My name is Byron and I am codependent.
My story to my codependent fans is one of heartbreak
and one of discovery. A true novel! I am 25 and have been everyone around me for
the last 16 years. I am putting the finishing touches on a divorce and I am
alone for the first time in a long time. So now Im dealing with 1. DIVORCE
and 2. CODEPENDENCY. A double whammy and one that I do not wish on anyone. I
went to my first meeting last night and was blown away that other people have
the same problems that I do. It was sad but a real pleasure to know Im not
alone. I have no clue who I am. I only know the people I have taken from. I am
not selfish in the least bit, but I do know that the time for Byron is now. I
feel more depressed now than I ever have and I feel as I have no control over my
divorce. She is cheating and I have no control. No control...
As I cry writing this I know I will be at another
meeting to share and be apart of a great group of people like I met last week.
Codependency is a disease to me. I hate being codependent, I mean I will
fight and I will pray and I will rejoice that I made the first step last night.
That alone will take the scaredness away. It did for me. I didnt walk away
any more happy to go home and I wasnt cured. But I was opening the door to
opening up! This, my codependent friends, is what I need. And 7 hugs a day. Have
great days and peaceful breaths.
