Narcissism vs. BPD

I've received a lot of email asking about Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and the difference between that and Emotional Dysregulation or Borderline Personality Disorder.
Randi Kreger,  the co-author of Stop Walking On Eggshells, has written a 10 part series Blog on the subject, clearly written, easy to read and to the point.
You can find it here:

  • I have the perfect right to do or say whatever I want and no one should object.
  • My needs have priority, and if others don't like it they just don't understand my superiority.
  • If you don't do what I want I will become highly offended, make threats, plead with you, or criticize and blame you. If that upsets you, that's your fault. And please don't bother me with your feelings about it. It upsets me when you don't see yourself as inferior to me.
  • Relationships aren't about give and take. They are about me taking and you giving. If you give and give with the hope that you will one day get your needs met, I will string you along as long as I can.
