I have many motives for writing on the topics of ASPD and psychopathy. As I enter my 18th month of conceptual continuity with my blog and continue to see exponential growth with readership, the journey is (almost) humbling. I want to be a source for discourse regarding antisocial personalities. I don’t necessarily owe it to anyone, but having been through (and continuing to go through) therapy, diagnosis of ASPD, and assessment of psychopathy via the therapist’s use of the PCL-R, I’m in a position I would have never imagined two or three years ago. I am an intellectual antisocial individual with the resources available to allow for candid conversation regarding one of the more taboo subjects in the human experience. However, it is interesting to note the price I pay for such discourse. While not meaning to turn this post into a narcissistic cluster, I do think that the effect of discourse on the one speaking is an interesting topic and one that should be explored.
