Today, I wonder how much gaslighting contributed to my belief that I would not be able to adequately raise Tommy by myself.
Micah was very effective in the way he could make others as well as me feel with his condescending tone of voice, the pregnant pause as he rubbed his chin in thought as he acted the role of a wise man contemplating the ignorance of someone else. He also would deny things that happened or make up things that did not happen, to the extent that I sometimes questioned my own memory. It made me so unsure of myself that I felt crazy at times, just like the woman in the movie Gaslight.
