Parent with NPD

I think my father has NPD. He is incapable of showing empathy, takes out his depression on me and emotionally abuses me. He is horrible to everyone around him and has no real relationships. He a heavily alcohol dependent, is horrible to my mother and has no care about anyone’s life other than his own. He expects everyone to act how he wants and expects me to do everything he says. He tried to exercise ...

Married to a Porn Addict?

Thank you for the opportunity to share and hopefully get some much needed advice, feedback and support on a situation that I am a bit naive about. A couple of years ago I stumbled upon the shocking revelation of my husband of 30 years' porn habit. I knowvthis may sound a bit naive, but I truly had no idea why he shut himself up in a room with the door locked for hours(anywhere from 3-5) ...

Is seeing an ex you dumped a trigger for you?

I have an ex girlfriend who was diagnosed with BPD in her late teens. She’s 21, I’m 24. Although things were great at first, she started to become very vindictive and hurtful eventually she dumped me for her ex boyfriend after sleeping with him so I left her alone stopped contact and blocked her on social media.

I guess she perceived this as abandonment maybe? After that she was extremely angry with me. Over time ...

My Girlfriend is a Sex Addict- Now what?

Hey all,

I'm not exactly sure what I am looking for but I feel like talking this out is a good start for me. 2 nights ago, my girlfriend admitted to me that she is a sex addict. She explained that it has been diagnosed, she has been seeing a therapist, which she admitted to hiding from me at first. She explained briefly just how "off the rails" she has been in the past and ...

Victim Mentality and Diagnosis

There is a person in my family who fits the bill for this Wikipedia definition of "Victim Mentality" perfectly: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victim_mentality. Victim Mentality may not be a disorder in and of itself, it seems to be a strategy to get away with other antisocial issues.This particular person is a chronic gambler, hoarder, severely overweight, and has been sexually inappropriate to others in the past.

I recently started seeing a psychologist and this person said that they ...

The end of a lifelong abuse

Over the years, I have come to realise that my mother had all the traits of a narcissist. She streamrolled through all my relationships and did her best to destroy all of them. I am now on my second marriage and my wife was the one who opened my eyes to the narcissist that my mother was. My wife has been ostracised and rejected by my mother, but I have held strong and she hated ...
