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.

Those who are married or partnered with high level narcissists are constantly under extreme stress. Many individuals report about demanding, demeaning, manipulative individuals that cause a variety of symptoms and illnesses: chronic unrelenting fatigue, extreme insomnia, high level anxiety, extreme hypervigilance.

As the months go by the high level becomes impatient and even enraged with your state of exhaustion. They project their rage on to you when you are at your most vulnerable state. They feel victorious when you cry. That's how sadistic high level narcissists are. 

You are gaslighted, accused of being psychologically unbalanced, disruptive to your evolution as an individual with unique creative gifts and entitled to deep inner peace. Your partner and spouse despises you and finds you weak and incompetent.

The opposite is the truth. You are a persevering courageous individual of fine character. 

Here are a few activities that will be very helpful to you:

Learn how to rest; you are entitled. Rest is healing and restorative.

Stretching and doing yoga poses moves your lymph and increases your energy and strength.

Hydration and nutrition keep you healthy with great vitality.

Listen to beautiful music that puts you into the flow of the parasympathetic mode of relaxation, restoration. It soothes you and sparks the golden keys to the imagination.
