Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello again :)
I am so happy that you found the books helpful and this great to hear about your daughter
Hey, Dr Z, I appreciate you so much. I just read one chapter in the book and not only thought, "I'm going to grow so much from this" but it really hit home in what is going on with my sister.
I'm also so proud of her! She's handling herself so well!
She is handling herself really well from it sounds like, and yes those books are definite eye openers to explain the behavior of your sister.
The one thing that I read so far in the book is that if I say "You're wrong about this..." to Nancy, she likely hears "I think you're the scum of the earth!"
Yes individuals with NPS do take it very personally and feel like you are insulting them, when you are not
When she learned Kat makes more money than she does, she heard "I'm a loser!"
That is Nancy's selfish side and only thinking about herself, classic symptoms of this disorder. Kat handled it really well though.
Kat does have the psychological tools she needs to maintain her mental health. That's always good for me to know. Being alone in the truck for so much of the time does tend to make me think she could begin again with obsessive thoughts, but she's handling her thinking very well.
Well I think Kat knows that being alone in the truck can lead to obsessive thoughts, so I imagine she developed good coping mechanism to counteract them.
That's so true. I do wish I could contact everyone who helped her and let them know how it paid off. The ones we were able to contact are of course thrilled with her progress. She's really exceeded expectations.
Regardless of what my sister does in her life, I know I can grow through this and not just endure it.
That is great to hear and yes you will grow through this and adapt to her behavior so that it does not effect you greatly
Indeed! Thank you again for your time and what you do. I don't need to take up any more of your time, but be encouraged, what you do REALLY makes a difference in people's lives.
Thank you so much, I am just happy to make a difference in other people's lives and help them. I am glad that I was able to help you with this :)
Have a great day!
You have a great holiday too :)
