Misleading signals from girl with BPD

Long summary, I 30M, went out briefly with 29F who has BPD and other mental health issues. After a month she said we moved too fast and she not comfortable with it, and we should stay friends and I should move on. Since then she would sporadically text me to see how I’m doing, unless it’s the days we work together. On those days she would seek me out and text me more and hold ...

Psychosis and tolerance..I need help!

I'm presently engaged to a woman who has been dealing with severe psychosis but it's getting to the point where it's definitely holding us back. It's difficult to move forward in life when your spouse experiences psychosis and living in a world plagued by hearing voices and really bizarre delusions. I am desperate at this point for some advice on how I can help her to come to terms with the psychosis and to finally ...

Wife and HPD...am I off base?

Hello everyone, thanks in advance for taking the time to look over this post. I have been with my wife now for 15 years. I have noticed some of the traits of HPD in her for many years, but never even heard of it until I started doing online research. She exhibits signs of most of the personality traits, but I am not sure if she does the others. I will try to go through ...

Could my mom be suffering from a mild case of NPD?

I read about narcissism, and never really before made the connection to my mom. I have thought she might be borderline, or maybe just ADHD, but never really a narcissist until some pointers felt like they rang extremely true on her. But there's also many of the most classical signs about narcissism that I don't think she entirely fits.

So to explain my mom. First of all, she never had a good relationship with her ...

family issues, mostly

Not sure if I'm in the read thread, but I'll give this a go.

I'm 47, male, and currently living with my father. Ten years or more ago I was off and on dating a woman about 6 years younger then me but we never got past out intimacy issues. Some thought she was using me, others just thought I should move on and some others would suggest things to try to move things forward. ...

Schizophrenic(?) brother starving himself

My brother in his 40s has apparently had paranoia for years, although I only realized how serious it was in recent months. He'd strangely left jobs over the years and maybe there were other signs I didn't notice. In recent months, he sold his house and moved in with our parents. He's talked about people sneaking around and messing with his life and framing him. He's afraid that electronics around him are always being hacked ...

Help understanding relationship with Histronic

I'll try and keep this as short as possible. I started dating a girl I'd known since high school towards the end of last year. We only casually knew one another and didn't keep in contact over the years and are both now 35. She'd always been a girl who was super outgoing, nice and went to Church all the time. I went into the relationship giving 100% of my trust.
During the relationship she ...

HPDs advice to a Non

Hi, everyone. I got involved with a HPD person, didn't know this term existed until a few days ago, I stumbled on a comment on a news portal mentioning HPD, so Googled and found this.

I must say it is is kind of weird to read all this, as I feel I'm spying on her personality. Which really isn't the case, as all people are different but still, kind of weird.

We had quite a ...
