Hi,
I think that is is not a big issue and problem, is can be improved by a little effort only.

My husband also has traits of histrionic personality disorder along with alcoholism. Does anyone have a success story after therapy?

I have a daughter with histrionic disorder that is currently serving in the army. She is 21 years old. This was first noticed when she turned 14 years old. She is always seeking attention from everyone. Everyone is her best friend, but her family. Is it a good idea to tell the "friends " she has here? I was thinking of taking myself, and her older sisters and telling her so called friends out here. I am sick of her constant lying about us.

I have HPD and its a hard thing to cope with....when you finaily realize you do what you do, for love and attention, from anyone, the lying is a coping mechanism to seem more improtant, becasue you feel empty without the approval from someone else, the need for appreatation is the main thing, i started acting out about that age as well, 14 now Im 35, been therapy for years, was misdiagnosed for years, but good luck

I am not sure how to do this or what to say. My daughter is 13 yrs old, she is warm, caring, fiesty and so much fun, at least those are the postive twist I can put on things. She was diagnosised a few years ago with ADHD, but the medication and counseling has not been able to help her. A lot of her behavior has progressed to scary thing, she is right now in a residental program to try and straighten her out. At 12 yrs old she was having sex, doing drugs, drinking, sneaking out at night, had over 3000 friends on facebook (a lot of grown men she didnt know), putting up video and pictures of her in a bra and underwear, stealing and physically abusing me and her sister if we tried to say anything. Her counselor at the program has finally said she believes ADHD is not my daughters only issue, finally someone looking beyond so maybe my daughter can get help. I know diagnosis usually are done at an older age, but everything I have read about Histrionic Personality disorder screams my daughters name. I know I need an official doctor to finally listen and look at everything (although all they ask is if she is sleeping, eating, etc normal with her meds), but I want to help her....I want her to have everything she deserves. So I am here, to make myself more supportive and understanding for her. She does not feel her behavior is wrong at all and I am sure my constant frustration about what she does is not helping anything. Is there anything I could do/should do to be supportive and helpful? Also, a quick thank you....I quickly looked at some of the threads, it actually felt good...I felt some hope. If I can find someone that understands her maybe I can help her better.
