I am, by no means, an expert on narcissism. I am not a writer. I am, however, a woman who has been through an emotionally abusive marriage (of nearly 7 years) to a narcissist. I write this blog in secret. I have made every attempt to hide my identity, both for safety from my ex, and for the privacy of my daughter, my ex, and other family members. I write to heal the wounds of living with a narcissist, and for support in co-parenting with a narcissist. Most of all, I hope that I can save others from marrying a narcissist and can help outsiders understand why people choose to stay with such abusive people.
