On a tangent note, we were watching CNN yesterday and a commentator mentioned the ongoing gaslighting in the Whitehouse. My W asked what that meant so I explained it. Too bad she did not ask why I knew the answer. She does not appreciate my participation on this forum. 😆
The last couple months of marriage, I've learned that my whole marriage has been a huge gaslight. My husband is intelligent and loves to rub it in my face. Its hard.
Still admitting is kind of traumatising. But this time I have to keep it to myself because my relatives just don't see it. They think I should be lucky that he stays, considering 3 children with autism
Mine is a member of MENSA (or was, when he paid dues). Our teenaged son, who is in special ed and is also highly intelligent, said to him when he was really little, “Daddy, you’re smart, but you have no common sense!”
Despite this, and despite that I finished my 4-year degree and landerd my dream job right before our kid started school, he also loves to rib me about my seeming lack of intelligence - my IQ being about 10 or 20 points behind his.
I suppose at sometime coming to terms with wether IQ is the most important skill set to have. Dont you ever have the urge to mouth off with a comment like "Yes your soooo intillectually gifted that you know exactly what will happen when I decide I am worthy of being loved."
Theres an EQ... wonder how that plays into all this.

lifeinwoodinville: I last heard from mrslowmaintenance about a month ago. I have been in regular contact with her for the last year and a half. I feel comfortable in saying that her situation remains unchanged. If you want to know more PM me.

petrushka: I was gobsmacked when I heard. This is just not us. In all of 2017 we had 37 murders in the country ..... I think the echo chambers of "social media" have a lot to answer for.

misssunnybunny: petrushka, I thought I read the headline wrong (this stuff happens here, not in NZ). It is frightening the hate that is being spread; it makes my heart hurt.

saarinista: All of us, IMHO, should try to be civil and kind as much as possible in person and online. I actively Tweet (civilly) on political matters and am horrified by the rancor & trolling on both sides of the spectrum, which only inflames unstable people.
