    I have been married for 22 years, we are separated now,. I need help understanding If I am a victim or abuser or both and likewise, relating to spouse. I become very confused sometimes.


    Hello, I feel the same way DeAnna. I’ve been married for 21 years and am just opening my eyes and realizing that this is not how I want to live. I’ve been miserable for years feeling it was all my fault. I’ve been watching and listening to videos and am finally going to see a counselor. But what if the counselor is not familiar with narcissistic personality disorder?


    for 26 years in my marriage, finally divorced. it is like living in prison. he is a projector, a manipulator, gaslighting, covert narcissists person in my life. it is very exhausting and frustrated daily. i have been going to therapist on and off for 3 years. now he used my kids and my families to turn on me like i am crazy and etc. i finally cut off all comm with my kids. they all sounds so scripted and same words that i heard over the many years. i am at peace now without comm.


    Have you seen the documentary Erasing Family? The forms of the silent treatment you describe are common strategies of parents who have personality disorder to get a child to align with them against the other parent. https://erasingfamily.org/ has more information and links to view the documentary. Would you be interested in writing an article or being interviewed for our resources after you view the film?


    I can’t get this to work. I would very much like to hear it if possible. I tried from my pc and from my android phone. thought you would appreciate knowing it isn’t working. Thanks,
