Thank you for chiming in, MarieG . I was honestly starting to question myself…was I seeing things that weren’t there? Your response brought me back to center…no. I was not imagining things.

I was raised by and then married toxic men. I have been literally gaslighted into mental health facilities twice. So I don’t always trust my instincts anymore ; thank you for reinforcing their validity today. ☺

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
