We learned that Tara “Rodham” Dublin is a “Sexist, Misandrist, Entitled, Cunty, Horrible Excuse for a Mother.” Then she lost her shit due to “being called on carpet for being a nutbag.” We thought we’d heard the last of her when we wrote about the real reason why she’ll never marry again, NOW, this batshit crazy feminist is showing clear signs of a mental illness known as Delusional Disorder.
I knew the first time I had the unfortunate experience of crossing her path online that she was “touched” as they say. I had hoped that her most recent foibles would have caused her to take a step back, evaluate her bad behavior, and make adjustments that would start her down the road to positive life choices. After all, she’s a mother. There are kids to consider.
On November 28th, she wrote an article on Medium titled, “MAYBE YOU’VE SEEN WHAT CYBERHARASSMENT LOOKS LIKE. THIS IS HOW IT FEELS.”
Yes, she published it with the title in all caps.
Apparently I was being far too charitable. This female, (I was going to say lady, but we all know that isn’t a befitting title for Tara), is just two bricks shy of being full on schizophrenic.
I won’t go so far as to say she’s schizophrenic at this juncture, but Delusional Disorder is as apt a diagnosis for her as evil describes Satan.
From the experts on Delusional Disorder:
Delusional disorder, previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness called a “psychosis” in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined. The main feature of this disorder is the presence of delusions, unshakable beliefs in something untrue or not based on reality. People with delusional disorder generally experience non-bizarre delusions, which involve situations that could occur in real life, such as being followed, poisoned, deceived, conspired against, or loved from a distance. These delusions usually involve the misinterpretation of perceptions or experiences. In reality, however, the situations are either not true at all or highly exaggerated.
In her writing, she details how persecuted she feels as a result of her own inappropriate behavior.She fails to recognize that it was her behavior that was wrong, not the other people involved. She sees herself as a victim, when she was actually the perpetrator.
This all could have been avoided if she had made the choice to not post photos of someone’s house online, and then stop to make obscene gestures out in front of it because she didn’t like a political election sign she saw on the property.
Lets take a look at a few of the passages in her rambling writing which demonstrate her mental illness:
But when you’re living in fear, when it comes from the outside and gets inside of you and takes residence in your brain and chest cavity, when it weighs you down and keeps you from experiencing anything positive, that is something else entirely. When it paralyzes an otherwise energetic and social person to stay hidden in their home for nine straight days. When it adds more than you can fathom to a depression you were already struggling with.
She’s in fear of what? Someone on the internet will tell her to sod off? Tara has clearly either made up, or exaggerated any threat towards her, if there are any at all. She’s delusional. No one gives a shit about seeking her out for nefarious reasons. People just want her to be more self aware, and if she can’t be, to just shut up.
The following are the different categories of Delusional Disorder. After each one that applies to Tara, I will snip a part of her writing which fits with the category.
Erotomanic: Someone with this type of delusional disorder believes that another person, often someone important or famous, is in love with him or her. The person might attempt to contact the object of the delusion, and stalking behavior is not uncommon.
Although Tara has not professed her “love” for Hillary Clinton, she to this day seems obsessed with her. She still keeps Hillary’s maiden name as her own middle name. I think Erotomanic Delusion still fits Tara because of her actions which seem to indicate the delusion that Hillary is connected to her in real life.
I wouldn’t be surprised if at some point we learn that Tara has actually tried to make some kind of contact with Hillary, or at some point will. If I were Hillary Clinton I would beef up her security.
UPDATE: Not long after I published this someone sent me a link to her blog where she’s posted an Instagram photo of her “13 year old son’s” letter to Hillary Clinton beseeching her to let “his mom” meet her because she’s been so angry after she lost the election.
Tara posing as her son begging to meet Hillary Clinton is just creepy. There is no way a 13 year old boy wrote that.
She also seems to have an unhealthy attachment to the late David Bowie.
Grandiose: A person with this type of delusional disorder has an over-inflated sense of worth, power, knowledge, or identity. The person might believe he or she has a great talent or has made an important discovery.
It’s clear Tara has an inflated opinion of herself. Humble is not a word used to describe her. (i.e. a Twitter handle and blog called “Tara Dublin Rocks.” But this delusion goes even further as she views herself as having skills that are higher than they actually are. Her rambling self absorbed writing is one example. When she says:
I also learned that after seven years, my former radio station finally put someone back on during the midday, and that someone isn’t me, but some nobody girl from nowhere. So I have to live with that, knowing that someone else has my dream job that I’d do better than anyone…
I keep hoping for the big break everyone tells me I deserve. A radio gig. A voiceover gig. A writing gig. This untapped goldmine of talent going to waste. I’ve been joking that Lifetime should buy the rights to my story because it would make for one hell of a Television Movie For Women, and I’m actually not kidding so much about that anymore.
She didn’t get the radio job back because more than likely they found her to be as problematic as do most everyone who crosses her path. But she just can’t see it. I’m glad she found a job in the “service industry.” No shame in that. If she wants to keep her job she’ll have to get some help with her mental deficits or she will be jobless once again.
Jealous: A person with this type of delusional disorder believes that his or her spouse or sexual partner is unfaithful.
Her husband actually did cheat on her, so this definition may not fit Tara unless she was jealous with him to begin with. I wouldn’t doubt that she was.
Persecutory: People with this type of delusional disorder believe that they (or someone close to them) are being mistreated, or that someone is spying on them or planning to harm them. It is not uncommon for people with this type of delusional disorder to make repeated complaints to legal authorities.
See above re cops at her house. Her whole dilemma started when she hailed a cop on the road to arrest or cite a guy for following her when she herself was the one who initiated harassment. She falls well within the definition of persecutory delusional.
Somatic: A person with this type of delusional disorder believes that he or she has a physical defect or medical problem.
This category fits Tara too:
Money stress, life stress, election stress. PTSD from cyberharassment for sure.
That she compares her self inflicted pain to those who’s lives have actually been touched by PTSD is one of the most objectionable elements of her delusions. Her depression is so severe that those around her should be authentically concerned.
Mixed: People with this type of delusional disorder have two or more of the types of delusions listed above.
She demonstrates symptoms of all categories except one. And even the “Jealous” category may fit as well. At this point we don’t know.
The rest of Tara’s writing goes from one point to another, rambling in directions that don’t apply to her current situation other than how they reveal more about her narcissism. Most of it is merely Tara playing the victim while seeking sympathy from unknowing internet simpletons.
There was one passage that gave me pause. The words were so striking that if I were a friend or family member, I would be intervening in her and her children’s lives immediately.
When I could sleep, it would only be in these three-hour bursts that felt more like naps, and it wasn’t restful sleep at all. My dreams would be full of those awful tweets, or the Chode’s face, or I’d be in unimaginably awful situations. One stress dream that stays with me: I was standing on top of the Empire State Building, holding an infant wrapped in a blue blanket. I knew it was my older son, who is actually 17, but in the dream he was a baby. And a faceless presence pointing a gun at me was forcing me to jump off, still holding my newborn son in my arms. “Just jump,” said a voice. “You’ll be fine.”
Tara may not see herself as sick. Most individuals with Delusional Disorder have poor insight and don’t see themselves as mentally ill or sick. Onlookers or those close to her in her life may just believe that this is just Tara being Tara and won’t make her get help.
To those people I beg you, please think about the children involved. They may be teenagers or slightly younger, but there is still the possibility that great harm can come to them at Tara’s hands.
Will the stress get too much causing Tara to snap? Instead of holding one of her children as baby and jumping off a high building or bridge, will she listen to that voice in her head and do some other form of harm to them while she’s also harming herself?
Are you absolutely convinced that Tara is okay and she won’t do something to harm herself or someone else? Possibly one of her children?
Her writing indicates her mental illness seems to be escalating. She’s not eating. She’s not sleeping. She seems paralyzed with fear. Can she care for her children in this state? I hope someone intervenes before it’s too late, at least for her children’s sake if not for hers.
Perhaps her ex-husband will read this and take action to save the children from further mental and/or physical harm if Tara won’t help herself. We can only hope.
Tara, if you’re reading this, please get some help. Call a Crisis line, or go to the nearest ER if you are having bad thoughts. You may have alienated many people from your life, so it may be up to you to save yourself before you do something catastrophic to yourself or your children. There is no shame in admitting you’re sick with a mental illness. In fact it’s another protected group you can add yourself to!
Just think of all the ways being openly mentally ill can benefit you and send even more attention your way.
But at the end of the day, and if your own ego being stroked isn’t enough to get you to get help for yourself, think of your children. You are in no shape to care for them as their mother right now. They need to be with a fully functional person. Right now Tara, you are not that person.
