Alphabet Soup

My head is spinning, I have been on the google and searching for new stuff and most of what I find has some dizzy bitch palavering over all the differences in personality disorders. Weeeeeellll, Cluster B's have a tendency to wet their pants and NPD's crowd around and hog the mirror in public bathrooms.  Borderlines will sleep with your boy friend while anti socials are into hiding under the bed all day. Psychopaths have poor personal hygiene, but Sociopaths are fastidiously groomed. Inverted this and covert that. While the closer you read it the less you understand. Until it is obvious they don't have a fucking clue what they are talking about.
N-P-D

Here I'll let Moe Larry and  Curly explain it.
At least they got  paid for it!

Oooh, come on. It would make a world of difference to me if I knew whether my brother had anticocial, borderline or bipolar personality disorder when he almost set the house on fire at the age of 15. After all it's such a blast spending your childhood with a pyromaniac that the proper label would have made it soooo much more enjoyable.

No we can't label crazy people crazy. It might hurt their self esteem and they might get their widdle feelings hurt while they are busy sticking a shiv in our backs.

Elli G said...

Right, we also need to encourage them to be themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin. Get me a lighter and a gas tank, I am up for some bonding with my brother.

I must be just too lazy to read any of it, so I just take you guys word and just accept that they are crazy.
You know, there are people in my neck of the woods that say that Rianna must have really pissed off Chris Brown so much, otherwise why would he leave her almost dead? What would be his reasons? He had to have reasons, and as such mentality happens, he was back to belting out million dollar records long before she was physically recovered.

People will say the crazies deserve love and compassion, kill them with kindness. And as this mentality exists, there will still be people out there defending them and putting logic, and with this "defining the evil", then there must be some logical explanation why people do what they do.

To summarize what I just said, all this giving credence to the Cluster B. As it says in the bible, "Woe unto you who call good, evil and evil, good".

I was in there thinking and thinking more about it. Why does such a seemingly innocuous post get under my skin so much and I think I figured it out. They spend the first half of a post scolding people about assigning labels to people and how we shouldn't do it. Then they turn right around and spend the second half explaining the nuance behind the labels we should use. In my book that's gas lighting. That we should only assign them with the label they want to be assigned. My mother was insane and she worked hard at it so I say call her out for the bat shit loon she was.

Elli put her out when she has a hot pink center!

I tend to just tell people my mother is not a good person. For some reason, that gets less pushback than if I'd called her a narcissist.

My sister tells me she tells people she was raised by wolves. Knowing my sister I think she really does. I imagine it makes them compelled enough to suck in enough air to ask questions and that bit of time makes them think better of it and drop the topic.

Joan S said...

I think I'm going to say that I was raised by wolves too, but that's insulting to the poor wolves, amazing parents. About the differences in personality disorders. These people who go on about the differences in personality disorders are wacky. I say this for Christian ethics keep me in line here, but what I want to say is that I don't give a crap, and why should I? Who was there for me when I was being picked on, bullied, etc. Who was there? Who was there to give very descriptive meanings and terms for what I was going through? Rather, I was blamed, and so blamed for it, it eated me alive, unable to cope.

No. There is no way in hell that I give a damn for freaks and the freaks who care about freaks. There was a freak I used to know who just tried to friend me on facebook. I sent her a message, to get lost freak. There I said it. Felt good. Don't care. Happy day. Back to Christian ethics.

q1605 said...

If people are more worried about not labeling the people with personality disorder's for fear of stigmatizing them I doubt they had it so bad. I would like to imprint mine with the name of a caste iron skillet to their fore head.

Joan S said...

Borderlines will sleep with your boyfriend for everything you have is theirs for the taking anyway. And as far as the mirror is concerned, well, that is theirs too. I hope that helps define the difference. Oh and histronists throw a fit so you better put down what your doing, you are not supposed to be doing anything when a histrionic wants your attention. I've seen my mother do all three, but I still class her as a narcissist. She once threw a large pot of spaghetti sauce all over the wall when she could not get someone's attention. What part of the Cluster B is that one?

Gee, I'm confusing myself here.

q1605 said...

I don't know. I was about to the end of my rope with wife #1 and bought that book about borderlines called "I Hate You Please Don't Leave Me" and it made them sound like a hybrid of my mother and my ex. Professionals have quit treating them, all because the patient doesn't feel they need help. But if you acted like them they would have you hauled off in a straight jacket before nightfall.

q1605 said...

We all get confused when the task is to put labels on them. It's like nailing jello to the wall.

Five Hundred Pound Peep said...

There's borderline narcs, and sociopathic narcs. The ones who love attention who go histrionic. There's so many overlaps it does get confusing. Christian ethics just say they are evil. It's not politically correct. I know....Reprobate, wolves, etc. No sunshine and unicorns and rainbows or articles about healing narcs from me.

mulderfan said...

Toward the end of my over 30 year career as a Special Ed teacher, I learned to ignore the various labels they slapped on kids and just tried to help them as best I could.

Doesn't matter what label you put on a narc. It's a waste of time and energy trying to get through to them.
