I'm currently waiting to see a phycologist at the hospital but i have an idea what i have, i just hoped by posting on here that others might be able to give an opinion too. Here goes:

I have had MAJOR fall outs with my parents all my life, im 36 now and this situation is still as it was 25 years ago. I feel like i genuinely hate my mother, not so much my dad as i see him as a 'yes man' to her. It's not only my parents i argue with but anyone who seems to go against my plans. Condequently i have a child i no longer live with and i'm currently getting divorced.

I am very unforgiving with anyone who has a pop at me, to the point where sometimes i'll never speak to the person again.

I find it impossible to put myself in others shoes, and although i make the right noises at the time, if it's not happening to me i don't care. If i meet someone who is 'nice' for want of a better word, i think they are putting on a front.

Recently i have started to dislike the person i've become which has started to get me very down.

Rather than go on and on i will be watvhing this post and will reply to any questions that might crop up.

Thanks for reading.

Its difficult to pinpoint disorders sometimes because it took a couple of years and several shrinks before mine were made crystal clear,

So i would keep an open mind about yours untill you have been through the system.With any personality disorder socialising with people can be difficult including family.

I lost a 30 year marriage through my disorders and my mother i don't see,i also have no friends and can't find a girlfriend or even a date?

My world is empty of any friends,family as i type,any questions you wish to ask please feel free.

that sounds like where i'm heading, lately i've been thinking about doing myself in as i fear the life you seem to be living. Would you mind telling me what you were diagnosed with? If not i understand.

My ex who has a degree in psychology thinks i might have NPD, does that sound reasonable?

I would agree its better to wait to find out by a psychatrist what exactly is going on, but for me i kinda pin pointed what was wrong with me, and the diagnoses just confirmed what i knew was wrong with me.
