be ok, but I think many of the people are family of bipolar people.

I notice that many people here prefer to stay anonymous, and I am no ...

what do I do about the enabler?

I'm sure my wife has this HPD. Fits all criteria to a T. Her best friend lavishes attention on her and also her kids who think my wife is Queen, so she has grafted herself to that family and is distancing herself from her own (our kids are adults, her friend's kids little). I miss her. She has distanced herself from me claiming I don't love her nor understand her and I don;t accept her ...
