I am delighted to follow up with you on the question of psychopathy regarding my wife. I am a physician who has a wife who is a nurse pratitioner. Our marriage lasted about 11 years and was punctuated with bizzare behavior, addiction and multiple demonstrations of personality abnormalities. My wife was raised in a religious home and never attended public school only Seventh day Adventist schools. She is well educated. Her name with proper title is Mattie Y. Sherard, RN, BSN, MSN, FNP, APN. She is a former captain the airforce and served with distinction.
I am amazed at the turn of events in my wife's life. She and I married 13 years ago. She has always had an expemplary academic record. We had two son's together. She used drugs during her pregnancy of our last child, about 7 years ago. She is a virtuoso pianist and was the minister of music for our church. She directed 3 choirs. She was president of our school board, and president of the nurse practitioner's association of our local county. She graduated with her Master's degree in Nursing in 2006 and things went downhill seemingly after that. She started to see a woman, started to smoke cigarettes, marijuana, drink alcohol. All of this was done away from the home. She never had to work. She began to steal money from the practice, giving it to her mother, sister, friends, the church but mostly herself. She always dressed impeccably and spends freely on clothing, has over 215 pairs of shoes for example. She focuses on her physical appearance to an extreme degree. Over the past three years just before our divorce she used drugs heavily; I discovered that she was sleeping
with women, 31 men and multiple bizarre people whom you would never think a Master's Degreed person would associate with. Her present boyfriend is 7 years younger, no education beyond high school, homeless, lives with his parents, addicted to cocaine, bisexual. She met him in drug rehab. I insisted that she get help. She has been with him from April 2009 until the present day.
Her treatment didn't help at all. Throughout her life she has used aliases. She has over 6 aliases. Mostly they are used for getting credit and buying stuff. She used them to get accounts set up to get more and more credit accounts.She never apologized for ruining the marriage or any of her affairs. She finds it very difficult to admit to any shortcoming. She stole prescriptions from the office and forged my signature. I prosecuted her and she was arrested, convicted and now is a convicted felon for life. She is to have another hearing soon before the state board of nursing to determine her fitness to be a nurse. She, soon, is to be tried for embezzlement, having stole $104,000.00 during a two year period of time. She acts as if there is no problem. Her parents give her no support now. She behaves in a fashion where she is accountable to NO one. During our marriage she would never ask for my advice or follow my advice, even if she were in trouble,she would follow my advice until she got out of trouble.
I am trying to get a handle on her psychological profile, as she now is a criminal, continues to use aliases to do dishonest deeds and lies almost continually. Because we have young son's together, I must deal with her. On November 15, 2010, I go before the Tennessee Board of Nursing to testify against her, to give evidence of her criminal conduct, to present evidence of her lack of professional conduct. I thought I would give you this information and see what you think.. I am a pediatrician who also does General Practice. She seems to be narcissistic with antisocial overlapping traits. She has NO concern that I am aware of, that she is likley to lose her license for life and she may be going to prison for 5-10 years. Let me know what you think about her. I will be happy to fill you in on anything else that you need to give me an evalualtion.
