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 Dana,

    I posted a question to you about a boy in my school whom seems to have traits of narcissism.
    I showed the head teacher you response and he was very happy and asked me if possible could you please give more detail’s on what to do.

    The reason we think he has narcissism a) he will tell an outright lie to anyone; his Parents, teachers and friend in order to get out of a consequence. B) He will convince himself that the lie is actually what happened. c) He continuously bully’s other vulnerable boys. D) He has no empathy for his family or others.

    I’m looking foreword hearing your opinion.
    Many thank for your incite.

    Regards

  2. Hi Rabbi,

    I think your best bet is to speak to the parents, and see if a child psychologist is in order, and see if they (the parents and the child psychologist) can help develop a treatment/behavior plan for this child while he is in school. Outside of that, I would encourage your teachers to make him accountable for all his behavior–and to let them know that this child tend to lie and manipulate to get his way, so that they can watch for those behaviors. If his behaviors are severe enough, he may not be appropriate for a school setting–a child psychologist should be able to determine this and give you some guidance with how to proceed.

  3. I have been in on a 22 year roller coaster. He was diagnosed as a sex addict over 10 years ago(heavy porn use). I had gone to the therapist for myself and was told I was grieving and they could give me meds to help but really needed him in there. I declined meds and told my husband the marriage could not continue unless we got help so he went. He went for a year and all this seemed to do was give him a buddy, a costly buddy at that. His therapist did tell me that he would never progress past a 14 year old mentality. At the time I was in denial and thought how could that be. Things have escalated so much over the years and now see that the sex addiction was not the only problem. My question to you is. Could the therapist have missed that he was a narcissist? He fits all the criteria but I also fit some of it. I am so confused. We had a big blow up over his bad behavior on New Years Eve and told him I was not living this way anymore. He will not leave and I am not leaving the only home my son knows. He sleeps in separate room and ignores me as much as possible. He goes out every weekend and offers no explanation as to where he is. I am a mess and I have no Idea where to turn. He says he just doesn’t give a shit anymore. I know I have been discarded and devalued. My question is I feel as though his narcissism has rubbed off on me and now I too am one. Is this possible.

  4. I was with a 46 year old never married woman that loved and treated her dog better than me. She did not like kids. She told me she was a control freak from the beginning but I looked passed it. She pinched me when I made her angry, I had bruises on my arms and legs. Sex was ok but I never heard of a this personality disorder. I became a doormat over 2 1/2 years. Bought all kinds of trip and gifts to try to make her Happy. I was nice because I thought she was going through menopause. It’s taken me 5 months to love myself again and understand this type of evil person. She dumped me like all her past men and was seeing someone else before she did. It was a great lesson. Your videos are extremely helpful. Thank you Dana.
