PS Are you bullied? I have to say how astounded I’ve been at the reactions to my series of blogs about emotional abusers on my website ’back to you’ blog. If you missed it, here are all the links – the first one has had nearly 3900 views now. Do forward them to someone who needs it, or who you think might need it – it’s amazing how a bit of knowledge and sharing makes someone feel not alone. It’s more common than you might think, and the one thing victims report is that ‘noone would believe me if I told them what he/she is like.’ Often they even are made to rewrite their own memories of their experiences afterwards, so it’s vital to let them into a world of info that might help. Final blog coming soon.

Keep in touch with me, email me your story - especially if you too had your 'aha' moment, and broke free - it really can be done in most circumstances, especially with a pure narcissist. This email address is being protected from spambots.
