LOOKING FOR HELP WITH ANXIETY, STRESS, OR UNHAPPINESS?

PERHAPS YOU

  • have panic attacks if you drive too far from home, and want to quit your job every day

  • have a baby and are terrified to leave her at day care, and cry every day at work

  • feel unhappy in your marriage, but terrified about what life would be like on your own

  • were raised by a narcissistic parent (or one you suspect was narcissistic) and feel overwhelmed and alone with the problem

MAYBE YOUR CHILD

MAYBE YOUR TEEN

  • can’t fall asleep at night unless she sleeps with you, so you don’t sleep

  • takes 2 hours to complete homework that should take 30 minutes, and you wish every day was school vacation

  • clings to you every morning before school, petrified you won’t show up for pick-up, and you are late for work

  • Has a meltdown every evening when it's time to get ready for bed

  • doesn’t talk to you, breaks down in tears, screams, tells you nothing is wrong, and hasn’t gone to school for 2 weeks

  • has not seen a friend on a weekend for months, and feels too shy to call anyone

  • after applying to college, only gets into his “safety school” and feels like a complete failure

  • just doesn’t feel good about herself, in spite of being a top student and athlete

IF YOU ARE AN ADULT WITH A NARCISSISTIC PARENT, YOU MAY

  • struggle to set limits with your parent, caught between a sense of loyalty and the need to take care of yourself or your own family

  • wonder if you are “crazy” because of how interactions with your parent make you feel

  • may feel terrible or even ashamed when others tell you they are looking forward to spending time with their parents

  • find you can’t stop hearing your parent’s critical voice, even if he or she has been dead for many years

  • mostly, you feel alone, and that is almost impossible that anyone else could understand your story
