Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with self help steps you can take to fight this condition.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)

NPD Signs And Symptoms:

You're probably reading this to find out about someone else, because someone suffering NPD would not think they have a problem.  An NPD sufferer might play along to satisfy a family member but they know it's the family member with the problem.  In fact, every problem faced by a narcissist is someone else's fault.  NPD is not considered a true personality disorder because the pain suffered is not debilitating.  In fact, the nature of the disorder often causes the narcissist to outperform others to show his superiority.  Many are in leadership, performing arts, and political positions because of their need to have the spotlight on themselves.

Probably the biggest symptom of NPD is the absolute lack of concern for anyone else...their feelings...even their health and safety.  To a narcissist, other people exist only to make them feel important.  Since most people can't imagine anyone so heartless, it's hard to see these traits until they show themselves in an unavoidable way.  For instance, an NPD father who just lost his 10-year-old daughter to cancer would talk about how hard his (not his daughter's) struggle was.  His grief might be profound, but it is all about himself.  It's easiest to recognize a NPD sufferer not from their pain but from the pain of everyone around them.  A reliable symptom of NPD is, nobody likes the SOB that has least no one who has been around them very long.   

NPD Causes:

There is little hard evidence of exactly what causes NPD, probably because those suffering don't think they need help, so their problem goes untreated.  Some speculate it's from some childhood trauma, which is as likely as anything else.

NPD Treatment:

Sadly, because so little study has been done, no real treatments have been developed.  The narcissist is usually functional, so the real sufferers are those around them.  In fact, you'll often find many of them in treatment, trying to learn how to deal with the narcissist.

NPD Self Help:

No point in telling a narcissist how to help himself because he believes he doesn't need help.  If you're looking for a way to cope with a loved one who has NPD, you can help yourself...literally.  Your love is a tool the narcissist will use to drain you of your life and happiness.  Imagine an NPD person as a black hole in space, having nothing of its own, it literally sucks everything around it into its blackness.  The only thing you can do about a black hole is stay away from it.  Until the Narcissist finally sees there is no one around and is forced to look inside and seek professional help, there is nothing other humans can do to help, except stay away.

Total Healing:

Mental Health conditions can be frustrating and painful...especially when they involve people we love.  Many illnesses are "incurable" from the medical standpoint and require healing from God.  If you want God's help with this or any problem, go to Help From God.
