“Hear No Evil Speak No Evil” by Shadowmarim on Deviantart
For a long time I thought I suffered from The Trifecta of Victimhood (largely brought on by my lifetime of living as prey in a jungle of predatory narcissism): Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Avoidant Personality Disorder (AvPD) and Aspergers Syndrome. Try living with that combination. Never a dull moment, but I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s still better than being a Narc. [my thoughts on that last remark after my dive down the rabbit hole: HAHAHAHAHA! LMAO!]
Why the laughter?
Because for awhile, from about August 2015 through December I was absolutely convinced I was really a Covert Narcissist.
It’s very confusing, but thank God I’m not one. My therapist doesn’t think I do, but Complex PTSD, BPD and Avoidant PD together can look an awful lot like Covert Narcissism.
I also suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (fall/winter type) and was recently given a new diagnosis of C-PTSD (replacing the BPD).
