Hi, I’m Stephanie, and I’m not your average evil stepmom.
So who am I? I am in my mid-30s, living in the South, and I work in a hospital. I have never wanted to have children. I’d consider myself to be “child-free by choice.” I love my husband, who was just my boyfriend when I started this blog, and his children very much. Step-parenting has been challenging, heartbreaking, and incredibly rewarding and I am glad that I have the opportunity to do it. Especially because Sebastian’s children do not have a stable, healthy female mother figure in their lives.
This blog is anonymous to protect us all, even his ex-wife although she does not deserve protection. All names have been changed and some identifying characteristics have been as well. My intention when starting this blog was to have a place to vent. I had no idea what was wrong with his ex-wife, aside from her being “bat-shit crazy” and one of the most horrible people I’ve ever encountered. Once I figured out what was wrong with her and several years had passed, I realized I needed a place to talk about what is still and will forever be going on in our lives. I hope that this will provide needed support for those of you who have someone with NPD in your lives and you have no choice but to deal with them to some extent.
