Hello Jo Ann, I found your website a couple of days ago and am so glad I found it.I just found out about my husband’s secret earlier this week.I confronted him right away on the phone and he was hysterical and apologized and begged me to stay.Long story short, we never sought therapy for it and I forgave him because I didn’t think he had any kind of addiction – I had never even heard of a sex addict. A year ago, I was visiting the US for 2 weeks and came back and was on the computer when I saw the history of web pages, I saw that he was on a pornography website.I just happened to be on the computer in the home that he owns in the US (he was back living in his home country at this point – I was to join him in 6 months.
One of the hallmark symptoms of a narcissist is her inability to perceive others as people with needs of their own.
A narcissist mother may come off as a loving, caring parent because she will have an exclusive and possessively close relationship with her children in order to control and manipulate them.
Although most parents watch with pride as their child begins to learn independence, a narcissistic parent feels every step away from her is an absolute act of betrayal.
She often snubs or scorns her children’s attempts for affection.
A narcissistic mother does not have children for the same reasons a healthy person would.
I found out about it 3 years ago, and now the Sex Addiction has reared it’s ugly head. About 2 years ago, I moved to his home country with him and now we are married, no kids, a house and 2 great jobs. I would say that I am attractive, smart and successful myself.
