Hi everyone. I haven't been on our site for awhile because I've been busy getting out of my 30+ year marriage to my narc. Should have done this years ago! For any of you that hold back because it's more comfortable to stay because of finances or some sense of security please know that none of that will truly matter when you are finally able to breathe again. I'm alone with my 3 fur babies. I have a couple of friends that I can reach by phone but nobody to go out with. I make sure I chat to people when I go shopping and talk to my dogs all day long. A little crazy but it works. My narc has gone back to England and I feel relieved...not sad. Now his family can dance to his tune! Without the supportive folks on here and some outside council I don't know that I would have managed my escape. Some people have said that it took guts to do this at 68 but you know what.....it didn't feel brave just necessary. Years of working and making a pretty good salary and thanks to my narc I'm living in my kid's cottage and all my worldly goods in a storage locker. But you know what? I wouldn't go back for anything. Good things will happen if you think good things. I really believe that!

By sharing your story you truly are encouraging others to be brave...myself specifically. I've been in a relationship with a narc for the past 3 years and while I've attempted several times to go no contact, (with the longest being a month), I haven't gotten to the point where I can stick with it. Your words help me believe there is some light at the end of this tunnel.

@depth30. whatever you do don't let that 3 turn into 35 like me. It gets worse every year not easier. Their grip gets tighter and you'll get weaker. I can't tell you how much happier I am now and even better I feel free. Best feeling in the world. No more heavy heart. Think hard about your situation. It took me years of planning to get out. Good luck and lots of love to you!
