My mother, the psychopath

Psychopathy is so hot right now—or so popular culture would have you believe.

In the past 15 years, public awareness of psychopathy and other antisocial personality disorders has rocketed.

  1. I read your post. I am sorry this happened to you, but let me point out psychopathy is a spectrum and not everyone is the same. Also from the way you describe your mother she seems an engulfing narcissistic mother mainly with some psychopath traits. Not excusing psychopaths here, just saying. Personally and from many other psychopaths i am acquainted, we do not crave to dominate and control others just for the sake of controlling and having human puppets like a narcissist. While cluster B’s thrive on control, for psychopaths control is a way to obtain a goal while for narcissists control IS the goal. Just my two cents.
