I believe my husband is a narcissist based upon his patterns

Customer Question

I believe my husband is a narcissist based upon his patterns of behavior the last 20 years. He has never been officially diagnosed as such but I am feeling very, very uncertain of my ability to live with him anymore. I feel as though he is slowly destroying me. I would like some support...thank you!

Hi Bill,


I am so sorry for the delay! My 3 small children stopped in and I needed to help them gather some things before heading out for the day with their grandmother. Thank you so much for responding. Should I take time to read what you previously posted before we move on? Again, so sorry! :(
