Dr. Todd Grande describes Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder as outlined in the DSM 5, is characterized by

– a preoccupation with unlimited success, feeling too special to    be understood by regular people,
– needing excessive admiration,
– a sense of entitlement,
– being interpersonally exploitative,
– having a lack of empathy,
– being envious and others and believe others are envious of        them,
– and being arrogant.

Divorce of any kind is far from pleasant. Divorcing someone with NPD is in a separate league of it’s own and can be full of unexpected surprises and unpleasant turmoil.

One last quote from the above article posted on the xojane website:

“While our marriage was horrible, our divorce has been a nightmare that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.”

The following quote is from the Amazon.com page for Tina’s 1st book:

“Tina soon discovered that there is only one thing more difficult than being married to a narcissist and that is divorcing a narcissist.”
