Funny, aside from the 'gaslighting' itself, the behaviors described her are common in most abusive relationships. The on and off behavior, providing brief breaks from abuse.

The escalation, the blaming of the victim, or the defensiveness when challenged, et cetera.... unhealthy relationships are generally similar despite the dominate characteristics.
