Hi all, I have had "Vestibular Migraine" for the past 5 years (near on 24/7 symptoms though they vary). Obviously "tried everything". I originally started seeing a counsellor because I couldn't cope with it anymore, but about a month ago, I discovered that my mother has Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), which basically means she doesn't care about me. Not that she hates me - she just lacks the emotional empathy to care and has always used me to meet her own needs. Suddenly I could see where all my unhelpful and damaging adult patterns came from. It totally made sense. And the dates when I have been ill (I had a few things before) match up exactly with "episodes" from her. Knowing the mind-body connection, I am not utterly convinced that my illness is psychogenic/psychosomatic/TMS. I only times I'm not sick are when I'm abroad, and hence she has zero chance of contact with me - otherwise she texts me every night, not horrid stuff but a little child inside of me is is obviously still so terrified of her (I was as a kid) that it's unconsciously making me sick. I can not go "zero contact" which a lot of children of Narcissists do to stay well. My mother has damaged me a lot. I can not feel comfort or anything (I barely even know what that word means, as I was never shown it). Is it possible this program can help me - even with contact? From what I was reading of Alan's program, I am hopeful. I know this probably isn't your "usual case", with the NPD and stuff . Thanks for listening and any help.
