Codependency Symptoms Quiz

Definition Of Codependency: 

Codependency is a condition that results in a dysfunctional relationship between the codependent and other people.  A codependent is addicted to helping someone.  They need to be needed.  This addiction is sometimes so strong, the codependent will cause the other person to continue to be needy.  This behavior is called enabling.  The enabler will purposefully overlook someone abusing a child, will call in sick for someone suffering from addiction, will put roadblocks to prevent their child from becoming independent, or even keep a sick family member from getting the treatment that would make them well.  These are behaviors common to codependents.  A codependent often suffers from a 'Messiah Complex' where he sees problems with everyone and sees himself as the only person who can help.  Here is where I need to work...trying to be 'Mr. Fixit' for everyone...even those who don't feel they need anything fixed.  A codependent counselor (common) will never think your sessions are done.  In fact, they often create issues that weren't there just so they can continue to feel they're an important, no, essential part of your life.  This is one of the reasons I always spend the first counseling session evaluating the problem and setting up a schedule of sessions to complete the work.  If we're not making progress, I don't want to become the person you feel you have to take every problem's too addictive to me.  That's what codependence addiction to being needed.  These best-selling books can help you understand Codependency Symptoms and Solutions.
