Hello. I call myself Chase Townsend.I live in the eastern portion of the United States.
I’m sorry to be so vague and use a false name, but my relationships with many people–some who I value and some who I do not–will be negatively effected if I go public.
While I use a pseudonym, and may change small details and names to remain anonymous, everything else on this website is true. That is my promise to you.
I am the child of two narcissists. My childhood–like yours–was painful. That pain continued into adulthood. I’ve spent years dealing with my pain and admitting to myself the truth about my parents. Now I wish to help others deal with their pain.
I’m not a mental health professional. I write from the perspective of someone who has gone through a string of therapists who knew little, if nothing, about treating the adult child of a narcissist. So I want to share with you how I used the skills those therapists did have combined with my own efforts to lessen the painful consequences of being narcissism’s child.
I can’t promise what worked for me will work for you. We all have our unique paths to travel. But by reading these posts you will at a minimum know you are not alone in your suffering.
I invite you to have conversations with me and other readers in the comments. The only rule is no belittling anyone, their pain, their experiences or what they are doing to heal.
This website is a place where adult children of narcissism can come and share their pain and how they are healing.
If you have questions or have something private you want to share with me, you can use the contact form or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I welcome you and hope you come back often.
