there is something very addictive about the rollercoaster of the sociopath, the adrenaline rush you sometimes get while trying to survive them, the constant state of heightened alert.its very hard to come down from, even though you aren’t always sure its happening.They were supposed to move out together a couple months ago, but when the day came he disappeared, then a couple weeks later she found out she was pregnant by him then they were in contact again.
” I’ve sent many, many people the link to that article. Isn’t there I understand that people become deeply bonded to sociopaths, especially when they are emotionally and physically intimate, and more especially when they are pregnant.
i thought the same things about my involvement with an alcoholic.
i had to hold an intervention for a dear friend with a drinking problem, as i feared for their life.
i think what gave me the most strength was my family, hearing the hurt in their voices when they tried to console me after whatever awful thing the spath said or did.
and i think that after i realized what was going on, having the support of my friends was very important too.
