Apparently I need a disclaimer cause I talk openly about everything. So here goes –
This is my personal blog. The opinions expressed here are my own thoughts and views and, chances are, they’ll change from time to time. I consider this a consequence of having an open mind. My blog is not operated by or affiliated with any mental health care provider or professionals. Only me. And I’m just a little old lady with a computer and internet access. This blog is simply intended to provide validation, support and, hopefully, a little humor to those whom, like myself, were raised by narcissistic / borderline personality disordered mothers.
And alcoholic fathers.
And a plethora of extended family members riddled with homicide, suicide, mental illness, incarceration, substance abuse, depression, various addictions, adultery, greed and unfathomable cruelty. I’m sure I’ve left something out but no worries – they’ll rear their ugly heads, eventually. They always do.
Names have been changed to protect the innocent. As for the not so innocent? Well they know who they are – and there’s only so much I can do to protect them from themselves. My intention is TO NOT malign any religion, ethnic group, club, organization, company, or individual. Oh and just in case I say something stupid? I’d like to point out that the stupidity is mine and mine alone.
I am not a therapist, psychologist or any type of mental health professional, practitioner or provider and I certainly don’t try to play one on the internet. Nothing published on my blog is medical fact or medical advice – it’s just my opinion, which is known to be wrong from time to time. I’ve met some really super intelligent therapists – and known a few who are dumber than my cat. It’s a crap shoot so I would suggest you judge information on its own merits.

NPD is a spectrum disorder, which can also present with other disorders. A diagnosis should be made by a licensed mental health care provider using the appropriate diagnostic criteria.

If you suspect you or a loved one may have BPD / NPD – I encourage you to learn all you can and surround yourself with support as you learn how to cope.
