Dependent Personality Disorder June 01, 2005 9:34 PM

Dependent Personality Disorder What is Dependent Personality Disorder? Quick Summary: Dependent personality disorder is characterized by a need to be taken care of. People with this disorder tend to cling to people and fear losing them. They may become suicidal when a break-up is imminent. They tend to let others make important decisions for them and often jump from relationship to relationship. Dependents often remain in abusive relationships. Over-sensitivity to disapproval is common. Dependents often feel helpless and depressed. Symptoms of Dependent Personality Disorder: Difficulty making decisions Feelings of helplessness when alone Suicidal thoughts upon rejection Submissiveness Deeply hurt by mild criticism or disapproval Unable to meet ordinary demands of life Ingrid  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

THIS USED TO BE ME BUT OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS I HAVE TAKEN CONTROL OF MY LIFE. I DONT KEEP MY FEELINGS TO MYSELF ANYMORE. IF SOMEONE SAYS OR DOES SOMETHING TO ME TO HURT ME I WILL TELL THEM RIGHT AWAY. I HAVE LOST A COUPLE FRIENDS IN DOING THIS BUT I GOT SICK AND TIRED OF BEING TRAPPED IN WHAT I CALL THE DOORMAT SYNDROME  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
