Realizing I grew up amongst psychopaths
« on: June 24, 2021, 01:10:52 AM »
Therapy made me realize I grew up amongst psychopaths. My parents are psychopaths and their parents are also.

I hope to make new friends through this forum because I feel people on this forum understand the struggles of living amongst Cluster B personality disordered family members.

I had to estrange myself from my family because I felt like I entered a psych ward when I talk to them. These people don't live in reality. It's impossible to maintain a healthy relationship so I cut off contact.

Hi snigi800 and welcome,

I'm glad you found us and yes, you are not alone. Many of us here come from narcissistic and otherwise dysfunctional family systems and it can feel very isolating.
Please check out the guidelines, the toolbox, and the boards below.
Understand that we are all on different phases of different journeys and are here to support eachother.

Looking forward to hearing more of your story.
