Annapurna & The Crazymaking Abuser – Domestic Violence, Narcissist Abuse, IPV

Play episode

For the first year of Annapurna’s relationship, everything was perfect. She was swept off her feet, taken on trips, and seen for all her hard work. She was living a dream. However, after an argument that turned physical, nothing was ever the same again. Annapurna’s ex morphed into someone she didn’t recognize, and because of his gaslighting, so did she.

It’s a story of victim playing, identity erosion, physical abuse, crazy making, putdowns, infidelity, love bombing, undercutting, fixing, future faking, hoping for change, lying, stalking, financial abuse, cyberstalking, love addiction, trauma bonds, and much more.
