    What was it like growing up with 2 narcissists parents?

    I for one will tell you 1st hand that it sucks! A lot of my followers know that I have bpd, due to mentioning it very often in my post. My dad was all about bragging on what he spent on someone else to get them out of a financial jam and bring it up continuously to make you feel inferior, and my mom wanted to elevate herself above everyone, competing to her kids to the point of invalidating them, yep this was my life growing up. So, for those that have a longer life span on you meaning you've lived a bit longer, well when Wal-Mart was transitioning for a retail store to food and retail now called the supercenter my mom took a frozen chicken and hit me over the head with it and started laughing. this was a joke to her, and I was in a bit of pain... Shocked more than anything because she did it so everyone could see it that was shopping in the store. My mom would make us cry by hitting us or manipulating us then tell us to shut up as if she didn't cause us to cry. My mom played more mind games than you could imagine in the run of a week. #narcissistic #Bipolar #mentaldisorder #BPD

    Did your parents ever force you to wear shoes that didn't fit as a child - teenage years?

    My Narc mom was mean and cheap. My father would give us money every year for shoes for school and my mom would steal the money from us by not putting the money all on our shoes but split the amount in half and buy us some cheap shoes that would last about 6 months. So, I got hip to that I would tell her I didn't want any shoes and start crying and then when dad would come home, I would tell him where I wanted to go to get shoes and he would take me to the store and I never wore Nikes or reeboks until I was 16 years old all the other shoes, I wore were generic. The best shoes I got from them were PONY sneakers and I would be so happy like I had Jodan's or Airmax or something equivalent. But when I got my own job at a restaurant at age 16, I bought my own shoes. #BPD #narcissistic #OCD #Autism

    Do Narcissistic Women and Borderline Men Attract each other?

    People with Borderline Personality and Narcissistic Personality Disorders can find one another attractive and may actually forge more stable relationships with one another, at times, than they can with people without personality disorders. #BPD #narcissistic #MentalHealth #MentalIllness

    Does my spouse really know who I am?

    A person can be married 20+ years to the most supportive spouse in the world. Sounds like a dream, even though they are available for them around the clock, but the spouse knows about his partners mental illness but to what degree it can escalate they have yet to find out one day.#BPD #ADHD #Bipolar #narcissistic #Autism

    Thought of the Day Thursday December 8th

    Every time I look in the mirror, I see someone that is sad, depressed, lonely and totally empty. This is not the same person I saw when I was much younger, that person was happy and full of life and ready to conquer any task thrown his or her way. Being bullied continuously by someone from your childhood can really have a negative impact on your adult life.#Depression #BPD #ADHD #narcissistic #narcissistic
