    Howard has claimed to have various psychological conditions over the years and it always seemed like schtick, but now it's clear he's seriously mentally ill. The discussion he had a few weeks ago regarding his lunch order is the best illustration of this. We all know Howard has servants, a personal chef, and a wife who could prepare any meal he wanted and have it packaged and ready in the AM, but instead he has Will and the interns (who all should be working) calling and running all over town to find exactly what he wants. He expects restaurants to open early and have special menus just for him and doesn't care how much he inconveniences everyone else, just like his insistance that AGT move to NY. He seems to always need people publicly sucking up to him and kissing his ass or he's not happy. This goes well beyond being a selfish egomaniac - WTF is wrong with him?

    Now who's the mentally ill one? :)

    Just kidding.

    I guess the answer would be NPD.

    Agreed! I realized I was probably giving Beth too much credit, especially after seeing her trying to open the tupperware container in the YouTube seagull video.

    how can ANYone not know Howard has "issues". I started listening when he was on in the afternoon at WNBC and knew Immediately he was a nut case.

    he already admitted he had OCD but talking about how his mother brought him up to be a 'veal' and bonded with him like he was the most important person in the universe because she was severely depressed shows that something was wrong.
    We can't diagnose just from what we have heard on the radio but it's very clear Howard is nutty [​IMG]

    Of course the castrated one is mentally ill...when you get as rich and famous as him, you tend to insulate yourself from the general public and surround yourself with ass-kissing yes-men/women who constantly sing your praises when in fact half of them can't stand you or your antics...As such, you lose touch with realty and tend to cling, believe and tend to suffocate (see his whore wife) only those that give you positive reinforcement..

    ...Eventually, I see Howard turning into another Howard Hughes isolating himself from everybody, pissing in pickle jars and living with sense of paranoia and doom...

    This

    or he's technically Batshit Crazy.

    Donald Trump has it too, but he is a bigger attention whore egomaniac, or one who doesn't hide it.

    Makes perfect sense why the quack won't give him a diagnosis. If the quack actually tells him what is wrong, it will be perceived as a slight, the switch will flip, and Howward will consider him an enemy. You could sprinkle in some OCD and paranoia.

    Same thing with Robin too, with an emphasis on the trouble keeping healthy relationships part.

    But then you have to go into WHY is he insecure, which will lead to a fear of failure and not being perfect, because he is a fucking narcissist.

    Me I'm insecure, because if I fail at work, I can't pay bills.

    His shrink is not giving up his cash cow pelican. Deal with your own shit Howard. Everyone has problems, you don't need a shrink, just stop being a cheap Jew and fucking your fans.

    Also Howard is obsessed with sex, that's for sure. If you heard the Levine interview, boy that was terrible. Sure, sex sells and talking about it is fine for a few minutes but that was just an awful interview.

    Hm that's a valid point. Maybe you're right.
