I've seen a few nons on this board who are clearly mentally unbalanced, but I think most of them just want to talk about it. Some people find a therapist. Some people have a family and support network they can talk to. Some people have neither of these things and look for something online.
A lot of people seem eager to call themselves a victim of something. I agree it's pathetic, but that's not going to stop them from doing it. I can see why children of NPD parents (not just "narcissistic" but full blown NPD) might consider themselves as much, but there's no excuse for a grown adult staying in a bad relationship long enough to feel all victimy.
People also throw around "narcissist" pretty lightly. A lot of victim blogs are full of black and white thinking and playing the victim. Some of those people have crept onto this board in the past. There's a support thread that I posted in a couple times and was attacked by one such person. It was pretty pathetic.
