Hello, all!
I'm trying to help a friend of the family. She's 27, and I sense that most of her struggles are based in that "survivle mode" instinct that she has lived in for so many years.

Does anyone have information about what I'm talking about?

When she was in prison, I sent her books on recovery and codepency and she has learned a LOT about herself.

I would love to share with her parents what "survival mode" means.

Thanks for your help! If you could send me the links to my email address I would much appreciate it!

She's in therapy and substance abuse counseling and generally moving forward. Her parents are teachable and reachable.

Thanks!

Hello lafsmuch!

Glad your friend is helping herself with therapy and counseling.

Hopefully her parents can attend Nar-anon or Al-anon to learn about the disease and their part in the family disease. We are all affected by substance abuse. Education is important. Learning not to enable is great too.

Survival mode is what most of us do when we are not enjoying this precious life. Learning to Truly be who we are...Real...takes lots of courage. Good Luck in learning more!
