Partners to a HPD (from a HPD)

I like this for him because it gives the opportunity for people to ask questions that they normally don’t understand. I think we have a lot of information about dealing with NPD partners but not a lot about histrionic partners. I’ve been diagnosed for about 20 years now, I am in therapy and I have a great deal of insight on my disorder in the home it’s cause my partners. You have questions, ask away.

Need help with flip flopping personality

This is my mother who I am trying to figure out.

I believe she has a personality disorder of some type, but not sure what.

No way she would never go in for therapy.

Anyway, she is a perfectionist, and has some form of OCD. Not wash your hands 100 times a day or anything. Its sort of mild and I think probably learned behavior from her childhood or due to her perfectionism.

She also ...

Can't let go of distractive behaviour

I am a new Health and Wellbeing Coach and I am currently working with a client who is not able to let go of distractive behaviour. I know from personal experience that when we live with a certain behaviour for a long time then we are scared to let go because we know how to deal with the current behaviour even if it is not what we want. However, we do not know what it ...
