I saw our MC alone yesterday and shared with him the latest DD.

This would start our 5rd round of MC to deal with what has now become a compulsion to seek inappropriate female attention.

After a candid 45 minutes, our Psychologist says that he thinks WS has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. He explained the markers my H has most of them. I hate labeling but this just makes SO MUCH SENSE.

WS doesn't have empathy so there's no conscience stopping him from trying to pickup women. He has told me that he didn't consciously send the inappropriate messages (this last time)... geez.

I feel less angry being able to put a 'name' to what is causing the behaviour. But I'm also really scared because it's a mental health issue and he said it's hard to treat.

He's going to see WS on Friday alone and is going to refer him to a specialist on personality disorders.

Anyone have any experience with this? Outcomes?

Yes, many people here have dealt with NPD. There is a thread in the "I Can Relate" forum.
