Depression and the Narcissist


Question:

My husband is a narcissist and is constantly depressed. Is there any connection between these two problems?

Answer:

Assuming that these are clinically established facts, there is no necessary connection between them. In other words, there is no proven high correlation between suffering from NPD (or having even a milder form of narcissism) – and enduring bouts of depression.

Originally, the narcissist experiences "forbidden" thoughts and urges (sometimes to the point of an obsession). His mind is full of "dirty" words, curses, the remnants of magical thinking ("If I think or wish something it just might happen"), denigrating and malicious thinking concerned with authority figures (mostly parents or teachers).
