Is gaslighting abuse?
For 6.5 years my ex convinced me that my memory was going bad. I am an eidetic (I may be spelling that wrong) learners one of the methods I use is reading and hearing once that happens i remember it for just about ever. It started with not being able to remember dates, which I've never been good at. She would occasionally make fun of me for forgetting seemingly everything. Then it gradually she got to where she would remember events completely differently to the way I would. Honestly it drove me deeper into my formerly wiccan ways seeking to magickally cure myself of the memory loss. It made me question my sanity and made me fear some sort of early onset Alzheimer's. It got so bad that at 23 I started taking ginko biloba to try and correct the problem. I've always prided myself on my ability to instantly recall vivid details about most things. And now that we've been separated for two years I recall things with perfect clarity from random facts to detailed network infrastructures at work. My question to you is would you classify this as abuse? And what are your stories? Have people had similar things happen to them? If so please share.
