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.

Being married to a narcissistic personality can be a source of extreme oxidative stress that can activate a dysregulation,  HPA Axis Disorder. 

The adrenals together with the hypothalamus and pituitary glands help us to balance our responses to stress.

They dysregulation of the HPA Axis caused by chronic stress over time disrupts and overloads the endocrine and neurological functions. 

Those who grew up with narcissistic parents or have experienced extreme trauma and deprivation are more inclined to accumulate oxidative stress. 

Each day you are suffering under the cruel yokd of the narcissistic spouse. These individuals wear you out; they are constantly projecting their rage on to ou. 

These marriages appear to work for a time. High level narcissists are very clever and charming and entice and trick you into staying with them. They make empty promises they have no intention of fulfilling. Each time the narcissist reverts back to his true selfish, controlling, manipulative nature. 

This is a time of truth when you are determined to pursue the gifts and boons of your authentic self. You move forward along your pathways of evolution, transformation and creativity.
