    After DD and reflection over the last decade or so of my relationship with my husband I’m having trouble determining if he is a PA with intimacy anorexia or if he’s a narcissist possibly with PA— or is just labelling his behavior as PA.

    He’s lied relentlessly on a few key items and only relinquished proof when he realized I had evidence. Looking back, he has a ton of narcissistic qualities. Lack of empathy. Entitlement. “My needs are most important so I don’t care about your needs.” Tons of misdirection, gaslighting, lies. He’s incredibly guarded, neglectful of me, super concerned about how people view him yet deeply insecure. He appears to be a nice person who will go out of his way to help pretty much everyone but he has been very critical, unhelpful and emotionally abusive to me.

    From what I read, narcissists can’t be “cured”. So... I’m now wondering if I should adjust expectations regarding PA recovery.

    Any advice, ideas, or similar experiences on this matter?

    After I read your other post. He sounds like a narc too. Mine is. All the manipulation, triangulation projection and gaslighting. Porn and masturbation just made it worse. Of course who knew mine preferred to jack off for 20 yes. Ughh the mess in my mind.
