Hello! New to this site.

Have been in 12 step recovery for codependency for 3 years. Have worked the LDS workbook and have gone to one LDS meeting. I attend a weekly CoDa meeting in my community.

would love to talk to other LDS posters.

just wanted to say hello.

and try and figure out this website.


i'm totally codependant too    
"i have a rather abusive husband. i chose him to confirm my beliefs that all men want is sex, i'm not worth loving truly, i can't have a temple marriage, and so forth. i know i'm over-simplifying..."

"Have not heard spastic in years.
Read on guys this is the palce to learn and learn some more.

Iron sorry you have endured this hell. You are worth it. Just got to believe.
Fake it until you make it if you have to. You can make it.
It is a journey we have to travel now.
As my wife has learned, self matters in this situation (have not read DR Phil - think he is a spaz myself).
As I have learned salvation is an individual thing. Can hope and work for an eternal marriage and family but got to get ourselves there first."

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "

— Boyd K. Packer
