Me: Enjoying life
My XWH is an NPD too and the in-house definitely was horrible. One habit I was not able to break him of was his insistence on strolling around the house in his underwear! *shudder*
Hang in there and absolutely don't engage unless its essential regarding DS. Remember, his manipulation attempts require your participation in order to work. You know you won't win... so don't play. You wouldn't allow yourself to get emotionally wound up by a temporary (if aggravating!) roommate, and that's all he is now. (or least try to see him that way).
I know it's hard when freedom is so close but still seems so unaccessable. My dad gave me some good advice for the times when I was forced to interact with XWH. He said remember the goal of getting him OUT, and to choose all my words and actions accordingly. Grease the way, he said, don't throw up roadblocks, even when its tempting to do so. This advice helped me a lot.
Keep your eye on that prize, Daisy. You're almost there!
