my ex of 5 years was diagnosed with this disorder as a teenager, and believed he was a sociopath when we were together. he was in his mid 30’s. but i never in all my years of dating him saw any signs that he did have this disorder. no lying, manipulation. i think that my ex needs to be reasessed by a doctor. i believe if he was, he would be diagnosed as normal.

Hi – I’d contact NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill), website:

http://www.nami.org/

You should be able to find a local chapter and links to more resources in your area on that site.  As far as I know, (I have a master’s in a mental health-related field), personality disorders are difficult to treat, and long-term. It sounds like you’re already doing a great job of supporting this person, and they’re lucky to have you around.

NAMI is amazing! You should really look into it. My brother was recently diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, and NAMI has tons of support groups you can attend or be apart of online. It’s amazing how many people have similar struggles. their are groups for you to attend with the one directly affected, or even without them and with others family and friends. They provide information for you to help understand what the person goes through on a daily basis. For me it’s a lot to handle at times and I break down, but the diseases are very different. I hope you find a great group. I’m willing to help in any way I can as well, i feel for you, and take the situation to heart.
