Unlikely Return

Three men shipwrecked on an island. Three women back home with broken hearts. A harrowing, heartfelt journey about the struggle to survive and the quest for redemption.

Ben, Stuart, and Paul are passengers on a three-day fishing trip. After their boat is sunk by a rogue wave, they wind up on a deserted island, where they struggle to stay alive while hoping for rescue. They later discover a common history—past relationships they wrecked—and the fight for survival forces them to re-examine their lives. Meanwhile, Michelle, Jillian, and Sarah wonder about the unlikely return of their exes. Will their lives move forward with—or without—them, and if so, how?

    It’s so easy to type in a phrase for a personality disorder (PD), such as narcissistic personality disorder [one of the more popular ones] and hit ‘enter.’ Then sit back and read whatever pops up at the top of the search engine. After 5 minutes of scanning online, look around for likely candidates for the diagnosis. Mom: nope. Dad: nope. BFF: absolutely not! Boss: probably. New boyfriend: hmmm. Here’s the rub: there is far more that determines a PD diagnosis than the bullet points you find online. Same goes for other psychological maladies. Best leave it to the professionals. Meanwhile, here are a handful of fun facts to know and tell about personality disorders:

    – They are not psychiatric illnesses

    – They are genetic in origin, having nothing to do with childhood or any other trauma

    – They are pervasive and enduring and can’t be ‘cured’ by traditional psychotherapy

    – 15% to 19% of the general population has a personality disorder

    – If you live with someone with a personality disorder, your life will be significantly disrupted

    Wow, that’s a bit heavy, right? That’s only the tip of the iceberg on PD. Rather than try to figure out who in your life has a PD, I’d suggest you read a good book. About Roxanne is my latest. Snag your copy here.
