Codependency Support Group

Codependency is defined as someone who exhibits too much, and often inappropriate, caring for another person's struggles. A codependent person may try to change, or feel shame about their most private thoughts and feelings if they conflict with the other person's struggles. If you are on a journey towards self-love, this support group is for you. Join us and find others who are going through the same.

  • we had a spiff a little bit ago because I found out he was still talking to both of his exes.... I'm not that kind of girl maybe other women are okay with it. But I'm not. I think, especially after 6 months, you should let them go and move on with your current relationship. He should do that out of respect for me and she should stop talking to him out of respect for the both of us... he said he...

    No Contact Woes

    I'm reaching my three-year anniversary of therapy in November, and I'm excited about the strives I've made in life. Part of the changes has been to step away from my family (mainly mom and brother) several months ago when I realized they were never going to change and that I was officially codependent. I've since taken responsiblitiy for my own codependency and have given clear boundaries to my...

    Struggling :(

    My husband was recently put into a 42 day treatment for perscription pill abuse. My children and I are not allowed to see him per him and his therapist (because we live with him, which makes no sense). I allowed him to treat me badly for years, lie, steal from myself and my family. I need help in learning how to deal with this and taking steps to make myself better. :( He is really only seeing...

A full recovery after treatment is expected. I didn't visit...
  • Hi, I was wondering if codependents attract people with personality disorders.  Do people with personality disorders feel inclined to be with codependents?  Thank you for your thoughts.

    My own worst enemy.

    don't think there's hope left anywhere for me.I have a lot of ongoing mental health problems, and with that I have been self medicating myself to help, ease my battle with my own mind. But now it's became a problem. I'm codependent on this drug, I'm now using stronger drugs just to feel different. Just to feel normal. I have became what I have always told myself I would NOT become - a drug...

  • A Letter I wrote to the family counselor at his rehab facility:Thank you for sharing the Codependent No More book with me.  It was incredibly eye opening.  I am aware once again that I have a successful, happy life to live and I somehow got in way too deep with Marshall's addiction along the way...  And immediately after making a full recovery from a previous codependent relationship, might...
