The Narcissistic Abuse & Trauma Recovery Podcast

Dec 19, 2023

When we’re in an abusive relationship with a narcissist, our behaviour tends to change, it’s a way that our body attempts to adapt to the situation to ensure that we can stay as safe as possible. Unfortunately, this shift in behaviour can often lead you to seek out medical help which all too commonly results in a diagnosis of Borderline or Bipolar Personality Disorder. In this episode, I’m going to discuss why so many people are being misdiagnosed and how healing from narcissistic abuse will also heal you from your changed behaviour. 

What you will learn in this episode:

  • How our behaviour changes in a narcissistic relationship

  • The method medical professionals use to diagnose personality disorders

  • Why so many abused individuals are misdiagnosed and how to heal from narcissistic abuse

I’ll discuss the method that medical professionals use when diagnosing Borderline and Bipolar Personality Disorder and why it’s so easy to be misdiagnosed. As you’ll hear in the episode, so many of the traits of these personality disorders can be the result of being an abused individual, which leads to so many people having to live with a label and taking medication without figuring out what caused these behaviours in the first place.
