A milder form of covert narcissism?

    My wife is nice and behaves normally 99% of the time unless I do one of the following:

  • try to contact parents, family or friends
  • ,

  • use the internet outside of work purposes
  • ,

  • have any kind of social media presence
  • ,

  • read or watch science fiction or fantasy
  • .

    So, as long as I have ‘harmless’ hobbies, no friends or internet access, she is not abusive towards me. I suspect covert narcissism, but strangely am not motivated to leave. I did leave once after she hit me, apparently by accident, but no longer feel that I am in physical danger. She denies hitting me, saying that I am delusional and paranoid, and often blames me for things. I have gone “grey rock” whenever she tries to gaslight me.
