  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!


    • Julie, that is a tough position to be in. He is an adult and as a mother you can only really be there for him should he come to you. I think the risk of saying something is greater than the risk of not saying something. Only you know your relationship with your son. If he does come to you, you will have an arsenal of information to share with him. Best~ Bree

  3. 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.

    • Hi Stephanie, you are not alone. Hopefully you will be able to participate in the narcissistic abuse virtual summit this Sat. 29th. Join forums on Facebook if you haven’t already. They have given many the support and strength to leave abusive relationships. Find a therapist to help you work on your own self-awareness. All those things will help you find your strength. You deserve to be happy. ~Bree


    • 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
