In this episode Dr Erin will answer four questions from our community:

  • I am going to be getting a restraining order on my narcissistic ex. What are five things that I should know about narcissistic behavior to prepare myself for this?
  • When the narcissist blocks me, it triggers my fears of abandonment and I feel like I am going crazy. What are a few things that I can do to overcome this fear that I have?
  • I have been struggling to find a therapist who understands narcissistic abuse. What are some questions I can ask a therapist in the initial meeting to figure out if it is going to be a good fit for me?
  • I want to distance myself from my narcissistic mother but guilt and shame are holding me back. I was the “helper child” for most of my life so I feel responsible for her well-being but she is destroying my physical and mental health. How can I overcome these feelings and move forward in life?
