I am exactly 1 year out of a 10 year relationship with a psychopath/narcissist. I left with nothing, literally, and have started over at the age of 53. I lost all my possessions, my family, my self esteem and confidence, money, my innocence, trust in my own instincts and my desire to even live.
I have been homeless, suicidal and was told by my ex N that I should kill myself because no man would want a phsycho, paranoid, bitch like me.
And I survived and maybe not thrived but certainly well on my way to recovery. I share my experiences and research in a blog I started in spring of 2011 and was quoted on this site so I came to check it out and thought I might have something to learn or add.
