co-dependency issues

Is anyone on here dealing with co-dependency issues at all? Just wondering if alot of people that suffer from depression also have co-dependence issues too? Thanks.

Re: co-dependency issues

Slowmo I think this is a good topic to bring up. I believe many depressed people are also co-dependant. They may not know it because there is this stigma with co-dependency that makes people think of an "abused spouse of an alcoholic". But it isn't just that. Anyone who is a loving and giving person or even self-sacrificing, then later feels used and taken advantage of might be co-dependant. I finally realized that I was that kind and am taking steps to correct. The hardest thing for me is to try to be a little bit selfish when I despise that trait in other people.

Re: co-dependency issues

yes there are so many people co-dependant.. I was co-dependant on wow... a lot of things.. mainly on the feeling of being needed in relationships. I had a co-dependancy of helping the other person, I had to become them in order to relate, and I loved doing it. I have something called Borderline Personality Disorder... and I tend to live through other people, and then become dependant on it. If that person goes away, I go insane because I don't know who I am anymore. I have all my opinions, and I am very independant in a lot of ways, but, I always need people around in order to feel sain, which is a type of co-dependancy...

Re: co-dependency issues

I also have co-dependency the extent of it being called symbiosis. A great part of me is "swallowed" within someone else and all that's left is a small fragment with no life of her own...a poor excuse for a human being <IMG SRC="">
Take care.
