I am a single mum of four girls. I’m going through a very heavy divorce at the moment. In actual fact it has taken 3 and a half years, four years in December. My children have sadly been dragged through so much in the last four years bless them. We have all had councilling for the past 2 years. The girls father has been abusive in all directions towards myself and my children. It has been a struggle to keep them safe but finally we are coming to an end. I have a three day trial court order in January 2019. This is all just to do with the children’s arrangements. I have the finances to deal with too yet. That will be another chapter. I have another court order in place in December. So four court hearings in total. Since October 2016 I have been to court about 5 times. My ex husband has been playing devious games with me through my children. It’s been an amazing struggle. Having to deal with a psychotic narcissist is not easy. I only have my freinds to rely on, freinds that are with their lovely hubbies. They have been so supportive. I have only just been opened out this year about my situation to my. It has helped a lot talking to them. But they don’t fully understand my situation. I don’t have family around at all. I’m completely on my own.
I suffer with anxieties and get very lonely.
It would be good to chat with other single parents just for support. Perhaps there are other parents that can empathise a similar situation?? If so it would be really lovely to hear from you.
Hope you are doing well! In my travels looking to find others in West Sussex, I came across your post and the narcissist aspect made me want to reach out to say hi. I was only recently able to label my wife as a narcissist (covert variety) in the last year or so and I finally was able to process what I had been subject to the last decade.. Not sure if you are the same, but I seem to have co-dependency issues with my narcissist, which has made her leaving all the worse… I say leaving.. but she still is in the house.. which makes things really hard. Anyway I thought you might find googling “Vital Mind Psychology narcissist” might be helpful.. a lovely Aussie Guy doing youtube videos that I have been finding most helpful. Your situation does sound a lot harder than mine though. I hope you are ok!
