I am a very happy drunk and she loved the attention she got from others as they watched us dance on the floor. All we did was drink. Here is a sample on setting firm personal boundaries. I know that I will take time to heal so maybe my life can just begin at 41! I am glad to not see or be a part of this. I think he has some sick, pathetic attachment to the place. I feel for you so much.
It is fun for recreational use once in a while but really I use it for medical purposes. I feel completely broken and a little dead inside, not only for the loss of the love I thought I had, but for the loss of the love I will never have. I did not marry him, but he recently broke up with me after 4 years. I find sometimes alcohol can influence my to be particularly nasty depending on the circumstances so, at times, I choose not to partake if it could mean things will get uglier than I want them to. Something that struck me during those group classes was that as each woman told her story, it was as if we were all talking about the same man. He was meant to be around at 3pm.
Still drinks and talks stupid. My ex had the sleep issue and impulse control stuff. He had to sell his home and was a lousy homeowner who was an embarrassment to his neighbors. I went on with my life but seems he was always there making trouble or just being around so we eventually played house again for a couple of years, during that time I joined in his drinking so it really didnt bother me the way he was. A few weeks ago I felt strong enough to respond, for the first time in over a year, until i realised she was still stuck. Was I so crippled that I could barely function? Blames it all on her.
I left for a year when our daughter was only 1 year old. We had to have the best of everything in the house, but since we parted ways: he got locked up, we lost the house we were renting because of him. I have no control over this depression and heartbreak. But she cannot own my soul. That kiss took my breath away. Eventually the ability and energy to get out of bed every day and feed the insatiable need to offset the inner demons runs out.
With good friends around me, I clawed my way back. I filed for divorce one other time and got sucked back in. He even admitet to not actually feeling emapthy and guilt only shame. Cunt, bitch, whore etc can be owned by women because that is us who it referenced. When a narcissist is unable to get the kind of response he expects, the low self-esteem can encourage addictions like drugs and alcohol. I know ill get over it but bloody hell its going to be hard.
My ex got married on our anniversary and sent me a picture. Kick him to the curb and save the rest of your life because he has no problem wasting it away. He always admited his visits to prostitutes, affairs, money scheeming, abuse etc. We are the same age, both in mid thirties. If Dave actually loved this daughter then he would stay away.

Call it what we will- Intellectual disability, neurological retardation-that facts are there- Narcs would fall under the syndromatic I. I did more in the last 4 yrs career and goal oriented wise that I never dreamt possible. I want to protect her all the time from anything negative he may say to her. The disconnect only on the right hand side.
And their self care can be so mixed up with the kinds of fear, guilt and pain that we discussed in our previous two blogs on codependency that they really can't figure out how to take care of themselves and still be well-related and aware of the needs of others. After all, the emotional abuse that occurs in a relationship with a Narcissist is merciless and relentless. He was an alcholic till age 40, then he quit cold turkey. I needed to hear the message in this article after my sister, who also attempted no contact for a bit, mentioned that my mom is doing great and is super happy. He left me only with my 2 suitcases and couple bags. This is what almost makes me give up on the idea of love.
