This is a short essay regarding the biochemical bonds victims of narcissistic abuse develop with their abusers. Featured on the Self-Care Haven website, the extended version of the article is now available in Kindle format. Many survivors of narcissistic abuse are confounded by the addiction they feel to the narcissist, long after the abusive relationship took a toll on their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Make no mistake: recovery from an abusive relationship can be very similar to withdrawal from drug addiction due to the biochemical bonds we may develop with our toxic ex-partners. Learn how these bonds create an addiction that is difficult to break. All proceeds for this e-book go back into supportive services for survivors through Self-Care Haven.<br /><br />What mental health professionals are saying about this article:<br /><br />"Brilliant article on trauma bonds and recovering from narcissistic abuse." - Andrea Schneider, LCSW, MSW.<br /><br />"A must read! Perfect article to help you understand the biochemical changes in abuse." - Shannon Thomas, LCSW, Southlake Christian Counseling

<DIV>We've all had "aha!" moments in our lives, times when a sudden revelation surprises us with insight. According to pastor and bestselling author Kyle Idleman, we can experience this same kind of "aha!" in our spiritual lives. With everyday examples and trademark testimonies, Idleman draws on Scripture to reveal how three key elements can draw us closer to God and change our lives for good. <BR><BR><i>Awakening</i> to the reality of our true spiritual condition, we see ourselves and our need for a Savior with renewed <i>honesty</i>. This realization leads to <i>action</i>, obeying God's commands and following the example set by Christ. As we see in the transformation of the prodigal son, the result is a life-changing, destiny-altering collision—an <i>AHA</i> moment that leads us home to our loving Father.<BR>--<BR><DIV><b>Kyle Idleman</b> is the teaching pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, the fourth-largest church in America. Author of the award-winning and bestselling book <i>Not a Fan</i>, he regularly speaks at conferences and events around the world. He and his wife DesiRae have four children.</div><BR></div>

She has lived with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) since she was a young girl in the Great Depression. Her story chronicles her struggles before psychiatry became an accepted specialty and recounts her incessant battle with herself and a brain she believed was broken. With scant help in managing and treating her condition available, Jackie came up with an unorthodox method for coping she calls "The Five."<br /><br />From The Great Depression To The New Millennium, One Woman's Journey With Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
