At present there are no known studies to determine if the same brain patterns exist for an addiction to a person.
I was recently doing some research on addiction, for another publication, when I stumbled across something that fascinated me.
A true narcissist can best be described as having an "I come before you" or "Me first" attitude. Nobody can figure out how to deal with this creature when it rears its ugly head! Everyone seems either to be a narcissist or to know someone who is.A pervasive feeling of heartache, sadness, depression and worthlessness.
Continuing to engage with a Narcissist while being fully aware of the emotional, psychological, and/or financial harm it causes. Checking your phone and email, or any source of previous contact, repeatedly every few seconds or minutes, in hopes of some contact you may have missed.
Behaviors: Examples of these behaviors in terms of Narcissist Addiction would be: A preoccupation with thinking about and longing for a person, or a relationship long after the relationship has ended, to the point that it impedes normal life functioning.
