    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...
