Support

Despite how you may feel, you are not alone! There are so many moms, including myself, who completely understand what you are going through.

Education

The first step in dealing with your situation is to understand exactly what you are going through. From there, you can make the changes in your life to ensure that your situation is more manageable.

Healing

Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome is a real thing and it is possible to heal from it even when the narcissist is still present in your life. It takes some work but it can be done!

Tell me if this sounds familiar:

  • Your ex is nothing but argumentative when it comes to parenting your child.
  • You oftentimes give in to their demands to avoid a fight or conflict.
  • They make you feel like the worst parent in the world – and sometimes you believe them.
  • Your ex turns everything you do and say against you.
  • They try to turn your child against you.

Did I hit the nail on the head? That’s because I have been through this.

And more.

My Story

When I became pregnant, I knew I was in an unhealthy relationship – I just didn’t know what to call it. I was unhappy, frustrated, and confused.

I left my ex early in the pregnancy, knowing that I could not – and would not – raise my child in a toxic environment. I realized then that nothing was going to change and I had to leave.

Leaving wasn’t easy and for a long time, I endured constant abuse and harassment from my ex – during the pregnancy as well as during the first years of my daughter’s life.

I didn’t know how to handle the situation. Arguing and defending myself would either end in a blowout or police involvement. I was a ta total loss.

Then I picked up on the term “narcissism” and everything changed. Now that I knew what I was dealing with, I could change my strategies.

From there I figured out how to control my responses, create boundaries, and parent with him in a way that was far less stressful.

Is my situation perfect? Of course not! But it is better  – which is more than I ever thought I could have hoped for in the beginning.

Back when this blog was focused on general information for moms, I started writing about narcissism. The response I received was overwhelming!

Moms everywhere were dealing with the same thing and looking for information and support.
When I started emailing and messaging with these moms, I realized that it was time to focus on this issue and share my knowledge and experience.

My Mission

My goal is to provide support to moms who are trying to raise children with narcissists. From articles to courses to coaching and even a book, I want to ensure that any mom looking for guidance can find it here at Motherhood+Mayhem!

Surprisingly, I do have a life apart from being a parent…

I am a freelance writer, blogger, and life coach.

My favorite substance is coffee. Bean juice make me wake up.

When I do have some time to myself, I enjoy true crime documentaries, off-beat fiction, and playing games on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

I recently got my first tattoo despite my intense fear of pain. I am now hooked and anxiously await to be further inked.

I live with my daughter and three cats of whom we refer to as “the boys”.
