What do I think of people with Histrionic Personality Disorder? The same thing I think about anyone else with a health problem whether it be physical health or in the realm of mental health: they are dealing with a health problem that was not of their making, and one they may not be able to heal or manage without proper medication or treatment.
There is a HUGE stigma around people who are suffering with mental health disorders. This is based on unfounded fears and unfortunately, extremely judgmental attitudes. People with mental health disorders are no worse than people dealing with physical disorders. Attitudes and perceptions are based on a lack of understanding and very misguided stereotypes.
Would I date someone with Histrionic Personality Disorder? Yes, as long as they where receiving treatment and/or taking medication. People with mental health disorders who receive treatment can and do live productive lives with healthy relationships. Just like any other person, someone who has a physical disorder will find themselves dealing with physical symptoms which will interfere with their lives and relationships; so what's the difference really.
I have a question for you: don't we all seek attention? Whether it be a friend, lover or parent?
In life, attitude is everything, so keep it positive. Understanding and compassion for your fellow human being is good for the soul and you never know when you might need some yourself.
