You're just jealous that I took this one before you thought of it.

I want to see what you choose.

Oh how easily we lie down and take what's fed to us here.

This is how Hitler got to run amok.

I am sorry you have to deal with this from "professionals" and at home. It's more than a bit unfair. It's excruciatingly unfair. You've had to go through so many hoops while having your wife go into denial because she doesn't know how to handle it. It's very overwhelming and it doesn't help when you're struggling to get your thoughts across especially when you can't quite figure out your emotional state.

You've been through enough. They can see you're trying. If they care they need to show you respect and take you seriously rather than blame when they don't understand.

I also want to point out that I'm not trying to villainize your wife and her actions. I'm sure she isn't doing it on purpose, of course, but is in her own state of being overwhelmed. The so-called professionals, on the other hand, need to stop talking in circles and listen. Once something is decided on their side that aligns with what you feel is correct, your wife will probably feel less inundated with seemingly limitless problems that she sees herself and others not understanding. It's got to be taking a toll trying to be a mother to four kids and unable to help a spouse in such a situation.

I have a good one.

Frenchman asks Englishman: "Why are you so sad?"

Englishman replies: "You'll find out on Sunday!"

Really hate this math $#%^. I should've lied about how much I scored in school diploma.

Could've really put int a lot more effort, so it's definitely my fault. Still, is it completely unreasonable to complain?

Someone posted a PDF of Millon's work on Schizoid (among others) and after reading it, it's made me feel a bit better about the lack of personality/identity aspect. I couldn't find much information on why I was lacking so I was looking for that in some other disorder. While not all Schizoids will lack that aspect, it is something that can be a potential issue for Schizoids. I have always related to what I have seen from Millon so it was nice to get the first hand account and relate all over again. It's been an uphill battle for sure.

Link for those that haven't seen it yet.

I would advise you to watch out for the Barnum effect.
