Re: Histrionic/narcissitic personality disorder

Hi Steve, I'm not sure how helpful I can be but I'll give you my limited perspective on what you have described below. It seems like you've tried a number of ways to work on the issues that you have within the relationship and they have not resulted in any improvement. Have you tried getting psychol...

Re: Painfully lonely and exhausted *trig*

Thanks for another very thoughtful reply and it's actually refreshing to have someone other than a therapist to bounce ideas off of.

Re: Painfully lonely and exhausted *trig*

Thanks for your reply and what you have suggested definitely hasn't come across as tactless. I'm grateful you have put forward a suggestion like that.
