The Psychopathic Narcissist's World

It's estimated that 60 million people in US are negatively affected by someone else's pathology. Odds are that the areas of your life that are causing you harm are intersecting with these sick fucks, and that you have friends and family who are victims of their crimes. This isn't stuff you can visionboard away, so here are some articles to help you identify and avoid:

Sam Vaknin's photo journal explaining Narcissistic Personality Disorders.

The Institution for Relational Harm Reduction tackles the other side of the coin: Hyper Empathy.  
Whoopsie. That looks familiar. I once asked one of my oldest friends what she thought my number one problem in relationships was. She said I was too understanding.

Male Survivors.

Adult Children of Narcissistic, Psychopathic, and Borderline Parents (pretty much every second generation in Hollywood).

One of my all-time favorite "things that make you go hmm" articles links B Complex to crime:
Who Does That? Part 1
Who Does That? Part 2
Talk about lightbulb moment. If you have people in your life with personality disorders you have to read them. If you've found yourself questioning your sanity, or trying to empathize with criminals; just remember to ask yourself: WHO DOES THAT?
