  • I think a severe dislike would be considered a "mild case of pentheraphobia."

  • its not exaggerated, she's made it very clear that she hates me and isn't shy to let everyone know, although I can honeslty say no one's really clear as to why.

    I know its because by marrying her boy, she lost her direct control of him and that ticks her off that he's his own man with his own mind now.
