Dealing with my narcissism... if that's what it is

New here. Hi all.
I want to explore this a little.
I am aware that I am either NPD or I sit on the borderline between extremely high narcissism and NPD...
I'm currently in a rather depressed state, so I'm just going to write what I am thinking and feeling and would welcome comments from anyone who wishes to give me their opinion.

I believe that I have NPD although I believe it is quite ...

Am I a Narcissist? Aspergers

This is really mortifying for me to admit to these feelings, so please go easy on me. I really hope that nobody I know comes across this thread.

I need to say that I have a diagnosis of Aspergers and struggle with expectations in society, my expectations, body language and people’s intentions. I don’t have any friends and am often seen as being stuck up and aloof.

For the last year I have secretly wondered ...

Emptiness, and depersonalization

Hi all, probably posted about this before but whatever:

- Supposedly for VNs emptiness/DP is a way for the ego to regulate feelings of shame.

"Psychoanalytical theories coincide in understanding depersonalization (DP) as a disorder of narcissistic self-regulation. DP is described as an ego defense against overwhelming shame resulting in a splitting of an observing ego detached from the experiencing self. In contrast to a behavioral-cognitive theory on DP, which suggests that the catastrophic appraisal ...

Remorse and shame

I feel such terrible remorse and shame for all I have done. I cannot keep friendships to save my life and I don’t know how to have them. Why my husband stays with me is a miracle. Some things improve and some things don’t. I just want to move forward and be able to keep friendships. Thanks for letting me vent.

Does the false self have empathy?

So is the one holding the true self captive capable of having reflexive empathy? Cognitivw empathy, yea, but that is cols empathy.

Having fallen into collapse and into a near-alternating psychotic state, my defences are running buckwild and am really not sure of my state of mind anymore but I recently experienced something akin to it but couldn’t really say with 100% certainty. Situation was thus: at work this guy that I first was obtuse ...

Do I have NPD? [being assessed]

Hi. I'm currently being assessed for a range of things and I wanted to see if I could speak to people with NPD to get your take/opinion on this. It's really hard trying to find any actual help or neutral info on NPD out there, it's all articles by supposed empaths talking about how evil narcissism is. Bleh. Anyway.

I've always thought I had ADHD and anxiety, then when my doctor started talking about Personality ...

Long-term employment

So where do you stand on this? Are you able to keep up appearances well enough so as to go for a 9-5?

Basically I’m finding out the hard way that I couldn’t handle a l”normal” 5-day workweek at this factory any longer. I’m simply too bad of a mixture of schizoid/antisocial/paranoid combined with BPD/derealization to handle what I deem simple
tasks on some days.

Like I might get super anxious and my panties in ...

Difference Narcissist and NPD

There is something I don't understand about Narcissism.
Is Narcissism the same as Narcissistic Disorder?
I mean a person proud of their accomplishments has a narcissistic disorder?
For example, a Nobel Prize winner who believes himself to be superior to others is an NPD?
Is he even a Narcissist?
