Good point. It said no personality disorder. However it said that I had a problem with authority figures particularly male and more around my tendency to surrender myself in an unhealthy way which was absolutely true at the time. My damaged childhood made me a sitting duck for bad relationships, it was normal to me I didn’t have a model for what a healthy relationship looked like so it was no surprise I ended up in a toxic one. When we come from a bad upbringing we have a tendency to repeat trauma until we have resolution over it, this was the case in my marriage.
