    Relationship issues

    Oh No

    Always had a crappy marriage. Married to a narcissist husband for 18 years. When I was diagnoised...he couldn't handle that it wasn't all about him anymore. He didn't care to help me and filed for divorce. God has taken me through this journey. Now my divorce is almost final and hopefully I can have some kind of peace:)
