    JillZ has a classic textbook case of narcissistic personality disorder.

    Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition in which there is an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme preoccupation with one's self.

    A person with narcissistic personality disorder:

        * Reacts to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation
        * Takes advantage of other people to achieve his or her own goals
        * Has feelings of self-importance
        * Exaggerates achievements and talents
        * Is preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence, or ideal love
        * Has unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment
        * Requires constant attention and admiration
        * Disregards the feelings of others, lacks empathy
        * Has obsessive self-interest
        * Pursues mainly selfish goals


    Psychotherapy may help the affected person relate to others in a more positive and compassionate manner.

    The cause of this disorder is unknown. Narcissistic personality disorder usually begins by early adulthood.
