I'm learning to be a single mom again after 9 years of being married to someone with NPD! I never knew the impact it would have on our family. I'm stronger now that I know what signs to look for. I haven't been served with any official papers, but yet my ex's status shows "divorced." What the heck? We've been done for about 5 months, but really? that was quick! I'm strong willed and I know what my heart desires, but I'm tired of all the lies and crap and the fake shows and the "poor me, look at me" attitude he always gave. He chased all of my friends away because of his anger outbursts! We got kicked out of our apartment because he went off on the landlord. He seriously thinks he did nothing wrong. I'm the one that would always end up dealing with the consequences to his actions. I was the one that had to tell everyone sorry even though I wasn't the one who caused the problem to begin with. I know I've had my share of troubles, but I didn't get arrested and put in jail for anything violent like he did. And on my birthday none the less. I guess I'm more frustrated than I thought. It doesn't help when he has isolated my daughter and I. It has taken me months to even find a place to live. I also have our two dogs as well as my daughter and I to support on a very low income job. Our options for housing are extremely low right now. But I have a friend who given us a chance to get back on our feet again, and I am very thankful for her.
Tell me about it.
