This is my first post here. I'm 18 years old and in college. I have been diagnosied with Borderline Personality Disorder with Narcissistic Personality Traits. I was wondering if it is common for these two disorders to be comorbid (coexist)? I believe I am a compensitory Narcissist which means my ********** comes from insecurity and weakness not by true self confidence. Can someone have two personality disorders? I know that Bipolar and BPD can coexist but what about 2 personality disorders? Your imput would be appreciated. I would give you my symptoms but you all probably know the symptoms of borderline PD and Narcissistic PD.
Yes they can coexist. I think, from what I've read in psychological articles that most people with personality disorders have traits of more than just one personality disorder.

Are you one of those people who talks on and on about yourself. You boss people around. Make people feel bad about themselves.
Just curious...like why and what is the reason for that?

As you study psych you will realize that no disorder is cut and dry. You will find that MOST people with personality disorders have bits and pieces of more than one kind. Just b/c people with NPD don't cut doesn't mean they all don't cut. You have to think of mental illness on a spectrum.
