    Are Narcissists Born Not Made? Article.

    There’s a saying that some artists or masterful musicians and craftsmen are “born, not made.” In some ways, our DNA imprints much of our future personalities and talents into our human form, but some paths that are followed are created by us, not born into us.

    Brought on through EVP

    Hi, I am new here. I feel the need to share my story, since I have never heard of anyone else who has voices brought on in the way I did.

    So now it's a different kind of worry, as I have a date confirmation of 8th January for my hearing (lower tribunal were ordered by upper tribunal to re-do my case due to mistakes made first time around); nothing in the post - this date was told to me over the phone as I yet again had to badger...
