    I’ve been married for 40 years. Currently in the middle of a divorce finally. I thought I was going crazy until my therapist explained I was suffering from narcissist abuse and diagnosed with stockholm syndrome. It took me three years to fully understand and educate myself of what actually happened to me, accept it which was the hardest and now the process of divorce. It’s so hard because the abuse.(not physical anymore) The emotional, mental, financial and psychological abuse is off the charts.

    • 40 years is a long time! It will certainly take awhile to undo the damage. Please remember that you are stronger than you think! Take things one step at a time.
