... just need my StepTalk peeps to come march me past the denial (my inner 5 year old still coming up with butterflies & rainbows hopium wishes that this was all a bad nightmare...) and into concrete action toward Freedom from Toxic B.S.
This morning I’ve been reading about Narcissistic Personality Disorder from a narcissist’s point of view on Quora. Interesting stuff.
I’m pretty sure BM has NPD based on her actions, opinions of people who have known her for decades, and oh yeah, that little golden psyche report which came back “inconclusive” during the divorce.
It finally happened. Anyone who has read my previous entries knows that things have not been good at home for a long time. SS17 has clearly been very unhappy for years, and cannot get along with others in this house. After the episode last week, where SS17 became physically aggressive toward DD14, I had more than enough. I've had enough of this stuff for a very long time, and tolerated way more than I should have. Luckily no one was injured last week, but I knew serious changes had to be made.
Rant here about SS17,
Yesterday there was less than a 2hr gap between when his mother SO left for work, and I arrived home from work. That was too long for SS17 and DD14. SS17 decided he wanted coffee from our Keurig. We don't allow kids to drink coffee, especially a kid with hyperactivity issues (SS17 for clarity). We have resorted to tracking the count of our kcups with a sharpie on the kcup boxes so we know when some "go missing".
