    10 Traits That May Indicate a Personality Disorder

    As a general rule, people with personality disorders can be difficult to get along or maintain a healthy relationship with. They can be argumentative, stubborn, and frustrating if there is a lack of understanding about what a PD really means or how it manifests itself in an individual. A person with a PD has an inaccurate perception of reality which is pervasive in every environment and is not diagnosed until 18 years old. However, there always is a previous history of five years giving indications that a person has a PD before their formal diagnosis that can still help those around them identify the issue.

    How to Survive When Quarantined with a Narcissist

    After being married to a narcissistic wife for over 10 years and quarantined at home with her for the last several weeks, Ben had enough. His whole body started to reject his spouse’s self-centeredness by plaguing him with intense pain and repeated anxiety attacks that he could no longer ignore.

Comprehensive and helpful

This is by far one of the most comprehensive and helpful podcasts about narcissistic personality disorder. It covers every aspect of narcissistic abuse whether it’s before, during, or after the abuse occurred. I found it very helpful to come in terms with my personal recovery after such abuse had occurred. After listening to many sources about NPD, I found this is the only podcast you will need for guidance and recovery. Thank you.
