No More Narchole

Narcissism: One of the few conditions where the patient is left alone and everyone is treated.



Brown Matter

“The three great essentials to achieve anything worth while are: Hard work, Stick-to-itiveness, and Common Sense.” ~ Thomas Alba Edison (American Inventor, 1847-1931)

I think I’m going to throw the parenting common-sense book out the window. Apparently, common sense and consideration have no room in parenting with someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD.) I should know that by now; however, for the sake of my child, I seem to be hanging to a small thread of unfounded hope.

Ann, a fellow blogger, shared one of her latest experiences with her narcissistic husband. Reading her blog post reminded me of so many things that happened to me with my  own husband.

“Strange, I thought, how you can be living your dreams and your nightmares at the very same time.” ~ Ransom Riggs, American author

Blame and Responsibility

I’m letting the image below speak for itself.


Good luck trying to make him or her see it differently.

Filing Income Tax Jointly for The Last Time

“Death, taxes, and childbirth! There’s never any convenient time for any of them.” ~ Margaret Mitchell

With the deadline for filing 2017 income tax returns fast approaching, I wanted to share my (I hope) last experience filing jointly with my narc.

And then she said “bye”

One of the things I have not mentioned because I have not had time to get around to do so is the epic battle I had with my daughter’s father concerning our daughter’s autism treatment and therapies.
