A 33-year-old member asked:

is it ok if someone with antisocial personality disorder form a relationship?

Yes but: This type of relationship can never be healthy. If formed with another antisocial person, it can result in serious criminal activities. If formed with a social person, it will destroy the social person. Antisocial personalitiies need serious treatment in order to proceed with what we consider as a normal productive healthy life with anyone including themselves.
Dr. Pamela Pappas
Psychiatry 42 years experience
Yes -- scary ones: Antisocial personality disorder people do form exploitative relationships. They also lie, cheat, and have no remorse for this or for using others. They can be extremely cold when you do not meet their needs. If the partner is more capable of genuine empathy and care, s/he will be emotionally harmed by this behavior -- and could also be devastated in other ways (including financial).

Is it normal for my relationship with my husband to change after baby?

Dr. Lawrence Wasser
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: It would be extremely surprising if it did not change. Bringing a new person into a household is a huge event that will change relationships. Your marriage's new & important task - childrearing - this is a lot of new work (and huge rewards!) that the two of you must learn to share. You both have to realize that you are no longer the most important member of this family- parenting takes partners.

What is the connection between lupus & allergies?

Dr. Maziar Rezvani
Allergy and Immunology 21 years experience
Nothing direct: Lupus (sle) is autoimmunity. Allergies is hypersensitivity of your immune system. Autoimmunity does cause immune dysregulation, which may confer to hypersensitivity, but again, I am unsure that the prevalence of "allergies" in sle is any higher than the general public. Sle does commonly cause skin issues, which may be confused with allergies.

Dr. Pamela Pappas
Psychiatry 42 years experience
Yes: Psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals have experience with people who have histrionic personality disorder. Many other physicians encounter and work with them also, but are not the primary ones to treat this problem. Mental health professionals would be best suited to help such a person directly.
