  1. This topic was so helpful and relatable. Dealing with an undiagnosed parent with NPD is very difficult, especially when they refuse to seek help. It’s awesome to hear someone’s story, so ypu know you’re not alone in the world. ❤

    1. Yes, when I told my Black friends my father’s diagnosis no one showed me any sympathy. It is also very common for narcissist to not think that there is anything wrong with them, except for they alienate most people in their lives and they struggle to make close connections with others. I appreciate you listening and No you are definitely not alone.
