The Narcissist in Your Life Podcast is hosted by Linda Martinez-Lewi, Ph.D., clinical expert on the narcissistic personality, psychotherapist and author. I offer in-depth analysis, strategies and practices for those psychologically and emotionally harmed and abused by toxic, predatory narcissistic personalities through my books: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist and Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life, international telephone consultations and global podcasts. I put the emphasis on helping individuals to access the calming, restorative parts of the parasympathetic body/mind systems that lead to healing, recovery, personal transformation and the evolution of your true, authentic self and your unique creative gifts.

There are exasperating choices women women have to make: stay married to a husband/partner who is psychologically fused with his narcissistic mother or make the decision or make the decision to end the marriage because you can no longer tolerate the severe narcissistic abuse projected on to you.

This woman is not going to change. She is the vaunted Matriarch of the family. She runs everyone:: her husband, children, sibligs and any one else tht crossees her path. Her son your partner/spouse) loves and hates his mother but he is psychologically locked in to her. He has never been able to separate himself from her clutches. 

Not long after the marriage his narcissistic mother revealed herself in full ubly vengefulness. She gossiped about you to all the relatives, made up secrets about you and your family, telling all who would listen that you came from people who were dishonest and low class, who may have comitted crimes. This vicious gossip and flat out lies was very convincing to her coteries of family followers. They believed her. 

You recognized that your spouse was in fact intimidated like a yung boy, even a baby, about hurting his mother's feelings who could turn the tears on and off like a well oiled tap. What an actress--She needed to take to the stage--a method actor. 

There are many life stories of women subjected to this level of narcissistic abuse that recognize that their spouses/partners are so fused with their mothers that this gordian knot cannot be untied. 

Many women have taken the pathways of freeing themselves from this triangular fusion. This is a difficult and complex process but you have won your personal freedom, and all of your options are open for your restoration, transformation and the full use of your many creative gifts.
