Everyone should read this book. Even if you don‘t believe you have codependency issues, I promise that you probably have some codependent habits that are dragging down your life. If your life is shit-all right now, and you don‘t know why, and you want to make it better this book needs to be the next one you pick up.

Warning: kind of personal blurb. Up next for #11thHourReadathon, I started this last year when I first started going to therapy. I still go, which is hard to admit, but #mentalhealth needs to be discussed more, so I'm starting with me. We still talk about my caretaking tendencies, but I never finished the book. I will for 2017, but plan to reread and work on the prompts next time. Here's to taking better care of our minds and hearts in 2018! ❤

Calling on my Litsy family for suggestions. Almost two years ago my husband lost his best friend at 29 and today his mother at 55. Both were of addiction related causes. We are headed to a Nar-Anon meeting for the first time tomorrow. I can ask you all because I have very few IRL friends here and it would be disrespectful to address this issue on other social media platforms. Do you have any books that you've found helpful in a similar situation?

A passive-aggressive friendquaintance gave this to me years ago, as "something to think about," which irritated the shit out of me ? but somehow I never got rid of it. Apparently some part of me wants to read it. So, here goes.

vandeblogger I think I need to send this to some of my relatives 😬😬😬 3y
aprilbapryll My mother needs that. Tell me how it goes. 3y

"Defining the problem is important because it helps determine the solution. Here, the solution is vital. It means feeling better. It means recovery...the heart of the definition and recovery lies not in the other person...it lies in ourselves, in the ways we have let other...behaviors affect us..."
