Feeling included is crucial to the human experience. Psychologists consider the narcissistic silent treatment a form of abuse. Sometimes days or weeks, which keeps the victim in a constant state of fight-or-flight during which they feel isolated and rejected, as well as physically sick. Headaches, stomachaches, and a general punched-in-the-gut feeling are the most commonly reported symptoms. They have been using the silent treatment to manipulate people long before you came along. In fact, narcissists give their significant others and even their own children the Silent Treatment to intentionally inflict emotional distress. It is scheming and tactical. When someone is ostracized it affects the part of their brain called the anterior cingulate cortex. But, the narcissistic silent treatment is often more painful than actual physical pain. If you try to recall physical pain, you might not remember much.

About this book
There is no freedom to think, no freedom to speak your mind, and no freedom to do anything that 'the brethren' say not to. Sometimes I think I'II get crazy or dipressed. There have been times in the last three years that we have had to live paycheck to paycheck so the idea of a rich doctor is antiquated in most cases. First and most importantly, I see major trust issues in your future if you both think the other is brainwashed. Probably drop me a text or two.
As our relationship has progressed, this vague hypothetical question has led to some much more concrete thinking about what an interfaith marriage would be like for me, for him, and for us. I have spent my life alone waiting for things to get better. My husband has gone from proselytizing and thinking he knows it all to a real spiritual seeker, albeit with a strong testimony in the church. Easily found in most hospital lobbies. If your spouse thinks 8 is too young to get baptized, are you all right with waiting until they are older. I wanted to be able to fully share my faith with my spouse, but this expectation was now up in the air. I made a conscious decision to marry outside the church for my own reasons. I am also certain that there are callings and opportunities that I would have had, were I married to a faithful LDS woman, that I have missed. It's gonna hurt, and it's gonna break her heart, but much less so than waiting until you've both committed to each other and start discussing your future together.
