I am 67 years old and i still go backwards to my first abusive marriage. I still talk to my narcissist of an x husband , as I feel at times i have to help out with our son who is 46 and has wernicke korsakoff syndrome, he needs help at times, with day to day remembering.
i don't know why I allow myself to continue to be berated because I don't live in the same state. I could go on and on.I was so depressed I didn't want to be here a few days ago. but my kids save me, knowing the consequence.

Hi @karjack, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, an online community of patients supporting patients.

I'm relieved to hear that your kids give you a good reason to keep on. I'm also glad you reached out and posted to several places in the community. Keep in mind that community members are not trained crisis workers. If at any time you feel like you are in crisis, please call or text the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline https://988lifeline.org for immediate help. Your safety is the most important thing to us and needing to talk to a professional doesn’t show weakness, it shows strength!

I look forward to continuing to connect you with fellow members in the Depression & Anxiety group (https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/depression-anxiety/), where you will find others who listen and understand.
