    Really, has anyone ever met anyone who doesn’t display traits of a personality disorder? I recoginized several traits of my own. Although, they seemed to surface during different times in my life when I was younger, older, impaired and now sober. The important thing is to distingish them in the people we help and to know how to help them accordingly without hanging on to our own issues.

  2. Its on a continuum from “adjusted” to full blown disorder. Like mental health/disease, one can move back and forth on the continuum as mercury moves on a thermometer.
