Hello everyone! I was on this site a couple years ago and loved it. I am back and excited to be back. I have been codependent all my life...starting from when I was a child and had to take care of my mom...as well as every relationship I have been. I have been with my partner for 6 months now and unfortunately we are having some problems. Mostly because I am bipolar and it has been an emotional rollercoaster. But my codependency is a major factor. One of the things that is a major problem especially right now is my neediness. I know how important it is to have alone time for both partners in a relationship...but when she asks for alone time, which she totally deserves, I feel rejected or abandoned... I hate it! My self esteem sucks and I am sure once I work on that and continue with CoDA meetings things will get better and the neediness will decrease. I would love to hear what things work for you when or if you feel needy in a relationship. Thanks!
