I wonder if my social outcastness is directly associated with my clusters.
I possess traits of Histrionic disorder.
I'm interested to know if they may be from not being understood over the years trying to get people to believe my pain is real.
Has anyone ever been accused of faking to get out of doing something?
A related query:
Has anyone faked an attack to get out of doing something? Total honesty needed here.
I have been a victim of circumstance at times. There were times before my parents understood what I go through when they thought I was faking my pain 'cause it would come at an inopportune time.
I have been guilty in the past of saying that I had pain just to get out of something I didn't feel like doing.That was a long time ago and have matured since.
My family and friends know now that my pain is real and support me. I no longer feel the frustration I used to years ago when the clusters were taking over. I have new frustrations now and only a handful of people who understand.
I wonder how many others may have Histrionic Disorder traits and aren't aware.
