one thing I find toxic in my relationship is how my live in girlfriend spends hours on her phone texting with people but if I text to say Im leaving work do you need anything from store or something, I wont get a response even after I get home she doesn’t even mention it and it shows on my phone she never read the message at all. I have discussed it with her many times that it makes me feel like I am way at the bottom of her priority list but it only changes for a short time then its back to that habit again. Even when we are at home at night she lays in bed texting friends or her daughter or whomever else and is fairly oblivious that im even there. ( keep in mind we are a middle age couple not a young naïve couple new to dating and relationships by any means)

My brother is very sick. I have done everything humanly possible for him and my 85 yr old mother whom he lives with. I was unable to take him to his ongology appt. 2 days ago,due to my being ill that day, and he cussed me, told me he could not depend on me, and then hung up on me. He is now back in the hospital and i called to see how he is feeling, and he was again rude and hung up on me. It hurt me so badly. He is rude to my mom and myself and i simply cannot take it anymore. I realize he is sick, but NOW he is mad for something i had no control over. This is a guy that went for 12 yrs without speaking to our dad. I want out of the never ending cycle, but i know i will feel guilty for not helping when needed.

Dear Karen, I enjoy yours: how to teach kids about the brain! but I was expecting for you to talk about the neuron etc. I am not sure what´s the age range you are considering? Say those 4-6 years olds?
I will send you an article how children represent what is inside their heads! My question: how to talk about the structure & function of the brain to kids?
I am an Associate Professor of Neurophysiology & Educational Neuroscience at the University of Paraná, Brazil

My toxic stress response has been re-activated at age 60, for my aged husband is trying to starve himself. I perceived that a friend blames me for my husband’s behavior. Tried to go to sleep with a racing pulse & rapid respiration.

This article helped me understand my guy but I already knew about much of his low self esteem. This article confirmed it. He didn’t live in the moment much, he stayed closed off, he felt he got lucky with me and after the first number of months, he began interjecting cruel comments and alleging they were just jokes. Then there was the flirting with other women and he said he was just being a nice guy. He also lied a lot. I left him and I am glad I did. His statement after we broke up was “I don’t feel good about myself right now.” The truth is that he hadn’t felt genuinely good about himself during the relationship and was always seeking new experiences and approval from others to validate himself. I’m not cruel but it’s not my responsibility to “fix” this type of guy; especially at the expense of my own well being.

I think that this is so important. My mum had depression and nobody sat me or my sister down and talked about it. My dad seemed to be as scared as us. The only person who talked about it was mum and she would want to tell us all the negative stuff she was feeling.
The idea of feeling responsible for mum’s illness resonates. I didn’t feel responsible for her illness but I did feel responsible for looking after her. I was about 10 years old at the start of it.

I don’t know how to forgive my husband for having a two 1/2 year on line relationship with an old girlfriend. Culminating in meeting her across the country and sleeping with her twice. We’d been married for 35 years and yes, had grown apart. But he was the one person I trusted most in this world and now that trust is shattered. I do believe it’s over but it doesn’t help. The thoughts and pictures go through my mind constantly. He has been honest and answered my questions. But I just can’t forgive him. How do I get past this and move forward? I sometimes feel that he’s staying because I take care of him and always have. Please help me..

Hello its Jeffrey I just wanted to ask you something like how do you tell someone that you have had enough of them and these people follow you around,they come around to the next door neighbours and pretend they are there for a reason .
These people actually stalk me where ever I go including overseas,i have tried to tell them on many occasions that I want nothing to do with them and one of them come around to try and listen to my conversations no matter where I go and then try to use this for there pleasure and to try and use this information for gossip and then try to use it against you.
it has got to the stage that I am thinking of calling the police because they break the law and don’t care what you say but still continue to do what they like.
do you have any information that will help out here please

To numb……I too had a narrasistic family member. My mother. I was an only child and got all the hurt directed to me alone. It sucked. Still hurts at 38 years old. But let that make you loving to others and strong against the aggressors. DO NOT take that out on your sister like u are done too and hurt. Band together in strength and loving behavior. Do not hurt her and become the traits that your brother has hurt u with or you are re creating the monster as yourself to her. She might not be so strong one day and carry out the actions that you held back with the suicidle thoughts . Sending love and healing your way .. I know the pain and hurt first hand. I will never get the love I craved and still do. Even Acceptence for being born But I will not let that make me nasty soul sucker like my narcissistic parent. Peace and love. Rose up and together with love and sister

This article helped confirm what I was feeling. My husband and I dated for 8 years straight, high school sweet hearts. I trusted him whole heartily. I found out on the 7th year, he was cheating on me since day 1. Even during my fathers illness and passing. There were so many red flags but I was blinded by love and I trusted him, no questions asked. He promised, he wouldnt cheat on me again and that he loved me.. we got engaged 1 MO later, said he couldnt lose me. 5MO later, got married (June 2018) Im on cloud 9 thinking, ok, he may have treated me bad all these years but hes changed so much.. Oct 2018, Im 7MO pregnant and find out he cheated again. I was so scared, barely married, 7MO pregnant, I stayed with him because I didnt know what to do and I love him so much even though he hurt me.. now almost a year later. Its a million times worse, he hasnt cheated and is changing but now I feel I am falling out of love with him each time I think about all the things he has done to me.. and let me tell you.. it was so many women.. on my birthday.. he would leave my house to go see them.. point is.. I cant let anyone step on me anymore, I dont deserve any of this. Life just sucks so much right now

Hi, I just wanted to thank you for this article. My dad has been emotionally and physically abusing me all my life. He forced me to go into the military; I am now out because I suffer from PTSD due to his treatment towards me. He’s cut me off now, I’m in college, and says that I need to come home because he is not paying for anything. He’s never told he loved me unless it was to manipulate me. For so long I felt as though I was being crucified to gain someone’s love and protection. Getting space and going to therapy helped me solidify that, that is not love but manipulation and control. I know that was a lot and there is so much more of this story that I am still trying to process. Anyway, again thank you for this.

Addiction can seem hopeless. If you can take the time to reassure your loved one that things will get better, you can have a huge impact on their life. Addiction is often painful and simply reminding them that things don’t have to remain bad can be helpful and motivating. Tell them there’s a better way to live if they will accept help.

I have suffered with depression for forty years. The one thing I hate to hear you did not mention – There is nothing wrong with you. If people would take the time to educate themselves maybe we could lose some of the stigma. People don’t understand the difference between the emotion of depression and the disease of depression. Just because it doesn’t show on the outside with a bandage or cast doesn’t make it hurt any less. And unless you have gone through it you can’t understand the worst pain ever reaching every corner of your being and soul.

My boyfriend is extrememly self concious and depressed. He doesn’t hurt me on purpose, nor does he seek affection from others in forms of cheating.

He just thinks that he is going to fuck up our relationship simply because he is being himself. He’s been extremely depressed these past couple of weeks and I’ve been trying to help him through it. He has a rough life at home (he is 18, I am 17). His parents don’t have insurance and he doesn’t qualify for state insurance so seeing a therapist would be extremely expensive, and him mum doesn’t want him to get a job. He doesn’t want me paying for him to go do something he sees as a waste of his time.

At this point I’m completely shattered that he is stuck in this position. It hurts to see him in constant distress. We truely want to be together for the rest of our lives but I’ve told him that we need to work on this. Any advice?

What can I say without writing a book. I’m having an episode of toxic stress now. Blood work fine. Everything psychology is fine, the problem are the commodity. I eat a lot, fatigue to the point I can’t cat h my breath, pustular psoriasis internal. All because of abusive verbal relationships. I have an appointment with psychiatry tomorrow. Amen I found out about this. I’ve also been on antibiotics 6 months straight. Ugh

I feel exactly the same way. My boyfriend and I are different in that he goes on nights out quite a lot, and he likes to drink and have fun with his work friends. EVERY time this happens, I have so many negative thoughts which consume my brain – he’s having so much fun with them, he’s probably talking to that much prettier girl, they stay out later and later and I literally can’t sleep until I hear him come back at 4/5am. I want to be a couple who trust each other but my whole body refuses to let me do this. When he gets back i can’t help but ask questions, almost like i’m waiting for him to slip up on some tiny thing and find out that I was right to suspect something. I know that this is unfair but i can‘t switch this negativity off.

I know he’d never intentionally hurt me but I guess i’m So terrified it might happen…I can tell all these thoughts are impacting our relationship and we’re trying to communicate more but I find that i’m ashamed of the things I think because they all suggest that I see him as a bad person. Which I don’t! It’s the anxiety which is making my brain think all these thoughts but i just don’t know how to convince myself that it’s not necessarily the truth.

I have felt so held back in life by my primary abusers, my mom and my cousin. But recently I realized that I am held back because I have made myself small and invisible because I do not want others to be jealous of me, threatened by me, don’t want to rock the boat. Has anyone on here healed from this type of thing? What perspectives, meditations, therapies, books helped?

Hi Robin, I have felt similar. I was treated badly and there was so much control form my mother and brothers and their beliefs were put on me. I have denied myself so much over the years. I have not even went on holidays for 10 years as my mother believed I can’t go because of the money situation I was in. It was always what my mum thinks about me what would she approve. Since cutting the ties with her and brothers, I went on holidays 3 times in a year. I treated myself to nice clothes, made better friendships( the friends who treated me badly/ignoring) fallen apart. I cleared my house of all clutter. I started to knowing myself better and I started allowing the joy entering my life. Now it’s what I WANT not what they want. Good luck Robin on your journey.

I should kick myself in the rear. I have such a big heart I attempted to make contact again with my narcissistic mom and I got DEAD AIR! I am done with the madness and I wish her well!

To everyone attempting to leave a narcissistic mother/father/brother/sister I wish you good luck. Recognising that you WERE abused it’s a first step. You CAN’T fix narcissistic person, does not matter how “big” your heart is, how loving you are. You need to break away and heal yourself, save yourself, save your children. How can you treat your children self-love and self-respect when you allow them watching you being abused. Stand up for yourself. You are worth it. Narcissistic person will consume you, will take the best out of you, and they don’t care. They don’t love you, even when they said they did. Cross that bridge over, don’t look back. Leaving an abuser behind its an act of self love, self respect. You deserve to be loved and respected. Since I walked away from my narcissistic mother so much have changed in my life- for better of course. I have realised, I loved too much. I was naive that she will see my worth and will change. Now I’m protecting myself- it is essential to love yourself the hardest you can to heal that broken pieces inside you. Because it’s your parent or sibling does not matter they can treat you badly, repeating to hurt you, abuse you. Does not matter what kind of abuse is this, mental, emotional or physical, they have no rights to do this to you. Wishing you all strong will and self-respect. Stay strong.

Most women nowadays are toxic altogether since they’re so very stuck up with a very bad attitude problem as well. Very risky now for many of us single men just to say good morning or hello to a woman that we would very much like to meet unfortunately.

That is unfortunate as there are many nice men out there (I married one of them), but I would not put this in the same category as being toxic. Some women really are nasty and stuck up (this I also know), but many just have a natural defense built up from past relationships or the negative reputation of men in general. So sometimes all you can do is continue to be nice…a gentleman…and demonstrate your intentions with patience and courtesy.
