    Welcome to the world of personality disorders.
    Where you feel certain that either you’re insane or the people around you are.
    Let me explain.
    I’ll begin by first explaining what a personality or personality pattern is and then we’ll move on to the disorder part of the discussion.
    A personality or personality pattern is how individuals make sense of their environment, react to or construe a particular situation.
    Basically, it refers to how individuals differ from each other.
    Furthermore, a personality pattern allows us to predict how a particular individual will respond in a given situation.
    We use the term personality disorder, when an individual’s way of making sense of their environment or situation is particularly inflexible, widespread, and interferes with the ‘others’ in their lives.
    The amount of interference necessary to merit the diagnosis varies, hence it is always more helpful to use the individual’s unique personality pattern in question verses a diagnostic label.
    Here is a link to a friendly article that explains the different types of personality disorders from a more personal and less clinical standpoint.
    Remember- the label is not important here.
    What is important is this:
    * If you are in a relationship with someone who struggles along this personality spectrum you deserve and will benefit from support and guidance
    * If you are an individual who struggles with personality issues you will benefit from professional help
    * Treatment is available and effective
    If you or someone you care about struggles with a personality disorder, you are not alone. Use this space to connect and support each other throughout the journey.
