So I think that I might have Narcissistic Personality Disorder ,because I'm showing most of the signs of it ,but I'm terrified to get diagnosed with it. I'm scared to tell my doctor. Should I try to find out that if I have or not?

Go see your doctor, explain how you feel and see what they come up with. ☺️
Hi Ibbi, there is information about this on The Out of The Fog site.
Many people who have contact with people with NPD develop maladaptive behaviours in order to cope - on this site it's called 'fleas'. Check it out for yourself. I agree with Stilltrying, if you show any doubt or concern about having NPD then you are unlikely to have it!
I'm extremely familiar with narcissistic personality traits and the disorder itself as my mother I am now positive had narcissistic personality disorder. I have recently read about the "fleas". I don't have that myself. I became very co-dependent though that label does not seem to do justice to the disruption of my entire life process and the fact that now at aged 60 I have been in therapy since 18 and have barely functioned in life up until now ( no job, no marriage, no kids, nothing as I devoted my life to "her". )
I am "emerging" now. My mum died 4 years ago and I feel she actually had to die for me to start to make any real progress. Sad, but at least I am now in touch with reality and starting to like and respect myself, finally xx
Good to meet a fellow member who had experienced similar.
