I’m literally getting fed up with memes of this ilk.

As a counterbalance, I was married to a woman who was court-mandated diagnosed with NPD. This was a requirement during the divorce, that both of us submit to a psych evaluation.

My CPTSD symptomatic reaction to her abuse is similar to what is described here. I’ve been accused of narcissistic behavior because of this.

I’ve been diagnosed with bipolar and CPTSD, and not NPD. My symptomatic behavior is not abusive, it’s defensive.

Considering my history at the pleasure of an abusive ex-wife, being accused of NPD is painful and insulting.
