On Being Stultified ∼ Honoré de Balzac, from Cousin Betty

1. to make, or cause to appear, foolish or ridiculous.
2. to render absurdly or wholly futile or ineffectual, especially by degrading or frustrating means: Menial work can stultify the mind.
I have become your poodle.  You trample on my heart, you crush me, you stultify me, and I love you as I have never loved in my life.
