Hi, guys! Anyone else here who suffers from PTSD as a direct result of long-term narcissistic abuse by a spouse?

    Mine was mostly my "father" but I married an abuser as well.

      😥 I'm so sorry. Are you still with the abuser. I just got free in August 2021 from my husband of 16 years. I tried and tried for years, hoping things would change, but they NEVER did and he has no plans on changing, even now. I did what was best for my two daughters and I. Even now, he still terrorizes from afar, but I and the girls are still better off.

        somehow I figured it out early and divorced him after 3.5 years. However, had to put up with his abuse because of child support- sometimes pay, sometimes not. Being the manipulative narcissist that he is, he talked the judge into only paying $200/month. Try raising two special needs children, or any child, on that pittance. Tried to ask him for help financially and just got abuse in return.

      same here I married someone almost identical to my dad. I broke free from my toxic marriage in 2019 and it was the best thing I have ever done!

        it’s like adding insult to injury but it was all I knew I didn’t understand I was surrounded by toxic people until my ex imploded and I saw behind the “curtain”

  • KenziJade

    Yes. I would love to connect with more people who have so we can support and build each other up.

    My situation is a little messy.. I was beat for about 8 hours by my roommate, which resulted in alot of diagnoses I received 11 years later.. in the mean time I proceeded to have a child with a narcissistic addict. Kind of a double whammy. It's hard to say who's responsible for what but I know I constantly triggered by my child's father, from previous abuse, physical but then had to deal with the mental, emotional and verbal for 12 years. Things are better now, her father terminated his rights, he let the control go..idk why... I don't care. I just go day by day and will probky never be in another relationship again. I've been single since I left her dad in 2010

    • MrsB3922

      160d

      I'm glad you got FREE with most of you still intact. 🙏🏽

    Not a spouse but the people I used to live with. I'm reluctant to even say they raised me - my sib and I pretty much raised ourselves.

    • MrsB3922

      And I'm glad you're here to tell your story. ✊🏽💯

    Yes from both my parents and an ex-fiancé. Parents was obviously long-term. Ex-fiancé was about a year.

    Yes! Still have to deal with them as well since we had a kid together. Although hoping we can get his rights taken away soon. It effects my health each day. We’ve been divorced 4 years now but still have flashbacks that make it feel like yesterday. We were together 5 years, 3 of those married and met in high school.

    I suffer that same exact thing....but from my " mother" ..at 42 it's effecting me more severely in physical forms it's a tourture

    • MrsB3922

      I'm so sorry. I think I can understand. I deal with Fibromyalgia and PTSD, which is a direct result from the stress of narcissistic abuse.

  • shakie

    Yes I do. I was with and married to him for 6 years. We have two children so I get the abuse from a more distant standpoint. It's still there though. Wish I could get away from it😥
