About The Narcissist’s Wife…

Hello. If you’re new around these parts, allow me to introduce myself properly. My name is Story Lynne… but, I’m better known as The Narcissist’s Wife.
 
This is me…
TheNarcissistsWife.com - About The Narcissist's Wife
I gotta tell ya, I’ve  tried writing this page about 100 times- and throughout this process I’ve learned something: I’m not good at writing ‘About Me’ pages. At all. Seriously.
So, I’ve decided that I’m just going to write the basics and hope that I cover the appropriate bases in the process. Here goes…
I’ve been married to narcissist for about 10 years, and am now in the process of divorcing him. I have four children, two of which I share with my narc-hub.
I have been the target of narcissistic abuse  for longer than I care to think about, and after continuous escalation over the past few years (to the point of physical abuse), I finally decided I’d had enough of the pain and degradation. By that point, I barely recognized myself. I was physically, and emotionally, sick: a mere 92 lbs., near-agoraphobic, anxious, suffering regular panic attacks, depressed, emotionally raw… and etc. I felt helpless, and hopeless.

Something had to give.

So… I did what I do best. I started researching, and reading. I eventually tripped over “Narcissistic Personality Disorder”, and it was like the camera on my life suddenly came into sharp focus. Finally, everything made perfect sense. I knew that- now that I had a name for the demon I was wrestling with- I could find a way to beat it. I could find a way out of the pain and confusion. And, that’s exactly what I did.
I spent years studying trauma, psychology, personality disorders, PTSD/C-PTSD, energetic healing, emotional intelligence, leadership skills, communication skills, trust, intimacy, boundaries, relationship building, and a lot more… (and I still continue to study). I learned how to heal my emotional trauma, and how to effectively handle the ongoing abuse/harassment without further trauma.
Bonus: I also gained a good 30 lbs. (I’m damn near curvy now!)
I started this website, at first, to purge the poison in my mind. It slowly evolved into a platform for me to share my experiences, and my lessons learned, in the hopes of helping women, like you, to heal their own trauma and take back control of their lives. I know the Hell you’ve been through, and I understand the pain, frustration, and confusion, you’re feeling. I also know, from personal experience, that you don’t have to feel that way forever.
I hope that the information you find here can help you to start taking steps in the direction of your own healing and, ultimately, your freedom from abuse!

Mostly, I want you to know that- You’re not alone.

And, you don’t have to suffer in silence anymore. There is a way out.

 Oh… and, one more thing:

It is my highest honor, to serve you.

    I’m 48 and I left my narc husband 2 months ago. I was married to him for 26 years. It took me over 10 years of part time college and then nursing school to be able to support myself so I could leave the son of a bitch. I have 4 children. My husband has NPD. Life is short, I didn’t want to look back one-day and say “why didn’t you leave?” I’m happy and very proud of myself!

    I just read your total write up. I’m trying to create a plan also. Financially. Is there any tips you can send privately to tell me what I should do for an exit plan./ divorce. I don’t know if and when I ask for a divorce. It isn’t something I plan on doing for at least until my 16 year old are in college.

    • I intend to start writing A LOT more about coping & exit strategies, and also, the only things a person could do to possibly improve their situation.

      I’ll be posting the next one today or tomorrow! Thanks for reading! 🙂

  • Is there a way I can sign up to get your new posts by email? Hitting the “Follow” button at the top of my screen just adds you to my reader, and I’m afraid I’ll miss you since I follow so many blogs. (That is, I want to add you to my “elite” list!)

You know you want to say something. Go on....
