Children of Narcissists
PLEASE HELP US IF YOU CAN!
I had a friend suggest this so I’m doing it because we’re DESPERATE!
My son and I are being evicted thanks to a crappy roommate not paying his rent or share of the bills and I’m trying to get the heck out of Tampa and back home to Seattle. I lost my job in late October and Jason didn’t work for 2 weeks in November and then again for two weeks in December due to the holidays so we just fell into that “one month away from homelessness” category that many Americans are in. Well, we’re here and facing homelessness.
I’ve set up a GoFundMe page so if those of you who have found this site helpful could maybe consider helping us I would be incredibly grateful! This information was freely given and will always remain so. However, we’re really stuck so I’m just reaching out to anyone remotely connected to our world (even the kindness of strangers) who would consider helping us not end up homeless!
Thank you for reading this post. I have no pride left, only desperation…things turned bad so quickly my head is spinning and I’m walking in circles so if you can help, PLEASE do! Also, if you could pray and/or put us on any prayer chains or lists you know, that would be awesome too.

Update December 2015: I had a post here before written by someone else. In re-reading it I took it down because I didn’t like just the first few paragraphs (and the link went to a site that was gone.) If you wanted that post, I’m sorry because it’s now history!
In the last several years I’ve come to believe that most children of extreme narcissists suffer in many ways that society (and sometimes the children) don’t know how (or want) to address.
I suspect Narc parents produce children with Borderline Personality Disorder.
I suspect a lot of children of narcissists are co-dependent.
Children of narcs often become narcissists themselves (but most of them will not land on this site.) I think more often they feel like victims and crazy as a loon (those are the ones who are digging around this blog.)
I will post more from other viewpoints and try to find some expert viewpoints (like something I read the other day about the victims of narcissists syndrome that seems to be gaining more attention.) I “think” it somewhat new in the psych circles. Not sure though, didn’t dig deeply.
