When dealing with personality disordered exes, it is critical to build a supportive network for yourself and your children. Secure a counselor who is experienced in trauma if possible, clearly communicate what is going on with your children’s school, and find a medical professional that can keep a watchful eye over the situation and any health effects from stress. Find a support group, such as a local church offering Divorce Care, where often duplicate programs are offered for the children involved. If you are dealing with any addiction you formed while living with a personality disordered spouse, seek out Celebrate Recovery programs in the area which can be an incredible asset providing you with confidential support.

Journaling works for some while finding a service related activity such as volunteering at the local hospital or food pantry is a good outlet for others. Above all, retain the perspective that moving away from someone with this level of disorder is a healthy and brave step and the legal matters necessary will not last forever and will be worth it in the end.
