Last I checked, people with ASPD were stigmatised until hell and back as being serial killers, manipulators, abusers and murderers. I would very much like to be able to be open about my mental illness without being run off this site and many others for being Antisocial. So yeah I think we do need support. Many of us may not give a damn but some do so we might as well benefit everyone, imho

I feel the same about my NPD. I’d like to be able to talk about it more openly if I wanted to, without it possibly costing me my job.
