WOW! I didn't expect this one but it came at the right time and correlated nicely with Chapter 7 of The Emotionally Absent Mother by Jasmin Lee Cori on neglect and abuse. Listen to what happened when a family member opened up her can of abuse with me. The video version on the YouTube version of Digging Through Dominoes should be up tomorrow with her scathing, self centered, remarks, that I took screen shots of, inserted. We don't want any miscommunication, as I've noticed as common in my mother's family. I'm grateful though. Her attitude showed me the complexity of the environment my mother had grown up in. This video does not diagnose anyone with any disorder, only points out similarities with Jasmin Lee Cori's book, The Emotionally Absent Mother. It made me see the situation my Mother grew up in differently and how she, and her sisters, in my opinion, were scarred. Healthy people just don't do this. affiliate links: COMPLEX PTSD From Surviving To Thriving by Pete Walkerhttps://amzn.to/3RCx7rN The Body Keeps The Score by Bessel van der Kolk:https://amzn.to/3TLagfv Overcoming Toxic Parenting by Rick Johnson:https://amzn.to/3wXlBPO Healing Your Emotional Self by Beverly Engel: https://amzn.to/3epY0RD  The Emotionally Absent Mother https://amzn.to/3KNfUtu DD Social media links Digging Through Dominoes website (audio): https://diggingthroughdominoes.podbean.com/  Apple Podcast: ttps://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/digging-through-dominoes/id1619200152?i=1000557547966  Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/69onD9bgg30EYvixz8DJFz?si=086dc9095e664d3b  iHeart https://www.iheart.com/podcast/338-digging-through-dominoes-95565843/  Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkLnBvZGJlYW4uY29tL2RpZ2dpbmd0aHJvdWdoZG9taW5vZXMvZmVlZC54bWw  Amazon Music/Audible: https://music.amazon.com/podcasts/ff3b62d1-4acb-4a3d-8bd8-89f5aba3ace6  Player FM: https://player.fm/series/digging-through-dominoes  You can use this RSS feed in other Podcast platforms: https://feed.podbean.com/diggingthroughdominoes/feed.xml  YouTube main Channel URL for Podcast playlist: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE4W_QJYGZH7d2wyB-0gDe5fAjI2cSi4J  Digging Through Dominoes Youtube Video Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4A3V8sW0X5c1QZGqQfBqXw  Digging Through Dominoes Social Media:  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DiggingThroughDominoes  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/diggingthroughdominoes/

A recent event shook me so much I wondered if a person can have too much therapy? A recent event shook me so much I wondered if a person can have too much therapy? After the events unfolded I was in a near panic attack, searching for answers and wishing for normal, whatever normal is.  I felt the emotion, the body memories, from decades past enveloping me.

It was a lazy morning as I scrolled through my YouTube feed. There were three videos that caught my attention. One was entitled, "Weird Things Only Narcissists Do," by Rebecca Zung. The next was, "When Narcissists Paint You As Unhinged," by Dr. Ramani. The last,  feel was a true gem. I thought about it all day. It was by Jordi Universe and entitled, "To You, A Year From Now." Jordi's message hit me hard and stayed with me throughout the day. It was compelling, beautifully done and asked the one question that leads to many more, "What if?" Here are links to the videos: Rebecca Zung: https://youtube.com/watch?v=VKfRME7omPY&feature=share&si=EMSIkaIECMiOmarE6JChQQ Dr. Ramani: https://youtube.com/watch?v=SZaRMnqBGyk&feature=share&si=EMSIkaIECMiOmarE6JChQQ Jordi Universe: https://youtube.com/watch?v=HWaZgAGMsc8&feature=share&si=EMSIkaIECMiOmarE6JChQQ   Below are the affiliate links to some of the books I've spoken of thus far in this podcast.

What began as an episode about scapegoating turned into the story of my encounter with an extremely toxic narcissist and the friend that quashed it all. These are the messages the narcissist sent my friend in the attempt to destroy me and was surprised when my friend told her she knew her game.
