Hello. I just found this site this evening.
I have never 'chatted' on line like this before, so this is very new to me. I was researching codependency because recently my therapist used that term. I had heard the term before but until I read up on it, I truly did not know what it was all about. When I was reading the symptoms, it was as if they were describing me. It makes me uncomfortable knowing I am codependent, but I don't know why I feel that way. I read we become codependent because of how we were allowed to, or rather not allowed to, express ourselves as children within our family guidelines. Is that always the case? I don't visit my childhood very often; I don't know why - I just know I can't. I'm scared to find out about myself. I am separated from my husband of 27 years and for the first time in my life, I don't know who I am. And I'm terrified. Are these feelings normal? Also, can anybody recommend some good reading material about codependency? Thanks. Danitim

Very good book recommendation from Ms. Confused. I remember reading it a few years ago and being amazed at hearing how well it described my feelings.
