Divorcing a narc, what to expect

Hello you all, I am seeking help!
Pardon me this is going to be a long thread with much detail.
My husband and I got married 20 years ago after 1 year of long distance dating. We have a 30 year age gap, I moved to his country because he didn't want to live in mine.
The marriage was full of rollercoasters since the beginning. My husband lacked boundaries. Every time we had an argument ...

Something I've noticed about my older brother

Ever since I was a young kid my brother and I have always had fights. They could have been over a number of different things but whenever he absolutely blew his top it was due to one particular subject. He would explode and beat the ever loving heck out of me. I could call him anything else under the sun but this one particular subject and all would be fine. He would get into fights ...

Dating someone with BPD

Hi. I recently started dating a woman (36) with borderline. From what I've picked up, she started self mutilation (it's bad) at the age of 14 and has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals until she was 34. She stopped self-harming and she's doing a lot better, or so she says. We've been on a date some time ago, it went pretty fine, but at the end of the date we got into a ...

How do I deal with my DID friend?

Hey there, first time writing in here. I hope it will also be the last since the reason I'm writing is an interpersonal problem with a friend of mine who happens to have DID. I'm feeling like a really bad friend overall and the only way I can hope to get better is to make peace with the doubt in my mind.

I feel like I need to give you a bit of context and ...

Super observant person who makes me feel dumb

I didn't know which category to post this in. It's something my boyfriend does that I have not experienced with anyone before. He's the most observant person I've ever known, constantly noticing everything going on around him, whether it's in a store or restaurant or outdoors or driving. I've gotten him to stop constantly verbalizing everything he notices, cause it gets old quick. I always considered myself very observant, but he outdoes me constantly. As ...

I need to know what I experienced

I’ve recently come out of an abusive relationship that lasted 7 years. During those 7 years I witnessed many disturbing things, some of which clearly pointed to some sort of mental health issue but I never found out exactly what was going on. I’m hoping someone on here might be able to shed some light on what I lived through. I will list out some of the things that happened during the course of those ...

Dear avoidants, please...

Dear avoidants, I need to understand. When you push your loved ones away, what do you really want? Do you know what you want?
Do you realise how much it hurts?
Do you ever miss the people you pushed away?
Do you ever regret the love they gave you, or you remember it like a nuisance?

Need insight into minor child behaviors and solutions

My daughter is 16 years old and has been diagnosed with many things; some diagnoses she embraces and some she rejects. She is not a diagnosis, but a cluster of symptoms, many of which resemble traits of Borderline Personality Disorder.

She has severe social anxiety and had been diagnosed with ADHD. These are labels she embraces. Everything else she does not.

Living with her is like hell on earth for me. She has many triggers ...
