“CoDA has really opened the door for me”

 

I am a recovering addict, clean for 4 months now, and I have just discovered through CoDA that I am a very codependent person also. I do struggle with depression along with high and low mood swings at times. I live each day absolutely one day at a time. Childhood trauma, a family that lived to gaslight me it seems, and addiction outcomes from using substances have resulted in PTSD.

I've finally been directed plainly enough for my very confused mind to understand and engage in CoDA. CoDA has really opened the door for me to find the silver lining and understand why I may react the way I do and why I have such a survival state of mind. I want nothing more in the rest of my years but to be involved with my higher power, to be the mom I know I can be, and to not feel so inadequate to do life for myself and my children, myself.
