Q: How can I deal with the fact I was used for 8 months by my narcissistic boyfriend? I too didn’t pay attention to the red flag alerts. I just loved this man. I got away from the relation ship due to ways too many fights and his very nasty remarks. But I feel so used and my heart is broken. I don’t want to do anything or go anywhere. Why did this have to happen? Please help me
A: You sound like you are experiencing symptoms of depression. Please see your physician for a referral for counseling or possible antidepressants (that is up to you and your doctor) and/or see a counselor. Your symptoms are common to victims of abuse and are common to those who are heartbroken. However, it is not so common to be dealing with the aftermath of a narcissist. He “hooked” you and that is harder to get over than a typical failed romance. Please spare no time in seeing a counselor to help you cope with your feelings and move on with your life. Hang in there! You WILL see better days.
