August 12, 2017: Question #4 – Antisocial Personality Disorder (Part 2)

Cluster B Personality Disorders - BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder), NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder), HPD (Histrionic Personality Disorder), and APD (Antisocial Personality Disorder)

Good Evening Everyone!!!  Did you have a pleasant Saturday?  Depending on where you live, I guess determines the activities you did today, right?  It was so dreary outside today, I ended up waking around 12:30 pm.  Of course, it didn’t help by staying up until after 3 am, (not by choice, mind you). As soon as I awoke, I went to Peanut’s cage to check on the status of the new perch, and if it was ever used. Unfortunately, he was still at the bottom of the cage.  I got dressed and took my roommate’s dog “Pinky” out for a walk, and then fed her.  Afterward, I then went back to Peanut’s cage to yet, try, try, try again to convince him that the new perch in his cage was safe.  I rubbed my hand over the new perch with hopes he would find that it was safe for Mommy to touch, it would be safe for him.  Yet, he didn’t want any parts of this new perch.  I took a moment and went about the day cleaning, then on Facebook & Pinterest.  After 45 minutes of giving Peanut a break, I proceeded to try again.  This time, I got him to sit on it for at least 10 minutes.  But, after that…He was back at the bottom of the cage.  I have a very strong suspicion that this is going to take a great deal of patience between the both of us.
The next project was contacting my dear friend Jason to assist my mother in a dilemma that involved her new computer.  It’s only 1 month old, and here she is having difficulty with a threat of a virus.   Almost an hour & half later, it seems that the problem was solved by Jason.  Here this is not an occupation of his, and he is working long distance by way of a three-way phone conversation, I was even more impressed than I was, to begin with.  A shout out to Jason…  Thank you so very much for helping my Mom.

Question #4  

What are my views and/or opinions on alcohol & drug use?

SIMPLE.  DO NOT DO IT!!!  (Drugs) unless prescribed by a physician, don’t even give it another thought.  (Alcohol) Well, if you have just started to follow me, or just recently started learning about me, you would know that this,  along with the combination of mental illness nearly ended my life entirely.  I have seen too many people either die or ended up frying out their brain.  I have seen too many people become homeless for the same reason.  I realize that not all people have the same affliction with alcohol, but if you suffer from a mental illness, or have simply drunk too much, and consistently do so over, and over again…  You have a problem.  Please seek help right away!!!! 
 Psychopath Vs. Sociopath visual representation and statistics For the record sherlock is NOT a sociopath or a psychopath.
I left off yesterday stating that I would get back to Sociopath & Psychopathic traits.  This is stemming off the Antisocial Personality Disorders.  There are really no differences between either. They all fall under the following categories.
  • The tendency to be smooth, engaging, charming, slick and persuasive.  
  • Neither has difficulty with charm.  They are not shy, self-conscious, or afraid to say anything.
  • Grandiose self-worth and inflated view of one’s abilities and self-assured, opinionated, cocky, and braggart.
  • Both can be pathological liars, conning, and manipulating.  
  • Both can be shrewd, crafty, cunning, sly, and clever.
  • Emotional poverty or a limited range of depth of feelings; interpersonal coldness in spite of signs of gregariousness.
My Step-father was this person.  He was not only full of himself but believed to better than any of the other family members.  He liked to egg us (or me at least) on in ways that I would feel degraded in my intellect, or abilities.  This had been his third marriage when he married my mom.  His own family was not close to him because of his shifty styles.  His own brothers warned my mother of his past, but she gave him the benefit of the doubt.  Unfortunately, my mom, his company where he was employed, and the rest of the family (including his brothers) all learned he was a con artist.  He embezzled thousands upon thousands of dollars from his company.  One day my mother went home for lunch, and found a note on the kitchen countertop, basically stating he was out of there.  He emptied the bank accounts and left his clothes, personal belongings, but took the brand new vacuum cleaner.  (We made jokes about him taking the vacuum cleaner, and stated it was for him to make a clean get-away).  He actually did speak to my mom thereafter but felt no remorse for his actions even though she was losing her home.  We learned later, that he escaped to Arkansas.  His company did not go after him due to something about insurance reasons, and the worst part of all of this is my mother to this day is considered still married to this asshole.  For all we know, he has done this to yet another victim along the way since he has done this very same thing to his own families in the past.
If you feel that someone is behaving in this similar way, or you know a family member that behaves in this tremendously harsh manner, keep clear.  Never let your guard down.  DO NOT TRUST THIS PERSON AS FAR AS YOU CAN THROW THEM.  Chances are, is that this person whether it be family or friends that have this disorder will end up in jail eventually.  I at least hope and pray this would have happened to my step-father.
Okay, my friends…  It is time for me to close.  It’s almost 10 pm, and I’m pretty beat.  I hope you had an enjoyable Saturday, and have a pleasant evenings rest.  I will catch up with all of you tomorrow. Take Care of Yourselves & God Bless.

  1. Your step-father sounded like a complete nightmare yet your mother was the complete opposite. I’ve given up on thinking karma will sort things out – or perhaps I hate waiting.
    In all of this though you have fallen on the right side of the fence and learnt right from wrong I’m sure.
    Have a great Sunday and if you see your mother today give her a hug and tell her that was sent from England

  2. Thank you for sharing this. I didn’t realise the differences between psychopath and sociopath could be so pronounced. I’m so sorry to hear your mum had to go through all that. 😦 I hope things picked up for her after he was out of the picture.
