In an attempt to shed light on what it is like to be with a person who is disordered—or as the layman would call it “crazy”—I’m offering a list of the two types of mental health afflictions and what it is like to be in relationship with someone who is suffering from them.This list does not infer that one party is the “healthy” party and the other is disordered.Or better yet, listen to the rhetoric of Congress and watch them in action (or should I say inaction).If you recognize your own borderline characteristics, what should you do?
Yet, there is a widespread psychological disorder that most people know little or nothing about. Because its symptoms are largely interpersonal, causing many to view it as a relationship issue, not a mental health one.
The second are personality disorders such as borderline, narcissistic, sociopathic, and obsessive-compulsive.
They are both a type of mental and emotional prison; and when dating someone who has either (or both) type of disorder, it can feel like being caged.
~Mark Twain We are a psychologically sophisticated society.
Emotional difficulties are now shared openly — not only by celebrities but by your average person.
