To cut long story short, i'm a 51yr old recent widow who's just discovered that i've been raised by a narcassistic mother. Adding to that the shocking discovery of my late husband having an affair with my half sister and that my two adult daughters also having narcassistic traits along with using drugs.
This finally makes sense of the fact that I've lived with anxiety my entire life and my needy and dependent nature who people find very easy to take advantage of.
I joined this post to connect to other people with similar experiences and to fill the void of needing to belong and have a sense of purpose.

You were raised by a narcissist, and raised two more? How does this even happen?

I am tending to agree with Jodi. With the exception of the affair, how could you not be aware ?

Please consider counseling. It will help

I'm a bit curious how this has just become "all of a sudden" these people in your life are to blame for your unhappiness. Are you currently in counselling and this has been part of the discovery process? How can you only just realise you have been raised by a narcissist and have narcissist children? How can you just discover they are using drugs? So much of this makes no sense. If you aren't actually in counselling, the I agree, you need to.

I suggest you get yourself into counseling to help you move on with your own life and not blame your past for what you are going through.
You can't change the past so you need to move forward.
