Felgraf: FarkinHostile: The difference is I try. You can program your programming if you really want to and work on it.

Hooray meta-cognition!

/Though I'm not sure all people are capable of 'thinking about thinking'. Or, at least, it probably has to be taught...


Then again, nothing says "barrel of fun" like being highly aware of all the flaws in your personality.

QueenMamaBee: I work with someone I swear has histronic personality disorder. She took two days off because she had to have her dog put down and actually told me that her dogs are just like kids.... that it's like a child dying. First time in my life I was speechless.


People with kids tells me the same thing about their pets all the time. I figure they know best what they feel and it's not up to me to judge.

Anyway...that being said...subby, seriously, getting divorced once is unfortunate, getting divorced more than once means you have an issue. Think about it. Hey, at least no one can accuse you of having commitment issues, as I have been so accused. Rightfully so, really.

Doom MD: FarkinHostile: cryinoutloud: I have no problem with you guys divorcing your loony ex (I divorced mine too) but it's not just an "excuse." It's how they think, it's how their brains are wired. When they appear to have no idea how they have hurt or offended you, they really don't.

Sorry, but I don't buy it. When things were good, they were great, so she knew her actions had significance and when it suited her, she was wonderful. After I left her, she acknowledged her "problems" as she tried to get me to take her back, while doing all of the things that made me leave her.

She knew. She controlled it when it suited her.

In all honesty, I could have been diagnosed with a personality disorder when I was a teen/young man. I'm not the most "sane" fellow, and I struggle with my issues every day. The difference is I try. You can program your programming if you really want to and work on it.

While I am in no place to opine on your relationship, realize BPD'ers are manipulative on a level most normal individuals could only dream of aspiring to.

Personality disorders persist in the population because when deployed properly, they can be wildly successful individuals (the hammer in the room full of nails, so to speak). Human history has turned on such individuals. I'm sure many historical figures had personality disorders and were at the right place at the right time.



A mild case of schizoid that makes a person somewhat immune to criticism and personal considerations can be handy for getting things done.

doczoidberg: More disorders = more reasons to prescribe people expensive medications.


There are no pills for personality disorders, chief.

kokomo61: I think my sister had it nailed when she said 'Borderline Personality Disorder' is just an excuse for bad behavior.

If you can blame it on a 'disorder', then TaDa! No personal responsibility!


I've always said BPD is psychiatry's way of calling you an asshole.

Me thinks Subby has problems of his own.... I mean, who in their right mind gets married more than once? ( even once is a questionable decision)

"For example, the team's final proposal for narcissistic personality disorder involved rating a person on four traits, including 'manipulativeness,' 'histrionism,' and 'callousness.' The current definition includes nine possible elements."

That's a good start on defining my ex's, but they forgot to add "won't even look for a damn job-ism", "drinking until you pass out in front of the kids syndrome", and "who the hell where those strange men who just left you drunk and unable to walk on our porch at 3AM."

/not kidding
