Apologizing to an N

If I criticize or shame an N and instigate an N meltdown/communication break-down, how does my apology affect him/her? Is this a show of weakness that give him him/her more reason to be disgusted by me, or is the gesture appreciated? What is the best way to bounce back from a fight with an N when you have crossed that boundary and trampled on their self-esteem?

Does a person with delusional disorder knows he/she is sick?

I'm very frustrated now, cause it's almost the end of the year and my mom still doesn't know she's sick, she's been sick almost a year! She has serious delusional disorder since this January, she's the Persecutory Type and Jealous Type. Her two big problems: she thinks she and I have been raped and she imagined that my dad is cheating on her.

I'll give you an ideal how crazy she is, and this is ...

Courage to Leave a Bad Situation

I posted here previously as the wife standing alongside a man who has had delusion disorder jealousy subtype for years(and also very likely persecutory subtype). I am now a free woman. Eleven days ago a straw broke the camel's back and I just - LEFT. A feat that even a week previously I did not know if I would have the courage to perform, and definitely not as well as I did it. I feel ...

The New Woman: Your Replacement

Yeah, I like to beat my dead horse.

I've been doing so well. Or I was until BOOM I find out my N ex is living with a girl after knowing her for 8 days. I'm prettier, but she's way more accomplished, and as a cerebral, he's just eating it up, I know.

Here's how I feel: like utter complete dog sh it. He never wanted to live with me. In fact, I imagine he's ...

The HPD GAME (for dummies) (Non Thread)

The HPD GAME is pretty simple. It is this:

Person with HPD meets guy. HPD lights him up. Makes him feel like no one has before. She shares intimate details with him, almost right away, to bring him in close. She treats him like a god. She's very sexual and she is very beautiful. Her goal, conscious or not, is to make him fall obsessively in love with her. Once he does, she starts to ...

HPD's - Creating jealousy to hurt people

* Question aimed more at HPD's but I'd like to hear non-HPD's experiences too *

Out of curiosity...

Is it a pretty standard trait of HPD's to create jealousy to purposefully create pain for people who love them?

For example - relentless efforts to make a lover jealous by showing interest in other men/women, both by deliberate and direct means and/or even just by subtle suggestion.

If the answer is yes to this question and ...

Delusional Wife refuses to seek Treatment

Hello --

I am new to this site.

Following explains what I have been going through:

The problem started about a year back when my wife suddenly
became withdrawn and stopped talking to everyone. Her interaction
with me was limited to daily activities but showed no interest otherwise.
We have a toddler with special needs. Prior to becoming withdrawn she used
to take great care of our son but slowly that stopped and came to ...

Why we can't love someone with HPD (for NONs only)

1.) Because she can't really love us back.

2.) Because when she is safe, loved, her heart and mind soon wander to others.

3.) Because she needs far more than she can give.

4.) Because love for he is about being desired by many others.

5.) Because she'll show more compassion to an acquaintance than she will her "lover"

6.) Because even if you love her, and she loves you, she'll remind you in a ...
