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.

  • As soon as things seem better I think I don't need Alanon meetings, self-work, or meditation. Then the cycle repeats again. Today I caught my husband in a lie concerning alcohol and it hurt me very much because I believed he wasn't drinking. I feel like the stupidest person in the world for trusting him. I am going to another meeting and I'm going to keep going even when things are good. Seems...

We moved in together even and about a year later I found out he was back at it. This time was worse, he wasn't remorseful and said he never wanted a relashionship to start etc that I pushed him into it. So we split and I moved out,...

    What is codependency?

    6
    Hi, I'm new here. I started posting on another support group about my husbands drinking which has been a problem in our relationship for 11 years now. Someone in the support group told me I should read a book called Codependency No More. I looked up codependency and don't know if that applies to me exactly. The definition is confusing to me. I hope that I can get some insight here as to what it...
  • I recently started going to an amazing therapist who has hinted around the fact that I may be codependent. The more I looked into it over the past few weeks the more I am realizing that this is for sure me. Thinking about my current and past relationships I realize they all seem to be with people who have narcissistic tendoncies and in these relationships I seem to take a backseat to what I...

    Can't stop self destructing...

    I can't stop self destructing.My ex-partner and I broke up, tride to rekindle, and failed. But now I feel like so much damage has been done I don't know how to reconcile things. I was so insecure, and so codependent - that even when I could not be with him, I had to know his every move. I had to constantly text/call him. It was a fire that burned inside of me to reach out to him. And even after...
  • Just joined this support group because I realized I am co-dependent after reading an article that completely described my behaviors. Since I read that article I've been going back (in my head) to times in my life where I see how my co-dependency started and how it evolved from there. I had no idea! I thought of myself as organized, hard-working, problem-solving and helpful. Even joked to many...

    husband codependent on his mother

    Has anyone faced this issue with their husband and his mother?I am a codependent, however, my husband, IMO is codependent on his mother. He shows no affection to me what so ever and I am not allow (his desire not mine) to show affection to him or even talk to him in a loving way. But, I am starting to wonder if the lack of intimacy we have, both physical and emotional is impart due to the fact...
  • I came to accept that my mom is never going to change. She will not accept that she is not always the victim in every situation. I feel a need to write this post because I feel like I am going insane. Few weeks ago, she tried to manipulate me into doing something I do not want. When I did not give in, she slammed the phone on me and has been giving me the silent treatment. How do we protect our...

    Anxiety about the end of rehab

    4
    My husband will be leaving rehab in a week or two and although I am so proud of him and really see him wanting to fight his addiction, I have huge fears about him re-entering his life. I know they are teaching him all the tools he needs to get back to normal life without the drugs but there are some people that he just can't get rid of from his life that I am worried about. His mother and father...
  • I'm not sure what things I should journal, and what I should post to the community as a whole. I think i'll post this both places as a first time experiement. I've been having a hard time lately. It feels as if there is a black cloud around my fuzzy brain. This is kind of a cyclical thing for me, and sometimes the depression is scary and I think feeds my codependent tendencies, because I seek the...

    Frustrated with boyfriends mom

    3
    She implies that I am not his real partner, always mentioning his ex and his son, and expecting that our lives revolve around his old life. I never feel important or validated by her so I have tried to keep my distance. However my bf is completely blind to her behaviour. She sends him texts behind my back, usually involving some crisis or another- it's got less, but the old wound still remains....

    My story

    4
    I'm codependent. Yup, that's me. I think I have been my entire life. As far back as I can remember my life has been plagued by anxiety and depression. I have made myself a victim of life, and am recently coming to terms with that and taking ownership of my happiness. In retrospect I see that the majority of my life choices and lifestyles chices have been fueled by an urge to relieve, to escape,...
