What is histrionic personality disorder?

October 18, 2019

Histrionic personality disorder is an attention-seeking personality disorder as bad as narcissism and borderline combined into one hot mess. If one is bipolar-schizoaffective, also being histrionic, this is a massively bad form to be in. Personality is an aspect of brain function that relates to ingrained patterns of behavior affecting the ways someone relates to their perceptions of the world versus themselves. Personality is not etched in stone at 18, it is something that changes with the person, by the second. You are not incapable of change at 18, or forced to change your entire personality at 18.

Personality disordered people have many a stiffened attitude about their ways of thinking, behaving, and relating to the world. Personality disorders begin at adolescence, or early adulthood. Histrionic people like attention; the bottom line is that they do whatever it takes to get it. They are self-centered or sexually seductive when they flirt with people they are not with. They have disturbed emotions when they exaggerate how much pain they are in to get attention. They are supposedly the “life of the party”, something I do not want to do to anybody, which is why I stay shy.

They dress uniquely to draw attention to themselves. Histrionics genuinely get uncomfortable when they are not the center of attention: they are influenced by the opinions of others. I have a theory that my mother is histrionic, among other disorders. Being around her simply makes my mental health go south and she knows it. This is why I go out of my way to avoid my family as they don’t live in the United States anymore. As she takes no interest in anything I’ve done, I doubt she bothers with Internet stuff because I keep her blocked on Facebook. She is unlikely to seek help for any mental health problem anytime soon, much less addictions.
