Note: I reserve this blog for personal writing that does not belong on my websites; it is a collection of words that may add up to airing dirty laundry. At the risk of being judged or labeled, I write and post to help myself process but also to model out arguments for others who may be dealing with similar people. This is an anecdotal article about personal experience with Narcissists. It contains references to various resources about identifying, profiling, dealing with Narcissists. If you feel that you need help with a relationship dealing with a Narcissist, it is NEVER too early to seek counseling.
The World is Quiet Here
Things that abuse didn’t make me do:
This is a checklist to help one understand Narcissistic Personality Disorder. All information is taken from the DSM If you did not meet the minimum criteria for this checklist, you may want to look into anxiety disorders and depressive disorders. If you experience the symptoms above but only in episodes and not persistently, you may want to look into Bipolar Disorder. Narcissistic traits could be a side effect of a manic or hypomanic episode.

Abuse is almost entirely about control. It is often a primitive and immature reaction to life circumstances in which the abuser usually in his childhood was rendered helpless. The bulk of abusive behaviors can be traced to this panicky reaction to the remote potential for loss of control. Many abusers are hypochondriacs and difficult patients because they are afraid to lose control over their body, its looks and its proper functioning. They are obsessive-compulsive in an effort to subdue their physical habitat and render it foreseeable. To the abuser, nothing exists outside himself. Meaningful others are extensions, internal, assimilated, objects — not external ones. It is terrifying. Independent or disobedient people evoke in the abuser the realization that something is wrong with his worldview, that he is not the centre of the world or its cause and that he cannot control what, to him, are internal representations. To the abuser, losing control means going insane.
