    I Was Once Diagnosed With Histrionic And Narcissistic Personality Disorders.

    I hate being called weird, immoral, difficult, etc. I hate being unliked. I react with rage to that. Yet I feel that I am not very nice and I have a low self image. I have a lifetime of bullying due to social and intellectual impairments. I didn't fight back. Then when old age...

    I cannot count how many young men I have lured with nothing more than flirty text messages and tight dress. If I take a particular liking to a boy, I can have him wrapped around my finger in at least a month. It's as though I have a collection of men who would date/sleep with me...
