Welcome to my blog "Life After Narcissistic Abuse."
I'd like to preface by saying I am not a mental health professional. I am however, a student of narcissism. I grew up in a home with an abusive narcissistic mother who even after I had left had kept on abusing me emotionally and verbally from a distance.
In January of 2015, I was in shambles after a lifetime of abuse and began weekly therapy with a psychologist. Through her help, many reading material resources, and online support groups, I have learned to stop blaming myself for the ways I was mistreated. I finally have a name for what she was and have learned to dissect her psychosis and its effects on me. I currently admin a private Facebook support group for Children of Narcissists, and spend each day learning as much as I can about these issues in an attempt to better myself, and to help others with experiences like mine to understand and heal.
