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.

caballotierra: Hey all, I setup a new account since my W figured out my login and was using my posts against me. Since we're going through divorce, I thought it would be safer to remove my old name. Although I feel attached to it.

caballotierra: Does anyone know how to delete my old account? Right now, it's still searchable, which is a problem.
