Four years ago, I was injured several times by a sociopath who also happened to be a surgeon over the course of 18 months.
He was extremely charming, seemed very intelligent, but the more I got to know him, the more I discovered he was extremely egotistical to the point that he literally strutted.
His personality and mood could change from appointment to appointment and within an appointment, often he scoffed and belittled, more obvious lying -complete 180 contradictions. The medical records he wrote were contradictory in many pages, and within them, he lied and attempted to plot a cover up. Unfortunately, with other doctors who didn’t take the time to properly read the records, it worked.
I ended up severely traumatized – I still am. I am now financially destitute, my 14 year, previously happy marriage began falling apart, my husband was somewhat brainwashed and began verbally abusing me, using some of the exact words/phrases the surgeon used – I almost was also, while he tried to convince us that at first, my injuries were all my fault, then realizing that wasn’t working on me, changed to trying to convince me the injuries (which all my friends noticed and mentioned) were all in my head.
I attempted to convince myself that they weren’t there, but I knew they were. I was being psychologically abused. I somehow graduated during this time, with a degree I still haven’t used. I have every symptom of severe trauma.
Every time they scoff, I am traumatized, which is why it’s taken me so long to get over it
This man got away with everything he did.I have a case, but not $100,000 to put into the cost of a court case. Most other doctors often didn’t and some still don’t believe what happened, a few have and have examined the injuries and confirmed the issues.
I consider this man to be a sociopath and not someone with antisocial personality disorder, only because I have lack of knowledge of his private life, his childhood, etc. that could give further clues. But I also truly believe this man was on cocaine.
I consider myself very proficient at understanding trauma now, and at least some expertise on the mind of a sociopath. I lived through it – having studied criminal justice and forensic psychology has been a good background also, obviously and while I have been trying to get the injuries repaired, a broken nose that had to be reconstructed, it’s taking longer because with no job, and no money, I can’t get the injuries corrected. avictum
I dated a sociopath off and on for ten years. I just recently evicted him from my life. Now he’s running around telling people that he doesn’t have any idea why I kicked him out of my life and how crazy I am. Go figure. avictum
Your story about your brother’s need to be the center of attention reminds me of when my ex and I were still married and he said a girlfriend he dated while http://homeloansplus.org/payday-loans-nm we were separated was so beautiful that, when she entered a room, all men turned to watch her enter.
Well, there is a difference in a “wife” and a woman who is “out there.” So, I decided to be “out there” so he could see me in the same light as his beloved girlfriend.
But it’s those doctors who scoff and act so highly arrogant that push me deeper into a trauma state
Next time we were at a business meeting: a table of 10 VIP men in his organization, I asked for butter, and three of them stood up with butter in their hands to offer me.
