Understanding Helps

Understanding the narcissist emotional age helps put some things into perspective.  A young child throwing a temper tantrum is irritating but something to be expected as a part of normal development.  A full-grown man behaving in an angry, irrational way is just frightening and dangerous.  I don’t know how to stop that but at least I know he is reacting in an abnormal way to life. I no longer blame myself for his reactions. I’ll keep getting better.  He will always be a narcissist.

Truth

The truth is I  let them stay much too long.  An undeserving person doesn’t know when to leave.  They get comfortable with what they have and expect it to always be there.  When the moment of truth arrives they are shocked and can’t believe you want them to leave. Much appreciation to those who leave quietly. For those who don’t, what a frightening journey that is…

Yes, Another Migraine.

I have them almost every day.  No, not every migraine keeps me in bed or causes me to worship the porcelain god. Yes, each migraine hurts much more than the usual aches and pains. Most difficult is how every migraine short circuits my brain.  Doing any sort of math in my head is out of the question.  Computer work is tedious and entirely frustrating. I must pay particular attention to my driving as my migraines are so distracting.  I could take a pill and it might work.  I could take a pill and it might not do anything.  I could take a pill, again today, that will cause another migraine tomorrow.  That one will be worse.
I’m tired.  No, I’m exhausted.  Yes, I have another migraine… 😦
