The Voice for Victims of Narcissistic Abuse

The Voice for Victims of Narcissistic Abuse

“You are not alone. You are not crazy. You can heal from this.”

Welcome! While this website URL features my name, this is really a place for you. It’s a safe place where victims of narcissistic abuse can find information to help cope with their existing or former circumstances.

As someone who has suffered decades of narcissistic abuse, I know that we often feel like our circumstances are unique; that no one else is going through what we are going through, and no one would believe us if we told them the truth. I also know that it’s not always safe or financially feasible to leave a narcissistic spouse or partner, so there is no judgment here. Just support, community and information. I hope my story will help others feel less alone, more understood, and ultimately hopeful that there is a way out.

Dana’s Book

Forced out of an unhappy home at a young age, Dana S. Diaz swears to make it on her own and never fall victim to the same abuse she witnessed growing up. But that’s before she falls for Darren. It doesn’t take long, however, for Dana to meet the darker version of Darren—a narcissist who seeks to control Dana in every way. Despite her best efforts, she is caught in the cycle of trauma once again. But how can she free herself from Darren’s stranglehold?

In Gasping for Air, Dana invites readers along on her odyssey of healing and empowerment as she breaks free from the grasp of her 25-year-long abusive relationship. She fearlessly delves into old wounds to reveal the truth behind a lifetime of lies and stitches them closed as a new and resilient woman.

An inspiring true story filled with strife and revelation, Gasping for Air exposes the raw truth of emotional, psychological and physical trauma, and is a bold testament of survival.

What is a Narcissist?

On a very basic level, a narcissist is someone who believes they are superior to others in some way. Some think they know everything. Some think they are extraordinarily good-looking. Some think they are simply the best and the most and that they are just “it.”

The Generational Curse

My grandma always said our family was cursed in relationships, because so many of us ended up in marriages where we were mistreated. I can’t say she’s right because I have an aunt and uncle and some cousins and a brother who are all blessed with having chosen correctly.

The Voice Inside of Me

As far back as I can remember into my early childhood, I observed how people treated me and each other, and perceived the differences in intent and consistency. For example, my great-grandma, who took care of me, was very loving and nurturing.
