Sorry I'm not sure where to post this.
So ever since I was very young my father has always been very strange. He has always been very mean to me and everyone. His biggest issue is with property. He believes everything is his property. He stole things from me on well over 100 occasions. He would always have an elaborate story of how he acquired the item and accuse me of stealing it from him. He also feels that he is superior and that everybody is below him. He is also very paranoid. He is also very rude to people in public. He walks up to people and says mean and vulgar things to them. He has never shown any remorse or sympathy for anyone. I became much more concerned in our last few phone conversations when he kept excessively referring to voices and we had to involve the police when he called to announce that he was coming to our house to get "his things" which are in the eyes of the law most certainly not his but that of others. He keeps claiming that it's our way of hurting him because he can't seem to understand that when people refuse to have anything to do with him that it's because of his deplorable behavior. Also his father was schizophrenic. I've never been able to figure it out as it sounds like several disorders. The list goes on by the way. I'd like to know what mental disorder(s) this sounds like. I always wanted to know.

there's not enough here to even hazard a diagnosis. and, candidly, does it really matter. it seems that you have a good enough understanding of the situation.
