Oh yes I agree she seems to be NPD. I was just wondering if Narc's can also have depression when something doesn't go as planned. Either way she's a hot mess and I'm sorry you've had such little support. :( She is and even though I kind of handled her in my teens and twenties, then I got my own lif...

KitLily your storie is certainly ringing all of my narcissist warning bells! I'm sorry you've had to deal with this.


Yes. When someone told me to look up the definition of a narcissist, I ticked off most of the traits! It was like reading about my mother on a list :lol:

Eh, I think I'll give up. Friendship is too complicated for me. I'm going to stay as the cat that walked on her own.

We fortunately have one of the best and unbiased government broadcasters in the world in the Australian broadcasting commission. The ABC's journalists have regularly won awards for outstanding journalism. Good, well done! Make sure you fight to keep it that way and don't descend into apathy like th...

Thing is, male sexuality and female sexuality are very different. Even if a man is asexual, he will have to deal with his sexuality, if he wants it or not. There is no off switch, and I'm not going to castrate myself. If it isn't dealt with regularly, it can cause physiological issues, e.g. painful...

I assumed pregnancy and motherhood would mean that I'd make good friends as we moved through the challenges together. Didn't happen :roll: Problem is, pregnancy and motherhood are individual/family-oriented challenges, not group challenges (outside the family). So, they don't really lend themselves...

Yesterday, we took our daughter and 3 friends to a pizza restaurant for her birthday. They sat at one table together, we sat at another so we didn't cramp their style. Then they went shopping and we went shopping separately. She said she had a wonderful time catching up with her old school friends a...

But lads start watching it at a very young age because it's easily available and it distorts their view of women and sex, IMO. It's not that hard for a woman to teach their inexperienced partners proper behaviours, and teach them what they really like. Just say "access denied" when the me...

I've never thought my mother had depression. Until fairly recently she had a large group of friends, she was popular and got invited everywhere. She was always off doing something with them, holidays, parties, dinners, she was always full of energy. I was always just the dull, boring daughter who ta...

The BBC *used* to be left wing...but now it's in the pocket of the government. They have right wing people on every programme, they don't report the truth. They've really gone downhill. You are explaining it rationally The British right have, however, long waned the BBC is a bastion of socialism ht...

People are so weird. I can't understand not being devoted to your own children and grandchildren. What's wrong with these people? My mother has always been wanting me to do more and more but when I do it, she has moved on e.g. she wanted me to get married and leave home. Eventually I did, but she wa...

I explained this here , a while back, and then recently added some further thoughts here . Feel free to reply to me in that thread, which I have revived. Briefly, her model involves only two of what I consider to be the four foundations of friendship, whereas I think a friendship needs to start wit...

Sorry you're still dealing with this, KL. If it's a cognitive decline and not physical, she's likely got a lot of time left for you to visit. There's no rush unless the staff tell you so. My ex-MIL babysat once at 4 months, and said the baby was "a going concern" and "too much work&q...

self care always first! Yes, I am only just learning that in my 50s! :) When I was young, my mother's needs and wants always came first. I always had to tiptoe round her and hope I wouldn't set her off in a tantrum. Of course whatever I did was wrong so she was always having tantrums and 'getting r...
