In a Trance for 52 years. How Did She Do it?

I have recently discovered my mother is a covert narcissist who has caused appalling damage to all of the children’s relationships. I was designated scapegoat, but cannot remember details of just how she worked her magic.
I believed that I was mentally unstable, destined for failure, unattractive and could not see a future. Everything has been an uphill struggle.
The only way I woke up is that I had a terrible workplace accident, where I ...

I cut loose somewhat reluctantly, but to this day I don't feel I had a lot of choice. I'm fine with the outcome, as my life improved a lot, but since then I have often wondered whether my ...

Hello all, this is my first post. I'm Italian so my English is not perfect.

I'll try to be as concise as I can describing my 6 months long relationship with what I highly suspect being a person with HPD (she is not diagnosed). I would love to hear your opinions on this situation, if it's similar to something you already experienced.

I broke up with her recently and I'm feeling exhausted, this post also ...

Is this a delusion?

I have a sister who is going through a rough patch right now. She claims she was indoctrinated to hate herself since she was little through a "twinning"-like process. She believes teachers purposely sat girls next to her that looked almost identical to her, but only they were pretty and she was not. Everyone would say they were like twins and she said a teacher held up a picture of the other girl on picture ...
