Dump him forthwith and avoid his supporters. Also don't expect any explanation or apologies from him; some things are best left unsaid lest you should be charmed and roped in for more narcissistic abuse. Go kick butt!

My Mood: Welcome to the Narcissistic Personality Disorder forum

Default Re: Welcome to the Narcissistic Personality Disorder forum

Hello
I don't know where to start, so I'll just jump in. I came to this site to find support for myself, because I have come to believe my 36 year old daughter has Narssessisitic Personality Disorder.

Her situation was a perfect storm to develop the disorder. Her father was narcissistic and she was everything to him. Of course, because she was important to him, she had to be important to everyone, in the world. This went beyond the normal father loves and is proud of his daughter. And me, I just went along with it all to keep the peace. At 3, her father had a massive brain hemorrhage.

Raising her was like constantly walking on egg shells. It was so difficult to correct her in anything, cause cause she would perceive it as a threat as to how she saw things.

Now she is 36 years old. She gets so enraged for what I see as nothing. She got mad, for example, cause I did housework. I was ignoring her. There is no defending myself to her or rationalizing with her. And once things die down and she needs something or just wants attention, she comes to me like nothing happened. This is how it's been

I physically can't do this anymore. I have heart failure and this has too many devastating effects on me. And I can not go on.

Now I know, and understanding, my responsibility in all this. And I have allowed this to happen partly because of the guilt. So please don't go pointing fingers and blaming. I am pass that now. I have put up boundaries -small ones but boundaries and she is not happy with me. I know she is totally unhappy with herself and her life. She has a mega ego but no self esteem and I love her so much.

help?

My ex has npd, and I am concerned that my teenager son is showing signs. He creates lies and believes them. My kids always feel a need to check in with their Dad 15 times a day. How can I help my kids

Default Re: Welcome to the Narcissistic Personality Disorder forum

Hi I'm new to this forum but I really need some help. I've been inactive relationship for nearly 2 years with a man I now believe has NPD. I've read loads of stuff about it and all the things mentioned sounds a hell of a lot like him and the way he behaves but I need to be sure because I don't know if it's just plain old jealousy and insecurity or real narcissism.
He's very jealous and true to control me even down to how I wear my clothes , I'm not allowed to talk to certain men at work ( we work together) he's always accusing me of cheating , he doesn't like me going out without him , he belittles me and makes out I'm incapable and that I can't manage with out him. He believes he's the best at everything and talks over me if I'm talking in crowed . When he sees I'm upset it's like he looks right through me and doesn't seem to care. He looks down on some of the management at our work place too and I think he feels threatened by other men in power or attractive men. There is lots more but it would fill this entire page !!
I want to end the relationship but I feel awful because he's done a lot for me financially. Please advise if I'm right or being unfair. Thank you
