I really like your e-book, it’s very helpful. I was wondering if you knew of any face to face ACoN meetings or support groups around the Boston, Ma area?

I have recently realised my mother and paternal grandmother have NPD and my father is an enabler for them both. My brother supports the discovery in full. We have both realised how this has damaged us over 40 plus years.

Hi , I have been flawed. I only have just realized that my mother is likely to be a narcissist. Im 54 , and have a degree in Transpersonal Art Therapy. I have done countless hours of personal development and know my patterns and core beliefs inside and out , have studied and taught the Enneagrame and yet no one has ever alerted me to this possibility! I’m astounded and feel quit raw and vulnarable. It is good.
I would love to work face to face with others in a support group if you know of one in the Northern part of NSW , Australia.
I would also , once on my feet , love to help others in this area using y skills with the enneagramme , intuiting and my art therapy.
I have a pattern who recently I have realised has Aspergers and I can really understand the similarity with both conditions , and the reason I have created this relationship in my life!
The penny ha dropped!
Could you send me any information you have on support in Australia?

BTW I am SO SO very grateful for you eBook and the other information I just signed up for. I feel like all my life I have been waiting for this key!
gratefully, Elizabeth

I read in one of your articles that it is not a good idea to burden your “children” with your issues regarding your nsrcissistic mother. I can understand not burdening young children who probably would not be able to comprehend how an apparently loving grandmother (from their perspective) could do and say some of the things their mother might describe or that in all likelihood they probably witnessed, but shouldn’t a mother (me) be able to have a sensible discussion with her adult children about their grandmother’s behavior when it is obviously mean and hurtful? Unless they don’t want to be bothered or would rather ignore the grandmothers behavior toward their mother, because if they acknowledge it they fear being punished by her ( ie. No more Christmas or birthday money, etc.) as adults, I would hope that they could provide some empathy and perhaps be part of a support system to their mother. Surely by virtue of their adulthood, I would hope they might be able to be objective, mature enough to have an intelligent discussion and therefore be able to offer understanding. Would this be asking too much or putting too much of a burden on my children, even though they are adults.

I just realized that my mother is a narcissistic and I’ve been extremely traumatized after I took assessment on your ebook. I’m trying to limit my interactions with my mom but as an Asian woman, we must take care of our mother. And Now my mom try to order me to get married so she can have a son-in-law to be proud of.

I’m the eldest of six kids. You can imagine the dynamics in terms of the roles. Our father was an alcoholic, and we cared for and made excuses for him too. I broke free No Contact almost two years ago when I finally realized the narcissistic abuser and her minions were targeting my children. It’s not an easy road.. most view it as a drastic measure due to lack of insight, including the majority of my siblings. Only two of us are free, outcasts from our large extended families, lost and lonely. This impacts our own immediate families in terms of loss as well. I recently agreed to make contact with my (“good”) siblings at the request of my father’s request (in hindsight- to hero! help! him). Big mistake. The first response I received was narcissistic blame and shame. Don’t fall for it!
