How do you guys do it? I live with someone with Histrionic Personality Disorder. The symptoms of which are: Excessive dramatics with exaggerated displays of emotions. A need to be the center of attention (self-centeredness). Inappropriately seductive appearance or behavior. Rapidly shifting emotional states that may appear shallow to others Tendency to believe that relationships are more intimate than they actually are. In short, you can use the nmemonic PRAISE P - provocative (or seductive) behavior R - relationships, considered more intimate than they are A - attention, must be at center of I - influenced easily S - speech (style) - wants to impress, lacks detail E - emotional lability, shallowness M - make-up - physical appearance used to draw attention to self E - exaggerated emotions - theatrical And I'm going to be completely honest, it can be VERY agitating. This is a relative I am talking about, and I love this relative to death, but sometimes, I can't even describe how agitated I get, I have to get up and leave my house and wander around aimless for a good hour before I am calmed down enough to return home.
