I've been in a relationship with a narcissist for ten years. I originally met my narcissist as a young widow. I'd lost a spouse to brain cancer at thirty. I have a thirteen year old son who is my pride and joy. Recently, we built a new home with the narcissist and I'm starting to greatly regret the decision. I've made the decision to hang on for five more years, until my son graduates, and then leave for good. No one should have to endure narcissistic abuse. I pray I make it.
