Hi! My name is Vanessa Reiser. I am a survivor of narcissistic abuse. The trauma caused by this insidious form of domestic violence is so hard to understand so I aim to bring awareness by running the State of New York in a wedding dress May 17-May 29, 2021; from Oswego to Manhattan. Please donate and spread the word.
Narcissism is a popular buzzword that is used incorrectly depicting people taking selfies or behaving selfishly. Narcissistic people engage in a WAY more serious form of chronic manipulation and devaluation of their victims, leaving victims feeling worthless, confused, inadequate, depressed, anxious and even suicidal. This type of continual manipulation, which includes an idealization-devaluation-discard abuse cycle where they “lovebomb” their victims, devalue them, then discard them until the trauma begins again, is known as narcissistic abuse.
We are hell-bent on bringing awareness to this insidious form of domestic violence. We want to change the dialogue around what mental abuse means and highlight the trauma that follows.
This is the first run across the state of New York in a wedding dress by Vanessa, but she has partnered with @Bridesmarch to bring awareness for domestic violence.
