I am a self-help junkie, former advocate for victims of domestic violence, current psychiatric RN, as well as being a recovering victim of Narcissistic abuse.

My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.

Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.

It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.

  1. Hi everyone.

    I am currently 3 months separated from my husband who I strongly believe has very strong narcissistic traits. I am recovering although slowly and still want him back at this stage. I have no idea why as the marriage was very toxic towards the end. I’m still in shock and traumatised by how we ended our marriage and feel it is all my fault.

    Anyway what I would like to know is can a person with a disability be more prone to being a narcissist?

    My husband is Deaf. He therefore throughout his childhood struggled for approval from not only his family but also his culture. He is Lithuanian and they don’t view disabilities with the same equality that we do here in England. His mother wanted him to learn to speak so was sent to a mainstream hearing school where he was forced to “fix” his voice and learn to speak.

    He is very clever and can articulate in Lithuanian and English although it is a struggle to understand what he is saying because of the deaf tone to his voice. He has always said English was, and is easier for him to speak and understand because Lithuanian is such a complex language to speak and understand with so many variants in tone.

    Lithuanian culture so I have found are also a very oppressive culture. Showing emotions seems to be viewed as weakness and he is therefore very controlled and almost robot like at times. He always looked at me like I was mad as soon as I show any emotion, like being upset or angry.

    Anyway could having this lesser than perfect (being deaf) make him create a false self? He also grew up with a very abusive father who repeatedly got drunk and beat his mother. This must of been very scary to watch considering he is deaf and what he sees visually makes all the more impression in a silent world.

    Do you think having a disability and being raised in Lithuania and watching what he did growing up could be all the ingredients to create a narcissist? Do they try and compensate what they themselves know they are lacking? Most deaf people do have a tendency to be jealous of hearing people as we hear what they miss. It breads a unique sense of culture (deaf- culture) where they feel they have been oppressed by hearing people treating them like they are stupid.

    Whats your views on this please? Many thanks

  2. Hello Dana,

    Two short questions after just finding your site (a few yrs. late..):

    1. HOW do I post Questions to your Q&A YouTube live-stream – before & during the stream?
    2. Do I use the SAME “Login” for that as well as for the support-site on http://www.thriveafterabuse.com?

    I am a man from Europe and I am thankfully a few years on the path to recovery. My second language is English from living in U.S.

    After my last relationship with a borderline/covert narc. I have “healed” fairly well the last 3 years, or so I thought.
    However, in hindsight looking back on my life I have discovered a pattern of having cluster B’s in my life unfortunately stemming all the way back to childhood. So, I still have new issues popping up as “ghosts” from the past just as I thought I was leaving the last devastating and abusive “Soulmate-relationship” behind me…

    I am sending you Positive Energy from across the pond!
