Subject: CoDA Weekly Reading 8/24/21
Date: August 24th 2021

I am a recovering addict clean for 4 months now and I have just discovered through CODA that I am a very co-dependent 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. With childhood trauma, a family that lived to gaslight me it seems, and addiction outcomes from using, all resulting into PTSD. I've finally been directed plainly enough for my very confused mind to understand and engage in CODA that has really opened doors to me finding the silver lining and understand why I may react and 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, the mom I know I can be, and not feel so inadequate to do life for myself and children, myself.
