I have one small tip, which might help people who are dealing with some people who might be on the higher end of the narcissistic spectrum. I had often felt like Adam Sandler’s character in Fifty First Dates. Every day it was like almost everything from previous discussions, activities etc had been forgotten.
I had loved the end of the film (Fifty First Dates) where each morning she has to play a video to update herself on everything that has happened in her life.
I had a digital photo frame which I had running all day and every day, to help him (and me too perhaps), remember previous happy times we had shared. I did not understand it at the time, but I think he found it soothing. I had noticed him looking for it sadly on the shelf once, after he had moved out and I had removed it.
Thinking about it now, I believe it may have become a source of narcissistic supply for him, whereby he could relive past glories. I also ponder whether it is possible that such simple replaying of their lives, might perhaps help keep such people connected with themselves.
As with all things this is just a theory on my part.
