    Donalda & The Entitled Abusive Narcissist | Domestic Violence, Narcissistic Abuse

    Donalda & The Entitled Abusive Narcissist | Domestic Violence, Narcissistic Abuse

    In this episode of Narcissist Apocalypse, Donalda shares her story of abuse at the hands of her entitled husband. What started with red flags, such as telling Donalda to stop talking to her online friend and Donalda doing the lion's share of the housework, slowly morphed into picking fights, arguing, and full-on rages. As things escalated, Donalda was then accused of cheating, as her husband denied paternity of their child. To help work through these abuses, Donalda and her husband went to couples counseling, only for it to backfire and empower her abusive husband even more. 
    It's a story of entitlement, rage, weaponizing therapy, animal abuse, physical abuse, sexual coercion, child sexual abuse, gender roles, religious beliefs, post separation abuse, intimidation, threats, accusations, and the loss of identity.
    *** CONTENT WARNING - This episode discusses animal abuse, physical abuse, sexual coercion, & child sexual abuse. ***

Supportive inclusive podcast

This podcast is a lifeline for folks. I have listened to so many stories, and it’s such a supportive and reflective place. Brandon’s care comes through so much. I think anyone who has any abuse, violence, narcissistic people in their lives in any way, or are looking to educate themselves would be very lucky to listen here. Cannot recommend enough ❤️
