everyone really needs to stop calling folks narcissists/sociopaths when the people they're referring to aren't diagnosed and are really just known abusers.

abuse is not inherent with cluster b personality disorders.


@mercurythedragon narcissists aren't going to get diagnosed, and narcissistic abusers are masters at playing mental health professionals to convince them there's nothing wrong.

And narcissistic abuse is quite different from garden variety abuse.

It was immensely helpful for my healing to have terminology, coping strategies, and community with other people who experienced the exact same things I did.
