If possible, cut this person out of your life completely. These people can only cause heartache in you life. They are very manipulative and sneaky and bring chaos into any relationship they're in. They just don't care about anyone but themselves. If you can't completely cut this person out of your life, try to keep a distance. Do no share any of your personal business with them. Make it a point to avoid them as much as possible. Please take this information seriously. I've been through this situation and I am still learning to deal with the damage and anger and have been working with a therapist.

My mother suffered from (undiagnosed) Narcissistic Personality Disorder. During the last years of her life she showed signs of Dementia. My step-mother (my father knew how to pick his women!!) has been, for her entire life, a full blown narcissist with all the traits of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. She has recently (she is 78) been diagnosed with Vascular Dementia. I have no idea how to cope with it. It is soul destroying to have to deal with her.

If the person is an adult, you would be wise to avoid dealing with him/her at all. You are not responsible for their personality disorder, and attempting to ameliorate it will only lead to more problems than you have already. You can get support at this site: http://thepsychopath.freeforums.org/

Stay away from them until they get ongoing help.

First, you should read up on the disorder. There are dozens of good websites sponsored by well known hospitals and other respected institutions that sponsor web pages devoted to narcissism and narcissistic personality disorder. If you have a good understanding of narcissism you will have the knowledge to deal with it more constructively.First, you should read up on the disorder.

Dissociative identity disorder, also known as multiple personality disorder is usually caused by trauma. Most of the time the trauma occurs in childhood, and a person dissociates in order to have the tools to deal with the trauma.

The most effective way to deal with Paranoid Personality Disorder is to undergo therapy. This type of mental illness is very hard to treat though as there is not much research about it since most people will not go to the doctor about it.

If you love someone who suffers from multiple personality disorder, it may be hard to relate or deal with them at times. There are some simple things that can be done to help maintain your relationship with that person. For example, never take any interactions personally from a person suffering from multiple personality disorder. Most times, a person with multiple personality disorder does not realize that they have changed personalities, so they may not understand why or even realize that they've upset you by something they've suddenly done. Take the words they say and actions they do with a grain of salt.

When dealing with a daughter in law or any family member who might have a personality disorder talk to the spouse and make sure there is something really going on and not that you just donร•t like the person. Then be kind when speaking with them and give them extra understanding.

If you have anti-social personality disorder the military wipes their hands clean of you and kick you out.

Once you recognize that your partner has that personality disorder - If you choose to stay with him or her - you must protect yourself. Do so by reading up on the disorder - and UNDERSTAND what you are dealing with - read what the experts advise how to protect yourself. And do it. Remember that the narcissist is not going to change. YOU must understand that and change yourself - protect yourself. Remember always that your partner is not going to change. Ever. Good luck.

Well, Bipolar Disorder, is much more severe than Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivty Disorder (ADHD), so the answer to this question is, 'no."

User Avatar

Yes, however, they may not show it in the way that is is usually expressed. If the disorder is severe and un-treated this makes the person very difficult to deal with on a one to one basis. Histrionic personality disorder is more common in women and is very similar to Anti-social personality disorder in men and both disorders make for very hard long term relatioships because people with this disorders are usually very narcissitic. Any one entering into a relatioship with someone with Histrionic disorders needs to make sure the person is aware of the disorder and willing to seek treatment.

While there is a great deal of debate over the existence of multiple personality disorders, bipolar disorder could appear in a way that seems like the individual has two almost unique personalities.

Often the most friends and family members can do when dealing with a narcissistic personality is to establish very firm personal boundaries, with clear limits regarding each individual's rights to make one's own decisions and to define one's own person. Encouraging the narcissist to take full advantage of professional counsel (described as support rather than "help") is always important.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is believed to result from childhood experiences and possibly hereditary factors.There is always a chance that a child of a narcissist will develop some of that person's personality traits. However, some narcissistic behavior is normal to most humans at some times. If you are concerned about your current behavior, you might want to speak with a therapist who can help you clarify it in your own mind. If you are concerned about the future, don't let it worry you. Live your life, and deal with problems IF they arise. Worrying has never solved anything.

Narcissistic behavior is predictable. If you have a good understanding of narcissism you will have the tools to deal with it more constructively. Here are a few pointers:Keep your distance- don't get too close and do not let them into your personal life. Do not share any personal information to the extent possible.Be practical about the disorder- you won't change them so step back whenever their narcissistic behavior rises to the surface.Avoid conflict generally, butDefine some limits- in some cases by not responding to inappropriate behavior you reinforce it- for example: if you must have continued exposure to the narcissist do not allow him/her to "tell you off", raise their voice at you, or treat you with disrespect.Do not try to argue or reason with them- your winning or convincing is counter to their world view- they will not allow it.Gain more understanding to enable you to work as constructively as possible.Give practical support when and if they ask for it.Maintain your own social contacts so that you can minimize the time you have to spend with the narcissist.See related links.Please add personal experiences and discussions to the discussion page.
