Mod Post: A New Way to Navigate

We've implemented a new way of navigating the community.

We are trying to organize as many entries as possible into categories in our list of Memories.

If you are looking for a specific topic or have a question, please check the Memories (which can be found on the profile page or in the sidebar of the community) to see if it has been posted and discussed already!

As more topics come up, more categories/memories will be added.

This should help to keep things organized and easier for members to find specific entries/topics.

Debate/Discussion: Sociopathic/Psychopathic Minds

I'm going to try to keep this as short and simple as possible.

At a young age, I was diagnosed with a conduct disorder. Several years ago, I was diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder. I endured years of physical, sexual, emotional, etc. abuse...witnessed deaths at a young age...had several severe head injuries (which I've read is also connected in a lot of cases of AsPD)...

Collapse )

Should "sociopaths" be labeled a "lost cause", since there really is no "rehab" or "cure" for them?

Also, I've met many people who claim to be "sociopathic" but after a little bit of observation, I can pretty easily conclude they are not. Apparently the media has made it "cool" to be "without conscience". However, if people really knew what went on in "our" heads and what "we" had to endure to get to this stage, they may not be so quick to think it's "cool". Do you think people try to pretend to be something they're not simply because it's "in" or because a fictional character they like is that way?

So...there are some questions in there! And if any of you have any questions for me, feel free to ask. As stated, I'm an open book and usually tell it like it is, at least based on my knowledge and experience.

ETA: I'm not saying all sociopaths belong in a hospital or prison. Some live fairly "normal" lives...but others...

Holy Smokes!

We're growing quickly!

Welcome to everyone! I don't know if all of you will want to sift through all of these introduction posts, so we may just do one post where everyone comments, introducing themselves (just like in the posts)?

What do you guys think?

Also, MOD NOTE: Please tag your entries (and please read the rules. They're there for a reason). I have OCD and I like to keep things organized!

Finally, if anyone would be interested in Affiliating with us (which involves linking us on your community page somewhere and we'd do the same), please comment to this entry with a link to your community and we'll check it out and let you know. - Scratch that. I'll make a separate Affliliate entry.

Thanks...welcome, once again, and let's get things hopping!
