No worries my friend, I hope you can work through it all. You're right about the shock when the penny drops on what is actually afoot. I almost threw up when I first read about NPD, it was like the person's entire psych profile had been uploaded and had been there for all to see the whole time.Thank you for your thoughts. Affected by immediate family & a relationship / friendship. Like you i wasn't aware of what i was around, although i always knew something wasn't right.
It's quite an overwhelming shock to realise. I'm presently having counselling, trying to come to terms. It's harder if it's immediate family, because they're your flesh & blood....i do realise they're victims, too.
Don't want to derail the thread, but felt i had to say it, because there may be viewers of this film, not knowing they are victims of N.P.D.
Wish I could offer some better advice, all I can say is look after no.1 first and foremost. I can appreciate to a certain extent they can be victims especially if there are sycophants and grifters feeding their illness but from my experience it's of their own making, they play the victim card well and unlikely they'll ever truly accept there's an issue or want to change even if they do.
