In the psychopaths mind, everyone else wants him, so you better be on your best behavior, or he will move on to one of his adoring fans. After he sucks you in with idealization, then begins to devalue you, he will suddenly discard you as if you never had a relationship. He will usually move on to another target at this point. "Hoovering." Although a psychopath will discard you, he doesn't quite want you moving on either.If he senses you are done with him, he will suddenly do an about-face, and begin bombarding you with pleas to stay together.Be sure, the silent treatment and disappearing act will be laid squarely at your feet. Psychopaths love to work you up into a state of obsessive frenzy, so to do that, they idealize you, give you fabulous sex, and then begin pulling away and "triangulating." This is when they introduce other people into the mix to make you jealous.In reality, he is off sizing up his next target somewhere. It could be an ex-wife or ex-girlfriend, a friend of the same sex, or even a celebrity. The final phase of the psychopath is the "discard" phase.In the daytime, flickering TVs and "wrong number" callers to my mobile, things others would hardly register, seemed to signal imminent danger.And hovering helicopters zoomed in on my every move with sophisticated zoom-lens technology. It was December 2003 and the midnight screech of police sirens, usually no more than irritating, suddenly seemed deafening and unbearable.
This group of people, who I believed lived in London art squats, wanted me to suffer excruciating, lifelong physical pain in prison.This was at St George's Hospital in Stafford, otherwise mercilessly dubbed by locals as the Nut House, generally regarded as a place populated by the pitiful.
