I recently realized that my ex (who is a covert narcissist) dehumanizes me. Since I filed for divorce a couple of years ago, I don't recall him using my name in verbal discussions or emails / texts to anyone (including the kids, therapists, etc.), on the stand in divorce court. He always referred to me as "your mother", "their mother", "the petitioner", "her", "she", etc.. I thought it was odd for a while but didn't think anything of it until someone pointed out that it seems like he is…
