My ex is clinically a narcissist so that was fun, but I do agree with you. People don’t know the half of it.

People are always going to talk about things they don’t actually know anything about and throw words around that they don’t fully understand, it’s part of life unfortunately 🤷🏻‍♀️

It can go the other way as well, I often think about a time when I made a joke about a specific (invisible) disability, and the joke/statement was basically like “oh I’m having a really [disability] day, lol! It’s amazing I even made it to work today!”
My then-coworker immediately started angrily chewing me out, going on about how insensitive I was being, how there really are people who have that disability and you never know who’s listening, and how I need to be better, etc.
…I personally DO have the disability in question. I was making light of actual struggles I was experiencing due to that disability that day, and I frequently use humor about it.
It’s hard to strike a balance. Did my coworker have good intentions? Absolutely! Did they go about it the wrong way, including assuming that I couldn’t possibly have the disability so I must be being insensitive (something I try never to be)? Also absolutely.
I think the moral of the story here is that we should just, like, generally chill. 😂😂

It goes for pretty much all psychiatric diagnoses - people self-diagnose as depressed, anxious, bipolar, OCD, seasonal affective disorder, all the time. They call other people psychotic, neurotic, narcissistic. These are real, clinical diagnoses and for the people who actually suffer from these conditions it’s usually much more extreme than how people use them in casual conversation intend.

Running an 18 month program for a client - it’s been going very well. A few months ago there were some leadership changes and as a result there’s the usual questions about consulting spend.

Given he’s the one that has continuously ramped up our support on the program, I am getting a bit sick of it. Just venting!!
