What It FEELS Like to Live This Way

Incredible description of covert narcissism. This is exactly what it feels like to be one.
I can’t even express how glad I am that now I know. Things have already shifted and my whole perspective is changing. I’m so glad I “came out” about it too. Doing so was TERRIFYING!

From Narcissism to Nirvana

There is a wonderful NPD research paper available at: http://ps.psychiatryonline.org/data/Journals/AJP/3874/08aj1473.PDF

It is my personal opinion that this is the most scientifically accurate description of NPD and its subtypes.

My NPD falls under the ‘fragile’ category.

According to their Q-factor analysis, the following traits are typical of the fragile narcissist experience. In order to add the actual viewpoint of a fragile narc, I am including the ranked list of traits and how they manifest in my life.

Please note that it is difficult for me to separate my current sense of awareness from my history. I may use past and present text in some places, but my general intent here is to describe what my life has felt like for the past 35 years.

  1. I wonder if my ex’s anxiety was actually due to his narcissism, it would be very interesting. I also realize my ex threw tantrums but he did them differently. His were crying, saying I am self centered, and I also wonder if one of my former online friends had it too. He also threw a tantrum and would call me names like arrogant and he was very clingy and he would say things like “You think I am boring” and get offline. He also never took no for an answer and kept pressuring me to be his AB mommy and he felt so entitled and he was very selfish and kept insisting I think he is even though I never said he was. I realize now he was selfish and also very manipulative and creepy. I blocked the SOB.
