Phases of Abuse by High-Conflict Women

New post on http://www.shrink4men.com. It is a diagram and article written by an anonymous client of Dr Tara J. Palmatier that details the pattern of abuse perpetrated by the client’s wife who meets many of the criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder and also appears to be a high-conflict person.

Here’s the link:

    Just read the link of HCP phases.

    I’ve spent the last 2 years reflecting and trying to understand how my marriage lasted 6 months, On a daily basis I’ve examined and re-examined where I went wrong, how I could have done better but still utterly bewildered how a wonderful life crumbled so quickly. I’d never heard of the term HCP female before but the flow chart is so accurate and insightful it could have been written specifically about my ex.

    I now have the start of a sense of closure. That I’m not the devil reincarnated that she is so outwardly convinced that I am, and tried to tell me and everyone else who will listen.

    That she’s always been like this and ‘not the person who I turned her into’.

    That the ‘trigger’ that I pulled would have been innocuous to a normal person but was instantly toxic to her and warranted ‘WW3’

    That even though I loved her deeply, I was right to decline her lame attempt to reconcile because I would have spent the rest of my life with her in the ‘cloud’.

    This has been a life changing read – thank you so much.
