One important point which Wendy Behary makes (around the 35:45 minute mark) is to set limits and boundaries and she has suggestions on how to do that. One way is to limit your exposure to the Narcissist, by having limited to no contact with the Disordered Individual.
In a work environment, if you do limit the Narcissist’s access to you then watch for the Narcissist moving into Back Stabbing and Smear Campaign mode. When you stop providing Narcissistic Supply, a Narcissist could work to get you fired and or destroy your reputation.
Click on this Link to visit the http://psychotherapyjournal.org site with a post featuring another interview with Wendy Behary. Along with a video they have posted a written PDF transcript which you can download and read by clicking on their PDF link at the top of their screen Transcript. It gives one some insight how a 3rd party such as a Therapist might view a Narcissist’s behaviour. IMHO well worth downloading and reading their PDF Transcript.

It was heart breaking reading an email of what you are experiencing. I see this site as being like a database of the Red Flags and Tells to look for, hopefully before becoming entangled with a Narcissist. Once caught in a Narcissist’s Web, it becomes a very different story. Spending years with a Narcissist, takes things to an entirely higher level. Honestly, please seek out a Medical Professional to help you with the situation or problem which you are facing. Direct one on one help, provided by a knowledgeable Health Care Professional is the proper and best way to get help, treatment and support.
