Hello! Can you tell me if it's possible to have OCD and NPD at the same time? I was diagnosticated with OCD but I saw I have some symptomps of NPD:
- I want other people to respect me, especially women and I can treat them like they don't exist
- I can't deal with being told "no"
- I can become jealous very easy for no reason
- I'm very mad and depressive when others are ignoring me
What do you think?

I think when youre diagnosed with OCD you should be very careful about attempts to look for some disorder you might have in addition to that, because mostly it will be a form of cyberchondria. We've had a load of OCDers here already who convinced themselves of having NPD and some forgot all about their actual diagnosis of OCD in the process. Leave the diagnosing to the pros. Apart from that a diagnosis itself wont help you anyways, only therapy can.

I'm partially cured from OCD, it wasn't so serious. I took meds for one year, but I'm worried about my uncontrollable rages about feeling unique and the need of respect.

"Because of the sometimes subtle presentation
of narcissistic personality disorder, especially
at the higher-functioning end of the spectrum,
and because of the centrality of interpersonal
difficulties in the disorder, a systematic clin-
ical interview may be the most reliable way
to diagnose narcissistic personality disorder.
Kernberg’s structural interview (29) is one such
clinical interview, and it is also available in
modified form as a semistructured interview
(30). While structured assessments for narcis-
sistic personality disorder, in both self-report
and structured interview formats, have dem-
onstrated reliability and utility for research, they
add little to the interview of a skilled clinician.

Modafinil could help.

. i dont know what to do next, cause it looks like my problems are worse than i thought.until a few days ago i at least, thought i have some qualities, knowledge,[im a know it all] all my collecting [books,pottery, glass etc] my art,my work,or being the best carpenter around. hell, i even learned a couple beethoven piano sonatas, just to impress my impossible to impress father. im nothing...now i really need drugs.all that i am isnt me, now what? i want to go wake my biggest detractor, dad, and say its not my fault. is it?



Were you a golden child? If so, you probably achieve a lot as a way to get fuel having learned as a child. I learned to manage my father by becoming a nice trophy for him. Maybe this leads to borderline traits.

I consider myself more of an empath. Because i was golden to my father he tutored me. Showed me how he treated women so it wouldn't happen to me. Encouraged me to compete and not take crap.

So I'm nurturing and like to please and perform. But I don't take crap off people.

My struggle is to find calm in just being--to not always achieve something to feel good.

What does that mean?
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!
