Children with a narcissistic parent:

Children with a narcissistic parent:

Welcome to my Blog. I am the author of “Life with Ollie”, The story of an only child with a single Narcissistic mother.

I would love to hear from you if you have read my book or have any questions to ask me. I want to help anyone who is going through this hell. I have learned a lot in my 77 years and would be grateful to be able to help others.

My goal is to shine a light on this condition. If a child is physically abused it is easy to see and authorities are quick to save a child or children from this abuse. However, a child who is mentally abused often goes undetected. I was the one who doctors treated with drugs. As a small child I did not have the words to describe my condition and was afraid to tell anyone for fear of my Mother’s wrath. I have never seen anything on talk shows like Doctor Phil or Opra addressing this subject. I have written to both to investigate why doctor’s don’t see tell signs, and to expose this evil and make people more aware of this subject that seems taboo to talk about. Doctor Phil’s site said they no longer take ideas outside the US (I am Canadian). So if anyone in the US thinks that this might be a subject to be addressed please get in touch with his people. Opera’s group said it would be taken under advisement, that was 10 months ago. I would love your suggestions on how to go about bringing attention to this cruel treatment.

I thank you for reading this blog and am anxiously awaiting you feed back.

“A soul that carries empathy is a soul that has survived enormous pain.”

Carlos Medina,
“The Minds Journal”

It is not my intention to write another self-help book on the interactions between a narcissist and an empath. Instead, I want to take you on a journey with me to explore the world of an empath’s private life. The things that an abused child can’t find the words to express. Being completely controlled by one’s parent, and the frustration of trying to extricate oneself from that parent’s grip. Being tossed out of the frying pan and into the fire. As a middle-aged woman, still being controlled and almost breaking. As an old woman, finally being able to heal. This is my story and I want to share it with you.

I do this with the hope that younger people will learn early in life how to protect themselves from toxic and predatory people. I was in my fifties before I was shown that there are people out there who derive pleasure from destroying others.
