Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.

Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.

Constant Chaos - Deliberately starts arguments with you or others. May treat you well in front of others, but changes when you’re alone.

Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.

Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.

Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,

Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.

Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.

Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.

Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.

Corrupting - Convincing a person to accept and engage in illegal activities.

Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.

Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.

Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.

Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.

Always reblob.

Yeah.

I’m starting to accept that this can happen to anyone, regardless of demographic. It’s hard, I’m learning, because there’s not always one precipitating event or moment you can point to. It just happens, and then you wonder if it’s your fault.

I had chill bumps and a few tears at the end of Flatline. He’s back. Stop reading now if you don’t get how a fictional creation can feel real sometimes.

This is a ‘person’ I’ve loved since before I was a teenager, before I was a man, before I even knew what kind of man I wanted to be. And it’s probably not exaggeration to say that the Doctor (Troughton/Pertwee/Baker/Davison) helped me make decisions about character that guide me to this day. So when I felt that the show had lost that essential core early in the season, I was really upset. This episode, and Capaldi’s moment above, just made me very happy.

What do you do when your daughter wants to put on heels and golf upstairs?

You go to the other end of the hall and act as a ball return.

Slow-motion sprinkler. BECAUSE I CAN

Delicate we stir,
new rhythms in these old sheets,
quiet hands on skin.
