    I was reading the discussion titled 'confused' and noticed more than the original poster having the same or similar issues that it appeared to me to be related to NPD in their partner. So I thought I would post some helpful resources to help them distinguish if that is the case for them, and offers help in leaving or getting out from under this abuse.!/kimcoo!/pages/Kim-and-Steve-Cooper-of-Fightbusters-and-The-Love-Safety-Net/118928306447

    Hey darlyn, thank you for posting these resources. I (and I'm sure many others) greatly appreciate it!

    Hey MCK! Glad to hear from you. How are you doing?
    MissCaptainKirk replied to darlyn05's response:
    Pretty good. Just chuggin along on the railroad track that is my life. My husband and I are seriously considering moving to a different state, which is amazing because I've always wanted to live somewhere else.

    I'm still changing every day, and I think about y'all often. On the tough days I still go back to some of your guys' advice which I wrote down.

    I would certainly say I'm less emotional about the disappointing areas of my marriage and am able to work on them bit by bit. I take it all one day at a time. If my husband is treating me badly or saying mean things, which is getting rarer, it's not able to affect me very much and I can turn it into a learning experience for the both of us or at the very least for myself.
    I finally have accepted that I have developed an eating disorder and I shared it with a friend of mine who's helping me with it. I've learned to take all my emotions and put them into art and creative writing. I may freak people out with my creations but I'm glad I'm able to get back to those things.
    My stress level is so much lower and I haven't had to go to a doctor in quite some time. Yay!

    I feel like I've aged at least twenty years, haha, but I try to look at it as getting a head start on my 40s.

    How are you? How's life and stuff?
