I am surprised there isn't a huge forum on this topic here. Is anyone out there getting help for this? Anyone in, or out of, an abusive relationship with a spouse, parent or child? I have been trying to find a group or any kind of help with this. I've read a tons of books but I need to talk stuff out with someone who's been there.

Al-anon groups deal with codependency issues.

codependency isn't limited to al-anon alone. Stronger, what type of codependency were you refering to?

the best solution for my problems so far has been working with codependency[which has a long way to go] i would love if i could hear from more people on this i have found it to be rooted in alot of shame and tramau.the hardest part is to recognize it to come out of denial.i also found that the idea of boundaries is something which alot of people could benefit from,especially the ones suffering from any form of abuse.i would recomend 2 authors which have been the only thing keeping me alive,pia mellody,john bradshaw

Melody Beattie also wrote a later book called "The Language of Letting Go". It's the best book I've read so far...... Amazing and inspirational.... It lifts me up when I feel like "I've had it....." and always manages to hit hard where I need it most.....

I also find that reading books is not enough...... you gotta actually impliment it..... work on it..... It takes loads of courage..... and lots of strength..... but it's the only way....
The first time I said "no"..... was like giving birth...... now, it's a little easier.....

Good luck.....
