I have a great friend..ex fiance in the 12 step program. He isn't able to have a relationship b/c of the need to be selfish in order not to affect his recovery and to stop his co dependency. however he tells me he loves me all the time. Today we had a fight because i was cranky and he has a bad attitude. I feel like when ever i have a problem i dont want to share it with him as to not interefere with his own recovery. I feel like i am causing problems like i did today. We had a fight and i left the visit. I guess what i want to know is proper ettiquite for having a friendship with a recovering addict. He always talks about giving back to the guys he lives with but never really gives back to me who supports him the most! How should i handle situation??
