Now Available in Hardcover – The Adventures of Dan and Tina
Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is often underestimated and misunderstood as arrogance or simple self-absorption – because of how it’s depicted in TV shows and movies. But the real condition – and its consequences – are much more insidious.
Histrionic, borderline or narcissistic, the fallout from a relationship with a cluster B personality disordered person is often tragically similar. Smart, good-natured men and women can fall prey to this kind of narcissistic abuse.
Victims of narcissistic abuse experience depression, anxiety, shame, guilt, and more severe conditions that directly affect their physical and mental wellbeing. Knowing how to detect the actual signs of NPD and understanding the patterns of behavior can help if you suspect a loved one may have it.
The Adventures of Dan and Tina is a riveting story of living through narcissistic abuse and surviving the aftermath. Charming, smart, and attractive – it wasn’t hard to fall for someone like Tina. And that’s exactly what Dan did. In the beginning, things were great. But behind the fading veneer of a passionate, new relationship, it became increasingly clear that something was very wrong: Tina was a narcissist and Dan, codependent.
The Adventures of Dan and Tina is the intense story of one man’s painful journey through a relationship with a partner with a Cluster B personality disorder. Through Dan’s eyes, we see first-hand what narcissistic abuse looks like. A tale of strength as much as struggle, it also tackles in a very practical manner, how to find the power to leave, recover, and move forward.
The story is equal parts memoir and self-help book. Author Dan McGrath uses his personal experiences to weave true to life events, insights, and strategic advice into a powerful and raw tale about mental health and recovery.
