I joined CoDA meetings in June 2021, after a series of unhealthy codependent relationships including a marriage of six years. I got over $10,000 in debt in my most recent relationship. I bought a car and furniture for my partner, and became incarcerated (for 14 days) when trying to break up a fight that he was involved in. I was charged with assault amongst other charges. Afterwards I realized it was time that I make some positive changes to improve myself and my life.
Thankfully, I had a therapist that recommended CoDA to me. I have been single for one year and I never felt better! It feels great to be part of a community and to have the support and understanding offered by CoDA members. Thank you for all of your help CoDA!
