Hi all,

My therapist suggested that I check out a CoDA meeting. I will be honest I really am kind of nervous about going (to the extent I am trying to find reasons not to go). I have read about co-dependency and feel I do suffer from this, however I don't come from a terrible home where I was beaten or sexually abused, I never went through anything bad really in my life in fact I was very fortunate and had a lot of advantages most do not have. I am worried that I will go to this meeting and my problems will seem stupid compared to others. However it is effecting my life and my therapist thinks this would be really helpful for me.

I guess what I am asking is what should I expect? What is a typical meeting like? What have your experience been like going to these meetings?

You have nothing to loose by attending a meeting. You can always walk out or never return if it is not what you expected. In CODA meetings people take turns sharing their story. This type of thing can make some people feel like they are not alone and an opportunity to vent.

You can say anything about me, but I am who I am & that’s something you could never be.

You need to figure that out for you to experience. Whatever it is, it'll be for your own good and welfare.

I am happy to hear that you are willing to take that first step. I would like to hear how it all works out for you.
