Dr Banschick - While I appreciate your article as it clearly describes my mother to a T, I was waiting eagerly to see if you would give examples of "how to actually LIVE with a narcissistic mother". My dad passed away a few years ago and guess who Mom decided to live with? Not her favorite daughter, but the one where she felt safest and knew her needs would be taken care of.
Now as a grandmother myself, I deal with her crap everyday! Some days I am able to hear her sick rants about everyone, including her own children, but some days I think my mouth just opens as an instant reflex to something shocking she says Oh and don't forget to leave a carefully worded notice with the matron because your dear mother will no doubt lie and claim u abused her Your last line is so true.
My mother 86 now told me I hit her, when in fact she used me - a child at the time - as her human shield against my father's blows. She used to say my younger brother did it and I spent hours calling all over trying to get her help from elder abuse. Now I see that was lies too. He smartly distanced himself long ago and now has a life, unlike me.
All of my sacrifices for her, everything I did for her over decades - to the exclusion of getting my own life - she now twisted into ugly lies that are the opposite of reality. And the horrible thing is, she is sweet to others just not me and my younger brother so people believe her. Devastating to me, so young people run fast and far away while you have a chance. Jazzy, please keep in mind that I know where you're coming from. I've been there, and although I've not spoken to my cunt of a mother since , and have not seen that cunt since , she's still there in my head.
However, my wonderful husband has gradually, gradually helped me to experience peace, and this has only been possible because I cut ties with that cunt of a mother. Unfortunately, if you hope to find peace, and you are not the Buddha, there is no way to "to actually LIVE with a narcissistic mother". Narcissists are empty, and there is no filling them up. However, they can take and take and take, until you become a husk of a person, and they won't even notice.
Be honest with yourself. You are not a saint, so there's no point in trying to be one. Just cut your ties to the cunt, and kick her out. If you would prefer to feel guilty, go right ahead. If you feel you need to be the 'ideal daughter', go right ahead. She takes no responsibility for her foul treatment of you. Why should you feel responsible for her care? Take responsibility for your life and your decisions. Or, continue to take her shit and then whine and bitch about it online.
Even if you chose to deny it, it's your responsibility. Very likely, your mother's greatest fear is abandonment. Very likely, she has manipulated you all your life, at your expense, to save herself from being alone. She doesn't give a shit about you.
She only cares about protecting herself. Until you realize that, she will suck you dry, damaging everything around you. And all that damage will be your responsibility as well. Tell her off, once and for all. Then, cut her off. That's all there is to it. You have a mate here. It takes a lot of energy to call ones mother cunt. I think it is the epitome of a bad mother. Sometimes even calling them cunts does not seem to exorcise the demons they send out. Myself I did not even attend my mothers funeral.
I have struggled in vain to get a worse word to describe her. She was worse than a cunt. I am glad that bitch died. The best thing is to have very limited contact with them or none. They are a sick lot. Have other family and friends who are these self centered ego maniacs. It's all about them, only them and everything them. Their fake persona charms everyone around them and they love the attention. No more from me, not even when I am charmed. Thank you for the advice. I just finished beating myself after narc mother contact. I can't do it anymore. Once, I read about a man who, shortly after his release from serving a lengthy prison sentence, murdered his mother and kicked her decapitated head across the street.
This was somewhere close to New York City.
He then walked in front of an incoming train, killing himself. I actually contemplated murdering my pretend-sweet, abusive tyrant of a mother. However, it would be hard to prolong her death long enough to satisfy me. I could not torture her enough to make up for the harm she did. It took some thought, but the worst thing the child of such a parent can do is to abandon them in their old age: That's how you do it: It will be a long-term struggle but, slowly but surely, as I have, you WILL feel better and enjoy moments of peace with increased frequency.
I am searching the Internet to find out how I can help my 15 year old daughter navigate through the problems of dealing with a NPD mother with whom I share custody. Everything seems to written for adults. Thank goodness we have figured it out at this stage in my daughter's development. I just wish there were more online resources for teens I tried speaking up to my mother the last few years after a lifetime of narcissistic abuse I'm in my 50's, she's in her 80's.
She didn't like that, turned very abusive towards me - accusing me of the opposite of what I did for her as I was the "caretaker" child for her and her human shield against my father's abuse. Now after all the years I gave her my money and time so that I have no life of my own, she's dumped me when I tried to set boundaries and cut me out of her will when I could really use whatever I'd get, while my selfish siblings she adores and who did nothing for her, wealthy siblings to boot with multimillions.
How do I deal with the devastation I feel? It's got me suicidal. While I cannot truly give advice since I don't know you, I can say that in situations like this a consultation with a mental heatth professional is called for. A narcissistic mother can cause a lot of pain. But, often there are co-morbid factors like depression and etc. If your comment was meant for me, thank you for acknowledging my pain - that's a lot in my world! You are correct about the co-morbid factors such as suicidal depression but I can't afford professional help. What I can afford is typically either for the severely mentally ill homeless so the therapists think my problems are nothing or well-meaning places with very inexperienced often student therapists.
Do you know anyone anywhere maybe they'd do Skype e.

My Narcissistic mother had to go. It's been agonizing, wrenching and extremely challenging but her toxicity was never going to change, never. I've read since that NPD tends to get worse with age not decrease so I guess things weren't going to improve. Going no contact generates guilt as I'm cutting her off from her grandchildren but I feel it's the only solution. I have a very supportive wife and I can't imagine exposing my own children to even 1 day of the abuse I suffered throughout my childhood and adolescence.
I might never recover fully from the abuse I suffered but every moment of happiness I can now enjoy is one step further away from the horror of my childhood, and I know my own children are safe and loved. There is a lot of societal pressure on children to revere their mothers and to look after them to an extent, especially into old age.
My view is that if you endured a horror childhood at the hands of sadistic narcissist the you owe them nothing. One does, however, owe oneself and ones family the chance at a happy and loving life. This can never be achieved in the presence of toxic monsters. I walked away in , Andrew, the day my father's killer was convicted of murder. The repression, abuse, and narcissism had only grown worse after my father died, and was already out of control for years. For the last time, Mom publically chastised me for things she did not understand.
Additional reasons are legion and mark nearly every moment I remember in her home. Very sad but necessary so, hopefully, my wife and kids can have peace in their lives. I don't know if I've had enough therapy to cope.

Me getting help as an adult is what really pushed her behavior over the edge and had her come at me harder. My failings were always my absent father's fault. She kept him away and interfered with our relationship so far, he gave up and waited for me to "get it. He called me on his death bed after not speaking for 8 years.
