See the woman in the picture? That looked like me for a very long time. There I was, distressed, ashamed and reclusive even, and getting worse every day. But it didn’t make sense; what was wrong with me? I wasn’t that old and my life should have been glamorous by any definition. I appeared to have everything any girl could ever want. So what was the problem?
The title of this post is admittedly rather shocking but it is an absolute truth: love partners of extreme narcissists invariably end up sick or dead, unless they’re also narcissistic or have some other mental or personality disorder.
The evidence stands for itself on this one. Extreme narcissists all leave a trail of human wreckage in their wake, including former partners who end up with mental illness, diseased or six feet under.
