From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

"Gaslighting or gas-lighting is a form of mental abuse in which a victim is manipulated into doubting their own memory, perception, and sanity.[1][2] Instances may range from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.

"The term owes its origin to the 1938 play Gas Light and its film adaptations. The term has been used in clinical and research literature.[3][4]"
Ingrid Bergman in the 1944 film Gaslight

Pretty sure this is what my sister went through when she was married to that dipshit she was married to. Thank goodness she got out of there. I know he blames me for breaking them up, if it were true I'd take great pride in that...

I have an online friend who this is happening to. She's the same lady who gave Charlie the big cat tree. I looked up the term after getting it from her. Jesus.
