Narcissism, stress and other unpleasant things

A few years ago, a study was published reporting that men with a high narcissism score have about three times the level of the stress hormone cortisol in their saliva compared to men with low narcissism.

Original article:


It seems that living as a narcissist is very stressful. A limited stress response at appropriate times is useful, however, long term chronic stress and high cortisol are detrimental to one’s health.

Therefore if, at a future date, you see news of a man with malignant narcissism in a very stressful job who has suffered a heart attack or a stroke, feel free to wonder if elevated cortisol was involved. Theists among you may consider that, “The Lord works in mysterious ways.”

Many people will find your excellent advice helpful in enhancing their mental health, so thank you. But if the issue is serious and you can't handle it on your own, sometimes this isn't enough. Then it would be advisable to acquire counsel and skilled assistance from calmerry customer service. I completed this last year and was happy with the outcome.

I can't deal with stress

From my own experience, I can say that it is very difficult to find medications that are guaranteed to help you solve your sleep and stress problems. I have been looking for a solution to this problem for a long time and on one form I found an article about magic mushrooms and their beneficial properties. I found this website which sells certified magic mushrooms. And they really work as the manufacturer claims.

Underdiagnosed personality

Underdiagnosed personality disorder. When people with personality disorders seek treatment, their main complaints are often depression or anxiety rather than manifestations of their personality disorder. Once clinicians suspect a personality disorder, they assess cognitive, emotional, interpersonal, and behavioral predispositions using specific diagnostic criteria. More sophisticated and experimental diagnostic tools are available to more specialized clinical professionals. Candy Crush
