Welcome… and I’m sorry we have to meet on a forum such as this.
I would like to invite you to join me on my journey, as I navigate healing from the abuses I suffered due to my spouse’s Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Narcissistic abuse is real – and it is a form of domestic violence. Most abused spouses will suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or even Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). It is vital for victims to find a trauma recovery specialist to help on the healing journey.
Emotional and verbal abuse are often considered “hidden” abuse because the affects are not visible.
The goal of this website it to bring awareness to the fall-out of being in a relationship with someone who has a Cluster B Personality Disorder, and to give the hope of healing to the women who have suffered abuse at the hands of their spouse/partner.
In addition to bringing awareness to the trauma brought on by these relationships, I will help you navigate your healing with words of wisdom, examples of what healing looks like, the emotional roller-coaster and more. Additionally, I will be seeking to interview experts who will help you, too.
The suicide rate among domestic violence victims is very high. Some are women killed by the very hands of the partner who was supposed to be their equal and protector. Some women have extreme mental illness. The affects of psychological damage are so profound that this is truly a “mind, body, spirit” healing. In essence, it is as if the disordered partner has killed their spouse’s very soul, along with their memories, hopes and dreams.
A mentor told me as I began my healing, “You now know what you are dealing with… you received a second chance – a chance that another woman did not get. Use it – embrace it.” And with that, she encouraged me to help you!
Note: All comments on the blog will be closely monitored. This is a place for healing and sharing, not a place to be rude, abusive, and, for lack of a better word – narcissistic. We will all play nice, or you are bounced out. It’s that simple. Boundary setting is a must when dealing with narcissists. And those are the rules on my site.
