I think my favorite part of the whole podcast was (in the 2nd story) when she said "shit", and her father said "Watch the language." For some reason, it kinda picture-framed him for me and gave me a clearer understanding of what all this meant to him... where he was coming from, his integrity. Even though he later said the same word himself (and immediately apologized 😉)

My ex had psychotic breaks like this, towards the end of our marriage. He was in film school, taking Adderall and opiates all the time, and going days without sleep (all 3 are a dangerous recipe for disaster) - and he straight up snapped. I went to stay with my mom, before I realized what had really happened, and he accused me the next day of scaling the apartment building, and sneaking into our room on the 4th floor, to move furniture around while he wasn't there. A few years after our divorce, I found out that I had been starring as the villain in many of his psychotic dilusions over the years, even though I hadn't seen or spoken to him at all. It's sad. He is amazingly intelligent, and outrageously funny - but extremely unstable. Especially since he won't quit mixing uppers and downers. Stay away from drugs kids! 😒
