Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is where a person idolizes themselves and has a higher self worth. It's hard to diagnose because narcissists do not believe anything can be wrong with them. They have a hard time admitting they have a problem or if they've made a mistake.

Symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder are characterized as (all symptoms are provided by the MayoClinic):
- having an exaggerated sense of self importance
- expecting to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
- exaggerating your achievements and talents
- being preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty, or the perfect mate
- believing that you are superior and can only be understood by or associate with equally special people
- requiring constant admiration
- having a sense of entitlement
- expecting special favors and unquestioning compliance with your expectations
- taking advantage of others to get what you want
- having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
- being envious of others and believing others envy you
- behaving in an arrogant or haughty manner

You may be thought of as selfish, foolish, and self-righteous. For more information, visit: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/narcissistic-personality-disorder/basics/symptoms/con-20025568

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder

There are two phases of Bipolar Disorder: the Manic Phase and the Depressive Phase. People who suffer from this disorder have extreme mood swings that go from one of the two phases to the next. The Manic Phase is generally the happier phase, and the Depressive Phase is the opposite.

In the Manic Phase, a bipolar person may feel euphoria, have an inflated self-esteem, and take unnecessary risks. In the Manic Phase, they feel powerful and invincible. They can be more aggressive and hyperactive, and often experience an increased sex drive during this time.

In the Depressive Phase, a bipolar person will feel the exact opposite. They will experience symptoms of Depression, such as feelings of worthlessness and guilt. They may also frequently think of death and/or suicide. They may suffer from physical pain and fatigue, and feel a lack of energy. They may also have a lower appetite and decreased sex drive.
