    It seems to me like several Upper Lesser women have committed suicide. (and a few male ones)

    Btw, they are also often diagnosed as Borderline, just like Middle Mid Type Bs.

    But very very rare among Greater and Midrange as you explain, HG.

    This is I think part of the reason why ppl diagnosed as Borderline have really bad statistics on suicide. Upper Lesser women, just like empath borderlines, have this risk it appears.

    HG, what if they are on the lam like Brian Laundrie? Are they more likely to keep running until caught or commit suicide to avoid going to jail?

      On the lam? Is that an error or some term I am yet to familiarise myself with?

        Oh, wise guy, eh?
        Yeah, see….lam means on the run from the fuzz, see?
        The coppers will catch him and throw him in the slammer, see?
        But not me – I’m not goin on the lam on account a I’m the one holdin the roscoe here.

    Dear Mr Tudor,
    I’ve just finished listening to this and found it most informative and clarifying
    My mother mentions “suicide” in conversation at least once a fortnight
    She would like to end her life “her way” and has stipulated most emphatically that she doesn’t want to go into a nursing home, should the situation arise
    She repeatedly threatens she’s going to look up “suicide” on her computer, but she never does. She’s even asked me to look it up and I’ve always said “no way”. I continually diffuse her antics by jokingly saying she’ll probably be smothered by one of her cats lying on top of her in bed at night instead.
    That’s seems to appeal to her sense of amusement and for her to “carry on” as it were
    I don’t take her threats seriously

    Having “suicide” continually raised, gets rather dreary, repetitive and exhausting to listen to from my perspective, they certainly love pushing the envelope to extremes

    The weasel bragged to me one day that he had actually slung a hangmans noose up (somewhere up there which he couldn’t really answer exactly where) in preparation of standing on a chair and ending his life …. but “alas”, his partner arrived home “just in the nick of time” apparently, according to him and his plot was foiled … “drats” as they say !

    Funny how they’re still around to tell the tale to all and sundry and haven’t yet succeeded in their darstardly planned deed
    Our greater friend has never raised the subject, ever !

    Thank you for this very interesting piece, you can never learn enough in the life of a narc, they’re quite pitiful and ridiculous really!
    Luv Bubbles xx 😘

    Found this video interesting.

    On this subject, I can relate to the lower echelon narcissists as their being unaware of what they are – I was unaware of what I was feeling this time last year and all I could describe it as ‘unaware emotional suicide’ (not thinking it and not realising I was feeling it). Majority of the reason why – a whole life-time of narcissistic abuse.

    Since the lower echelon narcissists are not aware of what they are – maybe, just maybe, I felt what they must ‘sense’ but unable to explain the reasons why they ‘feel’ that way.

    Had the suicide threat before Christmas. At first I tried to be nonchalant, but knowing he was in the middle of a fuel crisis made my E.T panic and I buckled. Surprise surprise, just a few days later and he was seemingly back to normal.
    Interestingly, in my desperation to help, I messaged a “love rival,” a woman he has triangulated me with on more than one occasion by claiming she is such a great friend. She didn’t respond, so I wonder if she’s used to this kind of nonsense?
    He is back in the depths of fuel crisis again now after seemingly bouncing back for a few days, and as he is a lower-mid ranger with a very limited and distant fuel line I’m not sure he can pull himself back from this now. I can’t be his fuel anymore, I’m too tired.
