Dr. Ramani kicks off this week’s Ask the Doctor session by sharing tips for coping with a narcissistic parent. She even sheds light on how to convince others who may not understand narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) that you’ve cut them out of your life for a good reason. She then walks through how to tell a friend or loved one that they may be misdiagnosed with the wrong mental health issue (without offending them.) She then discusses all things bipolar disorder and personality disorder: at what age most people start showing signs, the differences between the two, and what causes them. She ends the interview with some key strategies for spotting the differences between two very similar disorders: avoidant personality disorder and social anxiety.
