One of the reasons that I haven’t been posting regularly recently has to do with a recent diagnosis of a psychological disorder that I’m suffering from. I’m still waiting for the results of the tests that will determine how far along the continuum between neurosis and psychosis I am.
Until those results come in, here’s a description of this newly defined disorder, to help you determine if you’re afflicted:
Narcissistic Blog Disorder
This disorder is characterized by the creation of a blog in which the individual consistently denigrates not only the opinions of others, but the very fact that others have opinions, saying things like “nobody cares what some overpaid starlet has to say about global warming” and “nobody cares what some crusty career politician thinks is wrong with society today.” Simultaneously, the individual assumes that people do care about what he or she has to say, in spite of the individual’s only political or activist experience being watching the movie Dave twice.
It’s coming soon to a DSM IV near you, along with Bookmark Loop Disorder, Pugilistic Discussion Syndrome, Amusement Identity Disorder. Or not.
