Hello All...

I am new to this discussion board. It looks like a great place to hang out and share. I just recently discovered or acknowledged that I am codependent. I atteneded my first CODA meeting last week and plan to continue. I am looking for all the pointers and help I can as I go through this journey of recovery. I am in my 40's and feel like I am just starting my life!

I came from a very emotionally abusive family where I learned to buried my feelings as a survival mechanism. With my admission of codependecy it is like my subconcious is finally releasing all these emotions I've bottled up and I am flooded by them all. I feel very overwhelmed because I am so unprepared to feel so much. I am an emotional mess right now. Is this normal? Any pointers on what to do with this flood of emotions?

Yes it is normal. Chelonia Mydas just recently suggested to someone that they imagine the emotions as waves in an ocean and just let them wash over you until you are able to deal with them.
