I had to talk to my youngest son’s teacher this morning, about my son leaving school early today, for an appointment with a child psychologist. I decided to explain why and that his father is narcissistic. I didn’t know how that would be received, but I needed his teacher to understand how my son is being affected.
I am SO glad I did, because she totally understood and explained her ex – the father of her daughter – is also a narcissist and she has been through hell due to him over the last 6 years. She even had to have 6 months off work, due to him making her so ill emotionally, mentally and physically. She totally understood why I am currently physically unwell and the emotional and psychological toll and impact on all the family.
She said yesterday – Fathers Day – was awful for her and her daughter was upset and it was not a good time. I explained yesterday was not good for us either.
She totally understood everything I have been going through and the effect on my children. She said she has noticed my son zoning out a bit and she also said that he is such an intelligent boy, that he would no doubt be a straight A grade student, if it weren’t for these issues at home. And I appreciated her honesty and being so understanding of how his father is affecting him.
She said she has been in counselling for years and so has her daughter and that I am doing the right thing taking my son to a psychologist.
She also said if I ever wanted to talk about any of what I am going through, to talk to her.
I am SO thankful for this happening today and to feel like someone understands and that person is in my child’s life too.
I really need support and understanding people, and hopefully the child psychologist will be a good support for my son and for me, I have counselling and it’s also good knowing I have support from my sons teacher.
I feel a little less alone today and I am thankful I had the guts to talk to my sons teacher and that it turned out to be exactly what I needed to do.
It is always such a comfort to know other people understand and whilst I would never want anyone to go through this, I am so thankful to those who have reaching out to talk to others and help others.
Today, I am truly so thankful for my sons teacher.
