Testimonials

Wade, I just want to say thank you. I too have a narcissistic mother and I heard “what’s wrong with you” daily growing up. I struggle with all the same mental illness as you. I was encouraged by your story as I struggle with guilt for not being in my mother’s life but she’s not emotionally or mentally safe for me. I feel better after hearing you say we have to take care of our own mental health. Thank you.

Email Comment

Wade, I can’t thank-you enough, your testimony and message saved my son’s life.
