Stella & The Crazy Making Abuser – Narcissist Apocalypse, Domestic Violence, Narcissistic Abuse

Play episode

Stella met her charismatic partner through her sister. And even though Stella had some inner alarm bells ringing to run as things were moving quite quickly, her friends and family vouched for him. Everyone said go when they should have said slow down. As soon as Stella moved in, the abuse and coercive control began. Stella’s partner tried to make her feel crazy, and it worked. Stella thought she was the problem and felt trapped with no one to talk to.

It’s a story of smear campaigns, infidelity, rage, crazy making, coercive control, physical abuse, financial abuse, addiction, love bombing, isolation, psychological abuse, gaslighting, codependency, emotional abuse, instilling fear, inner child work, and much more.

*** CONTENT WARNING – This episode discusses physical abuse. ***
