Histrionics - 2009 is rated/received certificates of: Australia:G


Tabitha was known for her over the top hysterical reactions to problems. Her histrionics became a joke in the company cafeteria.


The cast of Histrionics - 2009 includes: Lex Marinos as Himself - Judge Lex Marinos as Himself - Lord High Chancellor Matthew Rossner as Himself - Host


The man, suspiciously acting as though he were making up the story to the police, spoke with excessive hand gestures and imitated voices, giving the impression through his histrionics that he was trying a little too hard to convince.(Its noteworthy that histrionics alone do not necessarily imply being evasive or lying; despite the fact that in this case, the man may appear to be portrayed as doing so.)


My Life as a Teenage Robot - 2003 The Puppet Bride Histrionics 3-3 was released on: Japan: 29 September 2006 USA: 18 October 2008


Sometimes she takes drama too far in her everyday life. Her histrionics often grow tiresome and repetitive.


The adjective "histrionic" applies to exaggerated acting or dramatics, which may be animated or frenzied. The plural noun "histrionics" is synonymous with such actions. Example : "The driver reacted to the traffic ticket with a histrionic display of anger." Example : "During the council session, one speaker engaged in repeated histrionics while arguing against the proposed measure."


The only similarity I can think of is that they both want attention. The difference in that aspect is that Histrionics don't need that attention to be positive.

Well, she's six, and the world pretty much is all about her. Your daughter is just beginning to establish an independent identity and she'll push the borders to see what's acceptable and what's not. That's all part of learning. One suggestion on how to handle this is to simply ignore the histrionics. In all liklihood, she'll become a little more dramatic in the short term, but when she learns that acting out gets her no where and no response, she'll look for another way to express herself. to do this you have to show her you are not playing games and if you have to spank her she will learn who is the boss. if you dont believe in spanking your kids take there fave game or toy away and tell them thay can not have it back untell they colme down. put them in the corner or some thing any thing you do will show them that YOU are the boss and not them.

The phrase heavy metal (in music) was literally invented by Steppenwolf - Born to be Wild (1968).For opinion on the question, read on.The Kinks' You Really Got Me (1964) was probably the first example of a metal riff (where Davies reportedly slashed his amp with a knife to get distortion), and Hendrix pioneered the guitar histrionics that characterise a lot of metal. Most people say that 'metal' itself was created by Black Sabbath (1968) though; riffs that were no longer so bluesy, the occult theme, the heaviness, the power chords, the pessimistic outlook. It's possible to trace most aspects of metal back to Black Sabbath.Other bands such as Blue Cheer (1967) and High Tide (1969) are also credited with inventing metal.I'd also like to shout out Gustav Holst (1916) and Jeff Beck, who is credited with being the first guitarist to create a way to control guitar distortion (circa 1966) and, (just my opinion) recorded the first metal-style guitar solo on Heart Full of Soul with the Yardbirds, released in June 1965.


Probably because it is hard for people to accept things that are outside their comfort zones. Emotionality is looked down on in our society between the genders, and the hyper-emotionality and histrionics that accompany some sorts of mental illness are perceived to be illustrative of people with no self-control, or drama queens (a term applied to either gender, incidentally). The mentally ill are also blamed for homelessness and for bad work environments and so many other things. If you can blame something on someone not taking their Paxil rather than confronting a personality conflict or a societal imbalance, it is an easier way for people to deal with things. It's also scary for people to feel out of control, or that something like that could happen to them. We tend to avoid things that make us feel scared or uncomfortable, and to label and push those things away from us. We make assumptions and stigmatize "those people" ... not only with the mentally ill, but with anyone outside our circle of acceptance and inclusion (immigrants, other religions, other races or lifestyles) ... in order to feel better about ourselves.


I am no expert but I have done ALOT of reading on both because I first thought my gf was narrcist. But reading on this I noticed histrionic kept coming up. In my opinion with what I have read and knowing her there is not much different at all. Histrionic personality disorder seems to be more common in women than men. And narrcist is more common in men. Histrionics use seduction and flirtation to get attention and draw people in. And she would flirt with any female. Let me be clear I am a lesbian and this hasn't been discussed much on this forum. But she is text book histrionic. She would even flirt with older much older women. She claimed she did it to make them feel good. But actually it made her feel good knowing they got something out of her flirting with them it fed her ego. She flirted to the point that it was embarrassing and disrespectful to me. There is not much difference at all. I started questioning all of her odd behavior the tantrums flrting, accussing me of things trying to push people out of my life. She began looking for other women online while telling me I was the love of her life. Then she dumped me when she found another. Totally ignoring me like i was nothing. SO they are very similar which is why u see them both mentioned together alot. Also, personality disorders are all the same as far as their goal which is all about them they dont feel for others. I think one difference is just a matter of how they go about getting what they want.


Health varies greatly. If someone is healthy physically, it usually shows because they have healthy habits such as exercising regularly and avoiding too many sweets. They definitely won't all look the same, because we have different body types and shapes, and a weight that is healthy for one person could be very unhealthy for another. Emotional, Psychological, and Spiritual health should also be considered in assessing overall health. Having a generally positive outlook, interaction with others, avoidance of histrionics, and living what you believe, whatever that is, are also factors that could indicate a healthy person. In general, if you feel hopeful and physically well, it is likely that you are healthy in several ways. ___ The healthiest individuals are described as being "fit," which means they can easily perform common sports activities. Many people are not fit, but could still be considered healthy. The easiest answer is: a person is healthy if they are not sick. But, people can be very sick and not know it. Blood tests can be used to see if you are sick, even if you feel well. Other medical tests may be needed. Diabetes, heart disease and cancer often have no warning signs. The other side of the coin is that you may not feel well even if the doctor can't find anything wrong. Therefore, you can consider yourself healthy if you: 1) Feel well 2) A doctor says you are not sick Feeling well generally consists of the following: 1) Having enough energy to do normal daily activities happily 2) Sleeping well, going to sleep easily, waking easily, feeling refreshed after sleep 3) Having regular bowel movements


She hated the sheltered, upper class life she was living. She hated all the rigid social rules and etiquette that kept her behavior so tightly controlled. She wanted to live a life where she could do what she wanted to do, rather than what was expected of her. The fact that she was expected to marry a cruel, abusive man for his money, because her father had blown the family fortune, only made her feel more trapped. If it sounds stupid to kill yourself because you don't want to live up to the expectations that artistocracy demands, then, you're right. It is stupid. But let's not forget that Rose was only 17 years old at the time, and teenagers are extremely prone to histrionics. Not only that, but as a woman living at the turn of the century, her opportunities were limited. At that time, it was a woman's job to get married and be a full-time mother and homemaker. There were very few jobs women could get, and most of them offered little or no opportunity for career advancement, as it was expected that a woman would stop working when she got married. As Rose's mother, Ruth, says, "The purpose of university is to find a suitable husband." College education for women was considered superfluous. Women did not need to be educated, since they were not supposed to have careers. Careers for women were very limited: things like secretary or receptionist, teacher, librarian, maid, seamstress. In fact, when Rose complains to her mother about having to marry Cal Hockley for his money, her mother asks, "You want to see me working as a seamstress? Is that what you want? To see your fine things sold at auction, our memories scattered to the wind?" A woman could get by on her own, without ever getting married. But she could never be independently wealthy. She could never have a successful career that paid well. And girls at that time were not raised the way girls are today, with the knowledge that they are entitled by law to a chance to compete for the same jobs men do, and to earn the same salaries as men do. Rose could have left her family and started her own life. In fact, that is what she does at the end of the movie. But that is after she meets Jack and learns a lot about life and herself. At the beginning of the movie, going out on her own would have seemed daunting, if it had even occurred to her at all.


Anyone who would actually go on like that probably believes that there isn't much about him that is worth recommending. He probably doesn't feel smart, successful, loved or capable of being loved. If he points out what he considers to be a good quality, and does it often enough, it may give him a small amount of comfort in a world that is otherwise quite painful for him.Violence will just reinforce his feelings of worthlessness and make him turn more to self praise. There is probably nothing that you could possibly do that will help him, so perhaps the best thing would be to avoid him.AnswerI have no idea why you are even talking to this neighbor if he bothers you too much. I'd simply ignore him. There is more to this guy than meets the eye and I don't think it has anything to do with Narcissism. Stay clear of him! AnswerThis person is obviously conceited and stuck on himself. Although all narcissists posess this quality not everyone who behaves this way is a narcissist. You must have some kind of feeling for him or attraction if he is getting to you. The best way to handle him, narcissist or not is to just ignore him. He is like a six year old blowing up a big ballon, (his ego) and wants everyone to notice him. People are not going to change their behavior to keep from Frustrating you. In fact if they knew it was getting to you they would enjoy dong it all the more. Some other things that would cause someone to behave this way are: drug addiction (cocaine), mania phase of Bipolar disorder, Paranoid schizoprenia, or even something called "situational narcissitic syndrome" which is narcissistic behavior that is acute and transient as oposed to classical disorder. Also fellows into show business or do body building etc., they are appearance/body concious so believe others notice only that about them.A person with histrionic disorder is very body concious and actually in love with their physical body person, dressing provacatively and using their body image to manipulate others. A naricissist is very similar outwardly to histrionics. However, it is their false self image that they are fascinated with and they use others as a mirror to reflect back on themselve who they are. Vanity is a sin, and a big part of narcissist life. It isn't even themselves they love, just their false image.Whatever the case is, it is best to avoid people that are conceited and cultivate other kinds of relationships with the "other" NPD (normal personality disorder) By the time you get to know Mr. Ego enough to figure out if he is a classical narcissist he will have burned you already. Just keep your distance and observe how he treats others and how others behave towards him.


You don't. You hire competent legal counsel barred in the State you live in. He or she will listen to your situation and adopt an appropriate pre-trial and trial strategy.Note that even those mental health workers that consider mythomania a real condition admit that prevalence is quite low (one researcher shows only 1 case in 1000 in incarcerated juvenile offenders- a very high risk group- this would mean the general population would have far fewer), that the diagnosis is extremely controversial at best (meaning that few in the mental health field consider it a "condition" worthy of study or research) and the nature of mythomania is to lie at all times and with no discernible motive, not simply when it profits the sufferer to do so.Unless your spouse has a diagnosis of mythomania from a competent clinician, any judge is likely to consider your insistence that he or she is so as an act of histrionics on your part.It's very difficult. Only correspond with the liar through e-mail so that you have everything in writing and proof if you need to show it. Do not have phone conversations with the liar. I made that mistake. Only correspond in writing or through attorneys, period.Am going through this at the moment. Best way to expose is to obtain every single thread of evidence to disprove statements being made. Thia can be by way of credit card and bank statements, reciepts of purchases, calendar entries, even looking at when documents were created on a PC will give you an indication of events at that time. Also don't forget photographs, home videos, videohire listings, utilitiy and phone bills, right down to Dr's & prescriptions etc.Also, I have a ton of friends all writing letters detailing their own experiences with the woman and their perceptions. This gives courts a "helicopter view" of the whole situation.Does it work? We'll my 6 yr old son and I sincerely hope it does in the end.RegardsGet a voice recorder, they cant deny the voice they own & people are most likely to really "go off" in person or on the phone. But check your states laws on recording. I have one I use every time I speak with my ex, it's small enough to fit in my purse or pocket, cheap to but worth millions.(06/13/09) The use of a recorder depends on state law, but also you need to transcribe the tape. A recording can be prevented from entrance as evidence, until they commit perjury, but you can enter the transcription. You read it to them while they are on the stand and ask them to confirm it. If they deny it, than you hold up the tape. You may not even need to enter it into evidence as they their reaction may be enough.If it is legal to tape in your state, always use new tapes, never tapes used previously. Be sure the state date, time, and conditions under which the recording was made, at the end.


Erection of a totem pole is almost never done using modern methods, even for poles installed in modern settings on the outside of public and private buildings. Instead the traditional ceremony and process of erection is still followed scrupulously by most artists, in that a great wooden scaffold is built and hundreds of strong men haul the pole upright into its footing while others steady the pole from side ropes and brace it with cross beams. Once the pole is erected a potlatch is typically held where the carver is formally paid and other traditional activities are conducted. The carver will usually, once the pole is freestanding, perform a celebratory and propitiary dance next to the pole while wielding the tools used to carve it. Also, the base of the pole is burnt before erection to provide a sort of rot resistance, and the fire is made with chips carved from the pole. Totem poles are typically not well maintained after their erection. Traditionally once the wood rots so badly that it begins to lean and pose a threat to passersby, the pole is either destroyed or pushed over and removed. Older poles typically fall over during the winter storms that batter the coast. A totem pole rarely lasts over 100 years. A collapsed pole may be replaced by a new one carved more or less the same as the original, with the same subject matter, but this requires a new payment and potlatch and is thus not always done. The beliefs behind the lack of maintenance vary among individuals, but generally it is believed that the deterioration of the pole is representative of natural processes of decay and death that occur with all living things, and attempts to prevent this are seen as somehow denying or ignoring the nature of the world. This has not, however, prevented many people from occasionally renewing the paint on poles or performing further restorations, mostly because the expense of a new pole is beyond feasibility for the owner. Also, owners of poles who are not familiar with cultural traditions may see upkeep as a necessary investment for property, and ignore the philosophical implications. Source:Wikipedia If you want to just make a Totem without involving the histrionics, and want to know what tools to use, you can use small chain saws, (they make special chains and bars for wood-carving) small grinders, (4 to 4-1/2 inch grinders with special and varied cutting discs, wheels, including course sanding discs and flapper wheels) and of course the wood chisels, knifes, scrapers, hatchets. You must first have a pattern or idea of what you want, Wikipedia is an excellent site for ideas, (info, pictures, etc;) once your pattern is layed out, do the relief carving and then round off the forms to assimilate the 3 dimensional characters you want, smooth with 220 grit sandpaper, and apply a polyurethane finish.


Literally, a 'bed of roses' describes a formal or semi-formal flower bed dedicated to growing roses, in a private or public garden.Figuratively, as an idiom, the phrase means - of a person or animal - (living in, or being in) a state of luxury; an environment or situation of ease, comfort and pleasure.The idiom is said to originate with the English poet Christopher Marlowe's poem, 'The Passionate Shepherd to his Love', published postumously in 1599 (the poet died in 1593), but thought to have been written in his early years between the ages of sixteen and twenty three:'And I will make thee beds of rosesAnd a thousand fragrant posies,A cap of flowers and a kirtleEmbroidered all with leaves of myrtle;'Certainly the figurative use of the phrase 'bed of roses' traces back to 1590s English, though whether the poem came first or whether the phrase, already in use, inspired the poet cannot be known. In his reference to 'beds of roses' the poet isn't suggesting the shepherd's lady will lie, possibly with the shepherd, upon great, fragrant piles of rose-petals; Marlowe has the shepherd, instead, simply promising to dig flowerbeds and plant a lot of roses for the delight of his darling. The noun 'bed', describing a garden bed, as well as a shallow bed dug in the earth for sleeping (as many shepherds and other rural workers would have slept), goes back to Old English and Old Saxon, and roses - as well as other cultivated plants - were grown in beds long before Marlowe's shepherd offered to do some gardening for his love.Today, with literal beds of roses less commonly found in urban gardens, the imagery evoked by the phrase 'bed of roses' does not usually include vistas of rose-gardens; more popularly the images are of rose flowers, or petals, strewn or heaped lavishly about the place, frequently with people or pampered pets lying luxuriously in or upon them.Recent usage of the phrase include the 1996 movie, 'Bed of Roses', a romantic drama about a girl and a florist, and, in Australia, the television drama, 'Bed of Roses', a light one-hour drama series due to conclude in 2011, about a woman who loses her life of privilege and comfort and finds happiness and histrionics in a little country town. As well, musician Jon Bon Jovi composed and released a song titled 'Bed of Roses', ©1992.Rose petals are notably soft, and it is sometimes imagined that it would be very nice to sleep on them, although in practice this is rarely done because they won't last very long, and it would be ridiculously expensive to buy new rose petals every night. But nonetheless, the proverbial bed of roses is used as a metaphor for things being really nice. And things are not always really nice. Sometimes they are pretty bad. So, life is not always a bed of roses.Bed of roses means: * a pleasant or easy situation * a comfortable or luxurious position Like if someone was to say to you 'life's not all a bed of roses' they would mean that life isn't always easy and simpleThat is in our life is full of ups and downs. There will be both pleasure and sorrow. At times it may be a bed of thorns. so we can say life is not a bed of roses.This is a line of poetry - it means just what it sounds like. The shepherd is saying that he will make his girlfriend a bed of roses. People in love promise elaborate things, and poets come up with some pretty odd ideas.


Movies –> Review –> Full Story Iqbal By Taran Adarsh, IndiaFM Rate this article Votes : 12 Views : 2133 Rating : 4.67 1 2 3 4 5 Friday, August 26, 2005 Sports-based themes are rare in Bollywood. Although most Indians are obsessed with the game of cricket, only a handful of films, withcricket as the central theme, have been attempted here. Nagesh Kukunoor's IQBAL not only looks at the sport and the politics that come with it, the film also tells the story of an underdog who aspires to play on the national level. Convincingly narrated and sensitively handled, IQBAL succeeds in touching the core of your heart a number of times in those two hours. Most importantly, IQBAL works because you want the underdog, an 18-year-old deaf and mute village boy, to succeed in his endeavor. The youngster rises from the ashes, faces roadblocks at every step, falls time and again, but gets up and reaches the winning post in the end. All through this journey, the viewer empathizes with IQBAL since Kukunoor attempts to mirror the hardships a small-time guy faces when he dares to dream. Treating the story in the most realistic fashion, IQBAL works due to [a] Straight-out-of-life setting, [b] Never-say-die spirit of the underdog, [c] Deft execution of the subject, [d] Strong undercurrent of emotions throughout and [e] Expert performances by every member of the cast. The film tells the story of IQBAL [Shreyas Talpade], an 18-year-old boy. Born to a farmer [Yateen Karyekar], IQBAL lives in a small village somewhere in Andhra Pradesh. Cricket is his religion and he aspires to join the Indian cricket team some day. IQBAL faces obstacles at every step. His father dislikes cricket. IQBAL has no means or financial help to undergo training. But his school-going sister [Shweta Prasad] encourages him to pursue his dreams. Subsequently, IQBAL convinces a village drunkard, Mohit [Naseeruddin Shah], to coach him. But the road to victory is far from rosy. The rival coach [Girish Karnad] acts as a major impediment. ButIQBAL overcomes all obstacles in the end. After attempting films like HYDERABAD BLUES [and its sequel], ROCKFORD, BOLLYWOOD CALLING and 3 DEEWAREIN, Kukunoor steps into a fresh domain with IQBAL. IQBAL not only looks at the sport [cricket] and unravels the story of a youth, it also tells the story of an underdog who succeeds in life. Although a number of Bollywood films have highlighted the meteoric rise of those who start from ground level, IQBAL is different in the sense that not once does it tend to get formulaic. The director narrates the story in the most realistic fashion; the hurdles that crop up at every step and how the protagonist solves it seem straight out of life and are easily identifiable. Right from the time IQBAL practices all alone in a field, to the time he convinces a drunkard to coach him, till the finale, IQBAL is like any one of us, who has been ridiculed, has faced hardships and oppositions all along, never got the support he desired, but who silences his detractors and races past all those who attempt to pull him down. In the triumph of IQBAL lies the triumph of the film! The constant bickering at home, the relationship between IQBAL and his father, mother and sister, the clandestine training sessions, the dirty politics that the budding cricketer faces and the finale -- these are moments that cannot be erased from your memory! But the film is not without minor blemishes -- • One, the footage devoted to the training [Naseer-Shreyas] gets cumbersome after a point. • Two, the post-interval portions get quite slow-paced. • Three, the second half is lengthy and can easily do with some trimming. • Four, you don't feel euphoric in the penultimate cricket match, like you did while watching the cricket match in LAGAAN. As a storyteller, IQBAL is Kukunoor's most accomplished work to date. Kukunoor has matured into a fine storyteller and this is evident when he handles the emotional moments with flourish. The strong dose of emotions would melt even the stone-hearted, no two opinions on that! Besides, Kukunoor has extracted superb performances from the entire cast. Although IQBAL stars two doyens -- Naseeruddin Shah and Girish Karnad -- in pivotal roles, the four actors you notice aren't big names, yet deliver sterling performances. IQBAL belongs to Shreyas Talpade from start to end. Although the actor has featured in a few films in the past, IQBAL is akin to a re-launch vehicle for him, giving him ample scope to display histrionics. And the actor hits a boundary this time! Cast in a role where he has to convey through gestures, Shreyas deserves distinction marks for living the role to the optimum. Matching Shreyas at every step is the supremely talented Shweta Prasad, who made her debut in MAKDEE. While she stole the show in that film, Shweta does something similar in IQBAL, matching an actor like Naseeruddin Shah in some sequences. Another round of awards awaits the youngster afterIQBAL. Yateen Karyekar is fantastic as the helpless father, who shares a bitter-sweet relationship with his son. Pratiksha Lonkar, as IQBAL's mother, is natural all the way. Naseer is wonderful, as always, while Karnad, seen after a gap in Hindi films, is truly first-rate in a role with negative shades. Kapil Dev is okay in a brief appearance. On the whole, IQBAL is a well-made film that caters to an audience that prefers watching realistic films. At the box-office, the film should be patronized by the multiplex crowd at metros mainly. Needs a strong person-to-person recommendation for it to hold on its own!


Having Lived with a borderline NPD there are a few key differences... A true narcissist is almost totally wrapped up in themselves, and the entire world revolves around their needs and desires. The borderline I lived with had moments of minor concern for others, to a point of actually seeming to care how I felt or what I needed... She bought me a large tool box for Christmas, and had to lug it into the front room. It was to large to lift, but she managed to wrap it sitting on the floor. The tol box was a great thought for a present, but, I was constantly reminded of how much she cared for me because of the extra effort she had to go through to get it into the house and wrap it etc... and she usually reminded me when others were around... just to re-enforce my acknowledgement of how much she cared about me because of what she did... subtle but mostly it was about her... Thank the stars I am living alone now... after 10 yeaars I just had to 'walk away' from that abusive relationship...but still got a lawyer to protect my interest in the material properties...Think of a continuum, with Sensitivity at one extreme end and Insensitivity at the other.A Narcissist is close to the Insensitivity end, but a Borderline is close to the Sensitivity end.A Narcissist is halfway psychopathic. The difference is that they do have normal emotions. But they have no empathy.A Borderline can often be empathic to a fault, taxing his or her strength and putting others before him or herself until it becomes health-threatening.Borderlines have an extremely alert cerebral cortex and are easily excited. And they are most often excruciatingly sensitive. Often, they also have an overbearing and self-punishing conscience.AnswerThere are many similarities. Actually the Borderline and Narcissist both are wrapped up in their own universe with little or no concern for others and how their behavior affects others. However the N is wrapped up in his own self image and buries his emotions while the BPD is wrappd up in their imediate needs and have no control over their own emotions. The BPD is capable of empathy however because they have feelings for themselves as far as pain rejection etc. She only seems to empathize with you for a while only and *ONLY IF* it pertains to her universe. NPD expects others to revolve around his universe as if to be a satellite dependent on worshipping him as a god. While the BPD wraps her universe around you as if to FUSE your very existense to themselves, you are her universe. Both NPD and BPD are extremely fearfull of abandonment but handle it in two different ways. BPD will cling to you while the NPD ever concious of his self image will abandon you before you have a chance to abandon him. Both of them have excessive Rage emotions built up. The BPD will dump on you while the NPD dumps you alltogether. ( I use male for NPD and female for BPD because that is how the genders are likey to be diagnosed - however either geneder can suffer from either disorder)BPD has an arrested emotional development set at age three while NPD is set at age six. Some authorities suggest its all all along the same continuim as Narcissistic Personality Disorder. With NPD at one end and BPD at the other. They are both in the same "B" cluster of personality disorders also with histrionic and antisocial personality disorders. IN fact many BPDS have been co-morbidly diagnosed as also having NPD. The degree of functionality among three of them is something like this Histrionics are more able to function in society than narcisssists who in turn fare better than Borderlines.Those close to Borderline or Narcissist will find ways to deal with them are very much the same. Also the effect they have on others close to them are stikingly similar. Manipulating, lies, deception, self centeredness. and most of all a complete lack of concern for anyone but themselves. They just chose to cover it up in different ways.I know all this because my so called "mother" was a full blown (diagnosed) Borderline Personality Disorder and eventually got locked up because of it. I have also had two "relationships" with NPDs decades apart. Looking back the characteristics of them were nearly identical to Mommie dearest. They just concaeled their true intentions better. The first one I had no realization what was going on until it was too late and I'd been burned - Bad. the second one i found out just in time and GOT OUT!Anyone that has been raised by a borderline or narcissist will have a tendency to attract N's because they have already been "trained". If you even think you are getting involved with one of either get out now. They are nothing more than a parasite set to suck the very life out of you.***Many people with BPD can and do recover if they are willing to get help and examine how their actions have affected others. Because they can empathize - just like a 3 year old can - it is possible for them to "grow up" mentally and emotionally with the help of a therapist/psychiatrist/support group. Doctors used to believe that is was very difficult to treat BPDs but are now finding that those diagnosed in their 20s often overcome many of their BPD behaviors by their 30s. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ABANDON a loved one with BPD. It's just like dealing with an alcoholic - you may have to pull away in order for them to get help, but once they do, they can see the error in their ways.i was diagnosed Borderline and i have almost recovered now. its taken 7 years. but i didn't try find my identity in another person, i felt i didnt really have an identity and didnt like myself so i tried to use other things to gain a sense of being. at the same time i often felt very in need of compliment sto bolster my fluctuating ego.AnswerBoth disorders tend to over-emphasize the centrality of the person who has the disorder in the wider scope. The differences tend to be in terms of motivation and the payoff.BPD tend to be heavily driven by a bipolar fear - fear of being hurt through intimate exposure of themselves to others, and fear of being isolated and abandoned. One may argue that these are two sides of the same fear, but with regards to the social expression of this fear, it results in rapid and unpredictable flip-flopping between adoration and repulsion.NPD tend to be heavily driven by autoerotic interest - pleasing themselves takes on a higher priority than fearing retribution, although high profile NPDs also tend to share paranoia - they seek to defend their perfect image of themselves and are easily frustrated by confrontations or challenges to their self-image.Both disorders can result in the individual losing all sense of boundaries of self due to lack of emotional discipline. The difference is often that BPD will recognize and admit that they have feelings of inadequacy and will even use expression of those feelings to prevent isolation. NPD will never recognize such feelings - the external world serves either to support their grandiosity or it cowers in secretive jealousy.Both disorders also include the attitude that they are special cases and therefore have special entitlements or are above the law. In the case of BPD, this can result in erratic stalking behavior or pre-emptive defense tactics that come off to stable individuals as excessive and/or overtly aggressive. In the case of NPD, this results in exploitative behavior towards any who are perceived as weak, poor, naive, etc. Many sexual abuse cases involve NPD - often with children who were also raised by NPD parents and are thereby groomed to respond to the emotional needs of adults. NPD patients often struggle with pornography and narcotics addictions.Both disorders utilize deceit. BPD will unconsciously rescript historical events in order to justify their behavior and avoid shame and ostracism. Deceit for a BPD is closer to an involuntary trauma response. NPD will consciously fabricate historical events to portray a reflection of their ideal self-image. Deceit for an NPD is a form of willful self-delusion.BPD has slightly better treatment odds than NPD - though both disorders are very challenging for any therapist to treat. In most cases treatment stops either because of the client's grandiosity or paranoia. At times treatment stops when clients become too much of a drain on the therapist's psyche or time schedule.
