Overcoming Narcissistic abuse by Elizabeth Shaw – Life Coach.
Being in a relationship with a narcissist, be it, a partner, a family member, boss or a colleague. Is a highly stressful and a hideous experience psychologically and physically. They are toxic and with their continued games leaving you uncertain of your own thoughts, from silent treatment, gaslighting, the love-bombing The discard, mental and possibly physical violence from some, is all extremely stressful on our minds and our body’s.
As humans, the worst stress we can experience is that with interpersonal relationships. It’s more stressful than physical stress, and the emotional, mental abuse is a lot harder to see and overcome than a broken bone, although if they’ve also been physically violent towards you, it leaves more scars for you to heal from within your own mind.
A long term relationship with a narcissist locks you into a path of confusion and loss of self. The narcissist is like a virus that infects every part of you, and they are a parasite that comes to feed off your willingness to help and support, stealing your money, your home, your self-love, self-worth, self-trust and your own reality, plus so much more.

Your body then release so many chemicals when in a relationship with a narcissist, causing trauma bond, anxiety, adrenal fatigue, but also your physical health, you might end up with many health complications.
You become so physically and psychologically out of touch, Brain frog confusion, lack of energy, slowly you lose touch of reality. Leaving you trapped and looking towards the narcissist for reality checks.
