Hi everyone,

I'm new to this site, but have been watching alot of people discuss alot of different issues here. I am very impressed to see there are people out there who have alot of the same issues as myself, since I, for so long have felt alone in my problems because I have to hide my feelings. I am always told to "snap" out of it or that life really is not as bad as it seems...its just all in my head. I have learned the alot of it is perception, but it also is a "real" feeling. I have been told by my counselor that i am "codependent" and its not based on alchoholism...it is based on trying to make everyone else happy, but feeling extremely miserable in the meantime. I hope to get to know many of you and share our ups and downs and try to support one another when we cannot get it from where it needs to come from.

Hello havingtohide...

I recently learned that i am codependant as well - much like you, feeling i have to please everyone. Im the "dont want to rock the boat" person. There was some minor addiction in my home as a child. I have since carried this attitude, although subtle, into my marriage of 12 years and i has caused many problems. I actually will be leaving in 20 min for our next counceling session.

I can relate to your nick so well. I having just recently learned of my condition it has been somewhat liberating but scary as well. I seems more and more i have learned that i have not been myself totaly with my wife...ouch, and now we both know this i have to try to be myself..wow hard to do...

I recently had an affair with a lady and it bacame very emotional and learned that i was myself in every aspect with her...wow what a good feeling...

But its just nice to know im not the only one hiding...thanks for your post.
