A Covert Narcissist's Wife
Twenty years ago I was a woman who enjoyed life, laughed often and was looking forward to the future. A lot can change in twenty years, even who you are. I married a covert Narcissist and he killed me. I disappeared. I will never be seen again. I am technically alive, breathing, walking, doing household chores and take care of my teenage son, but I'm not really living. I have become an expert at fooling those who see me in a public setting. The truth is I am dead inside. My covert Narcissistic husband and his family worked as a team to destroy me, make me disappear from their lives, and why? Because I stood up for myself and our son. Because I spoke the truth about what happened to us. For that reason alone I needed to be destroyed.
