No Longer AbusedIt has been a year since I severed my tie to the Narcissist. I am so much better. I can't believe how much that man drained the spirit out of me.
But he didn't get it all. Like a wilted plant, tended to, I have revived. We each must find our own way, with whatever help we can find. My Psychologist and Psychiatrist have helped me with counseling and meds, but I did it.
A year later, I am functioning, thriving and looking forward. At 71, I have repaired my physical self to an extant I find hard to believe. I have been in
an intensive wellness program for about 5 months, during which time I have lost near 20 lbs, discontinued my diabetes meds, lowered my
blood pressure meds and am remarkably fit. I can climb a flight of stairs 2 at a time!!! I feel 10 years younger. I became a group leader for a
caregivers support group for Alzheimers.
I still remain shy about new relationships with men. I always wear my makeup in case I find Mr. Right.
You can do it too. But you must cut that relationship off, cold turkey. Have no contact, if possible. Do not go back. They do not change.
