Goddessinjapan Posted March 17, 2014 Share Posted March 17, 2014 Hi! I have kind of an interesting question: has anyone tried pheromones on someone with a personality disorder? I didn't know a darn thing about personality disorders until I stumbled on a description and recognized my soon-to-be ex, to a "t". First, personality disorders aren't like mental illnesses. They aren't medically treatable, or really very treatable at all, since they are basically self-developed coping mechanisms, not chemical disorders, and these people cause so much damage within relationships. Generally the only solution is to get O-U-T. Common personality disorders are Borderline (extreme attachment and control), Narcissistic (lack of empathy, manipulative in the extreme), and Histrionic (extreme need for attention, whether positive or negative). In my case, we're talking Narcissist, and that means lack of empathy. After 25 years, there's a bit there, maybe, when he sees me as vulnerable and weak. Since we're going to be working out a divorce settlement (no kids, thank goodness), I need him to at least not feel threatened suspicious, and hostile, which is basically a Narcissist's default setting. Anyone tried pheromones on someone with a personality disorder, or am I breaking new ground here? I'm planning to get Empathy Potion (of course), although if it only works on me, I'm in trouble...I'll end up an empathetic puddle of mush. And LACE, to see if that brings out any protective qualities. Any other ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
