And pray God stands in the middle. Jay, if you can get the narcissist to admit they need help, it is possible for one to receive help. The trick is getting one to admit that. Wish everyone the best! You all deserve better. He will never be real. He will never be genuine and we all deserve that. Thank you so much for this article. I have been married to my husband for 22 years. I have never been able to figure his angry,demeaning personality out until a marriage counselor said the word narcissist.
It is a word I never heard of, but it fits my husband perfectly. It has been so difficult living with him and has torn me down emotionally. I think he has PTSD to go along with it. I am searching on what to do. I am totally fed up with him and his ways and making me feel invisible. All he does is dress in his fine clothes and tilt his hat to the side like a pimp. I had never heard the word either until the therapy we both saw during our divorce introduced me to it.
When I started doing my research on narcissism it all made so much sense to me. I wish you the best in whatever steps you choose to take. OMG, I am married to a man that has narcissistic behavior disorder and he is a pastor, but gets angry at any given time.
My husband is the police chief. I tried to go to a womens shelter once and they turned me away because of who my husband is. Never mind the bruises I was sporting. I have been You Never Talked About Me for 38 years and only recently realised that my husband is a narcissist after somebody mentioned the word NPD. I have done extensive reading of NPD and now know he is definitely a narcissist. How could I have been so stupid?
All these years I forgave, trusted, hoped that things would change. All the broken promises, the raging temper, the threats. He started his tricks just 3 months after our marriage. But I kept on believing. And now that I know and has confronted him with the facts, he is threatening me. He does not want to divorce.
Says he will refuse to sign anything. I feel dead inside. Belinda, just read your post and it is exactly what I needed to hear…. I too have been married to narcissist for 38 years… And just realized that this is the situation I am in and if I am to get any better, I must make a decision to stay or let go… Things are slowly getting worse. I too feel dead on the inside… I am so tired all the time… But just reading your comments has made me feel so much better… Is there any way we can communicate privately… I really do need some one to talk to.
Hi Linda. I would love to communicate. I am not on facebook or twitter. I have been frustrated for the past 2 years with my two kids living without my husband who surprisingly left home with a girl named Rose. One faithful day a friend of mine came visiting and I told You Never Talked About Me about the situation I am in for the past two years, she then told me about High priest tokubo that he is a very powerful man, at first I never wanted to believe her because I have spent a lot going to different places but she convinced me, so I had no choice because I really need my husband back.
So we contacted High priest tokubo who told me all I needed to do and i give him a trial. But the greatest joy in me today is that High priest tokubo was able to bring my husband back to me and now we are living happily as never before. Thanks to you High priest tokubo If you have problems of any kind regarding relationship I will advise you to contact him via his private email bellow: highpristtokubo at gmail dot com.
Just been discarded, over 12 weeks no word. Now understand probably for the best as,After 16 years of bold faced lies and mind games now have seen the light! After reading a lot of material can see we may be in for a bumpy ride. But forarmed is forwarned so l say bring it on! We have sorted out most of the financial mess except the stuff in his name and the people who need to know are on the watch, so bring it on.
I am waiting for your next fantastic bunch of lies and rubbish. Laughing through the tears … I wish I could get discarded. I own my home outright. I could easily just walk away. In my state, eviction proceedings take 30 days. Yep, he was kind, compassionate, good-looking, well-to-do, and it was all a sham. Of course, love died after the first screaming, howling, sobbing tantrum. How could it not? Stop being mad and move on. Mood disorder? Why are you stuck? If you stay what will you be teaching your daughter about who she should be treated my a man?
Do you want her to grow up, make a wrong choice and think she has no other option but to live a miserable life? Get control of your life and move on! I was married to a narcissist as well and I felt the same way you are feeling. He is playing mind games with you and messing you up mentally until he gets total control over you.
He will make you believe that you are the problem messes up yourself esteem to the not. He logged into my iphone,whatsapp, Facebook a,d all my emails and changed all passwords. He even went to the extent of developing fake whatsapp conversations. He started holding conversations with my friends on my Facebook account to say the least.
He abused me physically, verbally. Take that bold step and leave now, because narcissists can never change! The earlier you accept this fact, the better for you. You are talking about my ex husband!
They indeed are all alike…! It took me two years between the time i decided i should leave and the time i had the strengh to make it happen. Two years where i lost 15 kgs, lost my health, my smile…everything! Get back up,dust the dirt off your shoulders and live!!!!!!! You Only Live Once! OMG, exactly!!!!! I had vulnerably requested: 1 make me feel safe and protected; 2 affirm me. But we have kids and just found out he has an aggressive form of prostate cancer.
But honey, you are not locked in. Are waiting till he dies to move on? Get this straight, he wont change! Do what you have to do to get your sanity back. You need that closure whilst he is alive. But then again, do not forget about your human side as well. He needs you but your life comes first.
Even tried it with his friends — mutual acquaintances. I filed for divorce — dragged it out for l0 mos and he convinced me to drop it. So be sure YOU get something out of it. Takes a very strong, independent person to be able to deal with a narc.
They are empty, black, holes — fun if you give them what they want. But beyond that? You see, I too am married to a narcissist. She would fly into a rage for me just saying no to her. One time fracturing my eye socket for saying no to taking her picture. After all the affairs, physical and emotional abuse, she would become very, sweet, loving and charming and I would think things would change, but they never did.
It was just all an act to keep me around. Thank you all! Most husbands are fine people. You are not safe! She is a text book example of an abuser. Good luck!
Hi Matthew, and welcome to this haven. And guess what, when that happens, she will lie through her teeth that it was self defense and you wont be alive to defend yourself.

After 5 months he starter showing a brutal and cold personality. Being so in love with him literally almost destroyed my life in all different aspects including loosing most of my friends and getting into financial and other kind of troubles.
