You may have noticed that I'm brand new here. To make this short, I've recently realized that I am the coaddict to someone grappling with sex addiction and schizophrenia. I started thinking about my own behaviors, and I am completely mortified. I think every relationship I've had since childhood has had an element of codependence to it...but none quite to this extent. This is the first time that I've felt like an addict. I know this relationship is unhealthy for both of us. I know I'm doing him no service by giving in to him all the time. I know I need to let him go, but I don't know how to. I don't know if I really have the strength to do it myself. Anyway, I know this is really vague, but I don't want to clog the board with all the details. I'll probably journal a bit later on. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed right now.
