A person who has been sexually abused as a child doesn't even realize the damage has already occured mentally. Either the child will keep this abuse a secret or if the family should find out it is kept secret. Either way the child usually never wins and is never sent for psychological treatment in their younger years. Sexually abused people live as if there is a hollow in the pit of their very soul and sometimes it takes years to surface. They never really get over it, but with psychological counselling they can certainly live normal lives. Sexually abused people are also very guarded (to protect themselves) and thus, they may come off as being narcissistic, but they really aren't. They seldom mean to hurt others, but because of their sexual abuse they usually can't find a happy medium with a sexual partner. Trust is a big issue here. Marcy When you know better, you do better. If he's dealing with his past, there is no reason to continue the bad behavior in the present or the future. Tell him to keep it in his pants or dump him. It's just an excuse, not a reason if he keeps on cheating on you.

How does soma relate to the meanings of autosome and somatic cells?

The soma, from the Greek word meaning body, is the entire body - except the germ (sex) cells. This is related to the meanings of autosome and somatic because: Autosome refers to chromosomes that are not sex chromosomes. Somatic cells are all cells that are not sex cells (gametes/germ cells).

What are density dependent inhibition and anchorage dependence and how do they relate to cancerous cells?

Basically, regular cells, otherwise known as somatic cells, abide by these two inhibitors. A normal, healthy somatic cell will grow and divide until it meets an impassible barrier, such as the edge of a petri dish. This is density dependent inhibition. Such cells also have to be touching some kind of surface in order for the cell to begin to divide. This is known as anchorage dependency. Both of these relate to cancer cells as these cell do not follow these two rules. The cells will continue to divide until they are killed, as they do not follow any of these inhibitors.

How does Narcissism relate to misogyny which is the hatred of and desire to control women?

Even psychiatrists can't answer this question. A Narcissist has a deep core in them that is extremely complex (many things in one) and their behavior is usually learned from their environment (family.) Example: A young man or woman growing up can be over-shadowed by a mother/father that never lets him/her grow up, or a cruel mother/father or one that deserts him/her, thus, he/she begins to hate the opposite sex. A Narcissist is about control and therefore when a woman/man speaks of love for them the Narcissist feels owned or possessed and they don't like the feeling because they need that total control. Narcissist almost always choose submissive type personalities (easier to control and play head games with.) This DOES NOT mean that a shy or loving mate of a Narcissist is weak at all. The Narcissist is simply the preditor and the victim is their prey. Some Narcissists can hate women or vice-versa with a vengence, but then again, many men/women can hate the opposite sex and not be a Narcissist. Some Narcissists adore women and really try to have a normal relationship, but of course it always fails because of the control issue.

How can an ex-wife of a narcissistic husband be mentally helped?

If your ex-husband is a narcissist ( has NPD) then I highly suggest you seek counseling or a recovery group. There is even some NPD related forum groups online. Depending how long you lived with an N (narcissist) and how you dealt with his disorder affecting your life may determine how co-dependent you are. Co-dependency has taken on a bad connotation lately, but let me express to you that is merely a means of describing how you adjusted your own behavior to live with a person who has a disorder. What counseling or group therapy seeks to accomplish is to make you aware of your own behavior and how it may have been affected by living with an N. I speak from personal experience when I say that living with a N ( for 22 yrs) drain everything you have and you will the support of others who can relate to your situation to help you get back on your feet. Best wishes and Good luck.
