This is one of the best articles I've read on this important subject: connection. Thank you to the author for publishing it. I wholeheartedly agree with everything mentioned here.

Comment on Gaslighting Revisited: A Closer Look at This Manipulation Tactic by Anonymous

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 04:26:26 +0000

It's not just relationships. I was in graduate school to become a professional counselor, not realizing I had an undiagnosed social disability that actually prevents me (I think), from being able to become one. The large faculty of licensed mental health professionals at a well-known university and a highly regarded program, gaslighted me for years hoping that I would quit the program and profession, but could never explain what they problem was or how to fix it. They twisted everything I said or did and "documented" it to use against me, then ducked, dodged, denied, or made it my fault when I confronted them. I refused to leave by choice, so they eventually succeeded in forcing me out and it's completely destroyed my life! Not only have they convinced me of all the classic victim beliefs, but they've convinced me it was all my own fault because I somehow "made" them do this to me. Not to mention they knew exactly what they were doing, and I'm drowning in student loans I took out. I paid for my own abuse at the hands of mental health professionals because I followed my dream to become one, and they got away consequence-free. I know for a fact I'm not their first victim, especially among those with disabilities, but they protect themselves from being sued. They've probably been getting away with it for decades. Part of me can't believe or figure out how I was taken advantage of like this, and the rest of me knows that it wasn't my fault, but that doesn't undo the damage it's done to my life and my sanity.

Comment on Seeing a World of Possibilities: The INTP Personality Type by YM

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 03:29:20 +0000

This what exactly i feel and I went through different personality tests to fully understand myself. Intially the results were either INFP or INTJ. Since i was in doubt about the J and P, took a. test for infj and infp and got infp, which proved my p (not j). Then took a test for infj and intj and got intj, which proves my t (not f). Then i was wondering whether i am INTP and start investigated. Surprisingly, i indeed was almost 100% INTP. Every discription was in line with myself. I felt like i finally got myself. Now, i more than ever confidently believe that i am INTP and this understanding helps me a lot to my career path, relationship and most importantly what motivates and drives me. Thank you for sharing this wonderful article.

Comment on 5 Tips For Restoring Zest to a Stalling Relationship by Mandalyn

Dr Simon, I think there needs to be an additional paragraph on this topic, because, If one of the partners has character-disturbed qualities, then trying to do all these things is not going to work any miracles, it will only cause increased frustration since more time spent with these types of people is just more nerve-wracking insanity.

How does one steer a child away from developing in this direction when the father displays such behavior?

Ive read just a couple of your short articles, and have noticed that you repeat the same process of reminding readers not to Contextualize the subject matter as an 'either/or' proposition. Perhaps some are not 'close' readers and miss this

Comment on Neurosis vs. Character Disorder: Levels of Internal Discomfort by Marjie

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 19:52:44 +0000

Hi I'm not a professional, but I was engaged to an aggressive paranoid and having been in perfect health and fitness my whole life, contracted chronic illnesses that left me in pain for 7 years. He stalked me for 6.5 years after I broke off and left him. Eventually he was convicted and I never hear from him again. The frequency and intensity of my pain abated. I still have physical illness, but I'm not even close to being disabled by it anymore.

Comment on Neurosis vs. Character Disorder: Contrasting Needs in Therapy by Marjie

Find a psychiatrist who you are certain is more intelligent than you, and who has at least 20 years of experience. He or she could serve as the authority figure (in my opinion because I've been in your shoes ) you need. Also, after the acute questions about yourself and your character aren't so new, don't believe that you don't need to'check in' with this person every couple months

That's very insightful and lends a perspective I haven't considered. My family has a deeply character-disordered member- who is an MD. He is malevolent and sadistic, paranoid and thin skinned, and is ruining our family

Comment on How Will You Know if You’re Going Emotionally Bankrupt? by MD

That feeling of being numb I think is a coping mechanism.. take time for yourself I never knew what people meant by being numb .. but I wonder if it means the same to everyone? By numb it doesn't mean you can't feel emotions or you can't feel moments of Other emotions but perhaps it means you feel totally disconnected from feeling connected our out put capacity is drained ? Does it seem to have earased even the previous sense of connections or does it reveal you "feel" like you were ever connected at all. Is that it?
