Here are some resources that I have found helpful with information on Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and recovering from narcissistic abuse. I hope that you find them helpful too. Please remember that you are not alone, hundreds of thousands of people (if not more!) have a family member or loved one who has NPD. Abuse is not your fault. Narcissists do not love you because they are not capable of love NOT because there is something wrong with you or because you are not loveable, no matter what they imply or tell you outright! Whatever a narcissist feels when they say “I love you” it is not love as you or I experience it.
