Brandon talks with River about her toxic relationship with a disabled, charismatic, and manipulative abuser. It’s a story of caretaking, jealousy, guilt, paranoia, and restraining orders. Plus they discuss, gaslighting, love bombing, mental health, isolation, codependency, financial abuse, drumming, control, walking on eggshells, victim playing, toxic family members, and much more. *** We used two different devices due to a power issue. The sounds are completely different toward the end of the episode. *** Trigger Warning – This episode mentions that River’s partner came from an abusive household of every kind. There is no graphic description. ***
