I'm 58. Mother Narcissist just died, Narcissist Enabler Step Dad mad I confronted him and "outed" my N-mom. Him too. They both abused me and now I'm in my third marriage to yet another Narcissist.
If anyone wants to judge me-knock yourself out. I HAVE SURVIVED MUCH MORE THAN I'M RELATING... FIRST HUSBAND severe batterer. (15 year relationship-3 kids, him drugging and screwing around on me a lot).
Second Husband 19 years of "CHRISTIAN HELL" FORMER ASSEMBLY OF GOD MINISTER!) BLEAH!" Closet Sex Tormentor Freak. 2 miscarried babies with HIM. He did a lot of SECRET TORMENTING AND TRIED TO LEAVE ME PENNILESS. (God helped me I got a small cash settlement. HE WORKS FOR NASA. AND HE'S A STALKER.)
Then Husband NUMBER 3. Now 88. We have been together now about two years. I've been through UTTER HELL! He is lovable. But, VERY CONTROLLING AND CUNNING. HIS PAL DRUNKARD ATTORNEY. WICKED ABUSER and his wife got me attacked, slandered and abused repeatedly by hospital doctors and staff.
The horror of trying to save HIM WHEN ALL OF THEM WERE TRYING TO KILL HIM OFF FOR $$$! I WAS CLEARED AFTER I WAS Investigated, FOR ALMOST A YEAR. THE LAWYER BUDDY REPEATEDLY TRIED TO SET ME UP.
AT THE HOSPITAL WITH POLICE STANDING AT THE READY(his greedy attorney pal and his dead former wife's attorney "pal" working together against me on behalf of the FORMER stepsons.
THEY'RE ALL MAD THEY GOT LEFT OUT OF THE $$$ AND STYLED ME SLANDEROUS AS A GOLD DIGGER. I didn't ask for any of this!!!
I THOUGHT he loved me for me. Turns out he did but he also had a plan to use me. He admitted he did. THAT HURTS THE WORST. I'VE WORKED SO HARD TO SAVE HIS LIFE. THREE SERIOUS HOSPITALIZATIONS in a year. Many CRISES.
Even after those trials, I am EXCLUSIVELY AT HIS BIDDING. LITTLE FREE TIME AND AGING RAPIDLY FROM ALL THIS HORROR. I STILL HAVE A VIRULENT EX HUSBAND who tried to help set me up and many DEBTS FROM MY DIVORCE AND LITTLE HOPE FOR A FUTURE OF PEACE AND HAPPINESS.
I'm just surviving and helping him survive. HE'S PROBABLY A CLASSIC NARCISSIST AND I'M HIS "MIRROR" RAISED TO BE USED.
