I Went To My First Meeting Last Week . . .

... and I walked in terrified as ever. I am 28 years old and for the first time in my life I realize that I am codependent. I have been labeled, but it's true. I am recently separated from a man and stepson and am alone for the first time in my life. I have always supported others and never myself.

I find myself deeply depressed and lost. I want out! I want a new life. I want to live like other people that seem so happy The first meeting was awesome. I cried before anyone showed up, because of the anxiety that I was going to have to face my demons. But as people started talking, I realized that I was not alone. I didn't speak at all but I listened a whole lot. I plan to attend more meetings.
