I believe schizoaffective personality disorder as well as other schizoid disorders can cause these behaviors.The symptoms of blaming others and such,stem from paranoia,which is an underlying symptom of these disorders and illnesses.
These are not answers to the problam,but symptoms that go along with the illness.1.Insecurity in ones self.
3.A bad attitude to begin with., THESE THREE SYMPTOMS ARE REGULAR BEHAVIOR WITH THAT KIND OF MENTAL ILLNESS.
Paranoid schizophrenia comes close.
Alcoholism, while not a mental illness, is a close match, also.
You must know my sister! LOL On a more serious note, I would be very interested in this answer.
As a person who has a mental illness, schizo-affective disorder to be specific, I can tell you that "being the victim" used to be all I thought about. I needed someone to pay special attention to me(usually the men in my life, but never sexually), and I came up with elaborate plans to make them do so. And they almost always worked, at least in my mind. And then I got help in the form of hospitalization and medication and therapy, lots and lots of therapy...and I no longer even have that urge.
As for blaming things on everyone else and never taking responsibility, I have never had a problem with that. But when someone close to you is not acting right and you know they need help, sit them down and talk to them...it doesn't have to be one on one...the more people on your side, the more convincing!
This is considered emotional immaturity, not mental illness.
I know this personality disorder so well! It's sickning and sooo irritating to the responsible people around them who know how to apologize, and learn from their mistakes! If I were to look at these types of people as "Mentally Ill" I would Name this problem (Narcissism), at it's finest.
Here are the Symtoms of a Narcissistic personality disorder:.. *Resentment of criticism. *An exaggerated sense of self-importance. *Preoccupation with fantasies of grandeur. *Unreasonable expectations of special treatment by others. *Demand for constant attention and admiration. *Inability to recognize concerns of others. *Chronic, intense envy.
Since they say the cause is unknown, there are no specific preventive measures. However, if narcissistic trends appear to be developing, especially in an older child, they may be reversed by seeking professional help without delay.
If you are a Godly person, you may also want to look at this from Spiritual standpoint. Not to be jugemental, (we all have our weaknesses), but Vanity is at the core of the Enemies Character! His personality! It so important to Pray for eachother. God can work miracles!
God Bless you!
