I recently had a job review and I still have my job, but just barely. My problem is that I have not been able to concentrate long enough to get my work done. On top of all that, my shopping addiction has reemerged--likely related to the stress of not being productive. I have forgotten to pay bills. I have been deceitful in trying to cover up my spending, for example, I got three credit cards without my partner's knowledge. Needless to say, my issues (poor review, spending, and deceitful behavior) are negatively affecting my relationship with my partner. My partner in response to all this has demanded to see my review and to create a log of all my spending since January. As a result of my actions, I have been undergoing some harsh treatment including verbal bullying. I know that my partner no longer trusts me, is worried about the drop income if I lose my job, and whether or not I can be responsible with finances. I don't know what to do and I'm questioning my sanity. To complicate things we have a young child.
I have been with my boyfriend who is an addict for seven years whichakes me his codependent now he is clean going on 62 days he is telling me I need to also change my life and way of thinking he fails to understand that he has mentally messed me up cheating on me constantly lieig to me so many trust issues made and makes me feel.so unloved and unwanted
I have been with my current boyfriend for a year now. It has been an incredibly rocky year. I had not completely broken things off with my last "friend with benefits" who was detrimental and now that I have learned about codependece and recognizing every sign and symptom of codependency in my relationship with him, which caused me to spiral into a deep depression. Anyway, I felt bad ignoring him...
