Hi. This could be a sign of a narcissistic personality disorder or perhaps a schizoaffective personality disorder but I don't have enough information here to be certain. I would suggest you see a psychologist for a full interview and battery of cognitive tests to see what the problem is and then to get appropriate therapy for it like cognitive behavioral therapy

Hi Dr Chip

Could you tell me what you base your diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder or perhaps a schizoaffective personality disorder on? It is a bit shocking to hear this...

Best regards

Anette

I see that the other expert has opted out

I disagree with his diagnosis.

I think it could be something very simple going on

you are associating something about your husband with your father.

that is why you are seeing your father's image when you think about or see your husband.

these issues are best explored and treated with a psychotherapist or a psychologist in talk therapy sessions to explore your past and to explore your relationship with your father.

are you willing to see a counselor or a psychologist to talk about these issues?
