Thanks Phil,
Falling in 'sick' with someone---oh, how true. Maybe it will help to remind myself that as you say, these relationships have nothing to do with love.

I went to a couple of S.L.A.A. meetings many years ago when I was getting out of another (but far less involved) relationship. I could certainly use the support of a group now, I just have to pick a venue. Even Alanon or Naranon might help, as he was still actively in his addiction for much of the time we were living together. I couldn't believe that I'd been in such denial when he finally told me.

Apart from that I'm re-reading "How To Break Your Addiction To A Person"--as Temmie has said, it's a really good book. Unfortunately I read it years ago and apparently it didn't sink in. I'm a little dismayed to be winding out the same pattern so much later down the road.

And as for your last question...yikes. I can only say I guess I'm glad we didn't have children together (even though that's a really sore subject for me).

Thanks again Phil, I do appreciate it.
