    I Have A Narcissistic Father

    My father is unbelievable. As a child I thought I was worthless, only to discover his problem was not that he was a horrendous person, but he was mentally ill.  Taking a look at the outcome of this has brought up a lot of emotional pain both with my inner child and his actions...

    To my father, my abuser

    for 25 years: I am writing to inform you that I know exactly who and what you are. Additionally, despite your many years of bullying & brainwashing, despite all the innocence and potential you robbed from me, you no longer have any control over me. I'm no longer afraid of you...

    Maybe you guys can help me sort out what's

    happening with my family. I'm not really sure if my father is narcissistic, or if he has some other problem, but I know that he definitely has a problem. I'll try to keep this concise, since this story is 22 years long. A little background: I'm the oldest of three daughters...

    I am dating a woman who has a child from a

    narcissistic ex. He has been classified as such by a therapist and psychiatrist, and was very emotionally abusive with my girlfriend when they were together. should we be worried about the 4 year old girl being with him? What harm can he do and how can we counteract this?

    I Need Someone Who Can Relate To My Story

    My father and my mother are narcissistic,

    and I'll try to explain how I realized of it and how it's still affecting me. I went to live abroad, my ex came for a while, he was studying and at the end he was just living and doing nothing, I was paying everything during three years, and I got tired of this abusive...

    I joined EP upon reading a story about a woman

    who had a Narcissistic father. Growing up with mum, dad and my younger brother always seemed normal. Mostly, at least. At 6 he told me about what sex was. At 7 I remember him coaxing me into watching a scary movie, The Others with him even though he knew I was scared. My dad...

    Oh, where to begin...

    I'm not sure if he has NPD or if he's just very narcissistic, but he's definitely not an easy person to live with. I experienced abuse as a child from my mother. My father, who was/is a college president, was gone a lot of the time for work. He knew my mother was mentally ill...
