Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Paranoid Personality Disorder
There are personality disorders which can be characterized as illnesses which may cause reason for violence or aggressive behavior. Some of these illnesses can be put into categories based on one’s lifespan and some are not classified based on a particular age. The etiology is quite unknown, but there have been some reports of genetics having an influence in the development, although there is nothing for sure. Family history and environmental issues have a tendency to play a part in exacerbating the symptoms for a patient. If there are one or more family members, especially if one of those members is a twin, there is a huge change there will be another member of the family to have the same disorder.
The end:
.....hope. If one has patience and love, the illness will not overcome this.
