Our everyday picture of a narcissist is that of someone who is very self-involved — the conversation is always about them.

That’s not the only good news. While more and more Americans are becoming dependent on the federal government for their very existence, Dependent Personality Disorder is also getting the axe.

The other disorders being eliminated are Paranoid and Schizoid. I suppose the 9/11 Truthers will be glad to hear that.

In all seriousness, mental health practitioners are concerned about the changes. It will complicate treatment. And can you imagine the headaches their staffs will endure with the billing changes that are sure to result? I wonder how many diagnosis codes are tied to those five disorders.
