New to the group...Feeling a little bit desperate for some emotional relief. Being in a relationship with a narc is unbearable at times. My stuck point is accepting that it was fake. I can’t seem to grasp that he didn’t care at all.

@TreborH Yes, withdrawal, it's crazy how we become sedated to effect these neurochemical have on us.

Getting to that point does take time, which is so frustrating when you just want to feel better. You will get there though. For me, it took 3 things: 1) NO CONTACT. That is essential, otherwise you'll stay under the spell. 2) Research. Otherwise,you can't understand the disorder. Narcs don't think or feel like we do. It takes a while to wrap your mind around that. 3) Self-compassion while you heal by taking good care of yourself and focusing on your own life. One day, it will all come together and you'll see things very clearly. In the meantime, it is so hard and uncomfortable, but you will get through this.
