Narcissistic Personality Disorder affects between 0.5-1% of the population. 50-75% of those are men. Sounds relatively minimal, right? Wrong. Those percentages are only those who have been properly diagnosed. My father, like SO many others, have not been properly diagnosed. But then, why should he go to a psychiatrist? There's nothing wrong with him. I'm the one with problems, just ask him.
Yet another thing he refuses to believe is that he is a hoarder. His
father was a hoarder, so you'd think that seeing his filth and having to
clean it up would have clicked in his brain that he shouldn't do things
like keep the broken ice maker from the fridge that hasn't even been
inside the freezer in around ten years.
fourteen million (nice and specific, huh?). That's how many people are
compulsive hoarders in America. But again... he's not diagnosed because
he sees no problem (that's the narcissism talking).
Then there's this.
I won't even get in to that.
But I am one hundred percent done with his crap. I have applied for a job that will allow me to move out. Here's hoping I get it and that it works out!
Side note: Did anyone get the Doctor Who reference, or am I just a lone geek?
