The following blog is a fictional dramatization of real or make-believe events. Any resemblance to characters or real persons is probably a coincidence. Any similarities to actual events is not my fault. Ok, most of it isn’t fictional, but according to some, my whole world is fictional – you can be your own judge.
I survived a marriage to just what the tag line says: a narcissistic sociopath. It was one of the strangest events in my life. You cannot apply logic to crazy. The weird part is, two of my girl friends are going through the exact same thing. A few of the details are different, but crazy is crazy. I have learned that personality disorders are a lot different than mental illness. The latter is a chemical imbalance or physical impairment of the brain, the former is learned behavior that one believes is normal and fine. Mental illness can be treated.
If you are not familiar with the definitions of narcissist, sociopath, psychopath, mental illness or personality disorders, I implore you to please educate yourself. We do throw the terms around loosely. However, the rate at which they are in the population is disturbing. I have learned a lot on my journey, maybe I can share a bit with you.
