Annie & The Manipulative Deaf Narcissist Redux – Domestic Violence, Narcissist Abuse, Emotional Abuse

Play episode

Annie fell head over heels in love with a ‘regular’ guy. But this man was anything but regular. Very quickly, Annie became subservient to his needs, as her ex-partner masterfully used competition, his hearing impairment, and triangulation as his main tactics to manipulate her.

It’s a story of weaponizing disabilities, being chosen, guilt, obligation, sowing the seeds of doubt, minimization, justification, shame, expectations, blame shifting, gaslighting, control, sexual abuse, trauma, dehumanization, and much more.

***Trigger Warning – We mention Sexual Abuse in this episode***
