A TikToker has caused a stir after posting a video of her ex-husband complaining about his discomfort at the hospital while she’s in labor and in pain.
As a warning to other women with “narcissistic” partners, Mariah Lee released two clips showing an example of her ex’s “selfish” behavior, tagged with the hashtags #narcissisticpersonalitydisorder #narcissistsurvivor.
In the videos he moans about not having his own “real” bed, pillow and hunger.
At the beginning of the first video, Maria asks, “Because I need to prepare my body to push out a completely different person, what do you need to prepare for?”
As a warning to other women with “narcissistic” partners, Mariah Lee released two clips showing an example of her ex’s “selfish” behavior, tagged with the hashtags #narcissisticpersonalitydisorder #narcissistsurvivor. She shot the videos while she was in the hospital just before giving birth
Her partner replies with a grin on his face: “I need to be bothered, I need to be out of my area, I need to be away from my TV, the food I want to eat, I can’t be comfortable, the chair isn’t comfortable .’
He continues, unaware that Mariah is filming him: “It’s a dual process, you know?
“Once you have the baby, okay, well, that’s when you have the spotlight, but in the meantime it’s supposed to be give and take. I should feel good too!’
When Mariah tells her ex that she didn’t sleep well the night before and the bed isn’t comfortable, he tells her that at least she has a bed and a mattress.
‘They treat me like an animal!’ he exclaims.
In a follow-up video, Mariah’s ex describes it as not being an “ideal circumstance” and that if it were a hotel room with a bed and a minibar, things could be better.
At one point, the mom-to-be (pictured right) said she caught her ex texting another woman while she was trying to talk to him
Imagining his ideal scenario, he continues, “Maybe a blackjack table… a cocktail… maybe I could have a spa treatment, a sauna haircut, a manicure.”
Following his remarks, Mariah asks her then-partner why he is there, to which he replies, “I’m here to support you in this process.”
But she tells him that he doesn’t support her and when she asks him to rub her back because she’s in pain, he refuses.
The mom-to-be once said she caught him texting another woman while she was trying to talk to him.
Trauma Bonds Are Real! This man started the cycle when I was only 19 and really didn’t understand the signs or the cycle of abuse
To make matters worse, during the actual birth, her daughter’s umbilical cord wrapped around her neck and her husband started gagging to get the medical team’s attention.
Mariah wrote, “If my mom hadn’t been there to help me and reassure the doctor that he was fine, I don’t know what would have happened.”
To date, her videos have been viewed more than 1.2 million times, with many viewers slamming her ex for his behavior.
Annie Magnan commented: As an L&D (labor and maternity) nurse, I have words for him. I have previously turned down unsupportive partners. Thank God I haven’t had to do that for a long time.”
While Ember Dawn said Mariah’s story struck a chord, writing, “A whole child in a grown-up body. It is sad. Mine was mad that he had to drive me to the hospital at 1am and yelled at me while driving to obstetric appointments.
Mariah says she has since filed for divorce and the paperwork is pending.
The mother of two shared her experience of narcissistic behavior as a warning to others
Mariah thanks her kids for giving her a reason to ‘wake up every day’
In a warning to others, the mental health advocate concluded: “Trauma attachments are real! This man started the cycle when I was only 19 and really didn’t understand the signs or the cycle of abuse.
“Not until a domestic violence attorney enlightened me on how wrong the things he was doing were. She read a notebook I kept and asked how I was able to wake up each day. My answer: 1. My children 2. What other choice did I have?
“She was amazing and helped me get away from him. It’s hard to relive, but sharing is important.
“This video was actually a pretty nice exchange about his abuse spectrum. I know there are more women out there who have that gut instinct, but he always wins with the trauma bond.
“I want to show that these things fit together. When your gut tells you something is wrong, trust it. I thought I owed my girls a two-parent household because I never got one. The truth is that a happy home is the best option for a parent! For all my other survivors out there, you can do it too!’
