  1. Happy to have found your website. As the Mother of a 22 year old son in the middle of a relationship that is described in your articles, I’m very curious if you have any advice for my husband and me. I do not want to be an enabler to my son’s abuse yet I do not want to risk losing him and his potential wife and their children by speaking out.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

  2. I am so grateful I found this website. Its been a little over 4 months since I left this time and most days I want to just sit around and cry. He and I still talk and if we don’t I feel like I’m losing my mind. I feel I don’t have to see him but I have to talk to him, I seriously feel like an addict. I know I need to do the no contact thing, I just feel like I’m losing my mind when I don’t talk to him. Every conversation turns into an argument and I feel like I’m on a roller coaster that I can’t get off. I know I’m not alone and that helps I just wish I could stick to the no contact.
    It has helped reading others stories, I just hope in time I can walk away and not look back.

    1. I feel the same way…makes me sick sometimes…and your right I feel it is a sickness/addition on our part also…. I do a lot of praying (again) reaching out is the on of the best/only ways to free ourselves….just wanted to let you know someone feels the same way….god bless

  3. I Love this site however I am not sure if my ex is a narcissist I keep blaming myself. I’ve been with him for 12 years and it has been a tumultuous relationship, he was physically abusive at the beginning that stopped as I left him, but returned. Following that he criticised me made sarcastic comments he kept chipping away at me and I was constantly walking on eggshells and my dog was so afraid of him. 2 years ago my parents died and I was busy clearing their house and was unable to see him as I was out of county he started seeing someone else he told me he’d “moved on” eventually I returned to him for 18 months but things became worse. I had a health crisis and told him I felt really ill he told me I was “attention seeking” I told him to leave my home. Within 12 weeks he had returned to this woman whilst I am struggling to get over him, I am thinking of him with her constantly, please please can somebody help clarify what is going on with me and whether you think he is a narcissist. Thankyou

  4. Thank you very much for your article “The 8 Most Common Narc-Sadistic Conversation Control Tactics” I did indeed think you wrote it specifically for my situation. Having grown up with a mother who narcissistic and border-line, I am really coming to understand the difficult truth that I continue to pick these people in my love relationships. The person I am with now is a classic narcissist. Some are more insidious and covert. I am glad to have found this site.
