    Apparently my story is all too common. I was married to a covert narcissist for 50 years and now I have to learn how to be free. How do I find ‘survivor’ groups in Sydney… where are they?

    Hi Robbie33,

    Welcome, and thank you for joining us.

    I had a look online and there were a few things that popped up - one is a Facebook page for a support group in Sydney, another is a Meet Up group. Perhaps these two could be worth a try?

    Hi, welcome

    Rt has a good suggestion there.

    You are a survivor and I hope you find peace. I think after such a long period of time you might also consider a psychologist. Your GP might be a good start.

    Hi Robbie 33
    Thankyou for sharing
    im so sorry to hear what you went through but also glad to hear that you are free.
    This will be a hard time for you and definitely a journey I would recommend practising mindfulness to help
