Oh I just love codependence...

Recommended Posts

...especially combined with OCD...

So when I have a day off and my boyfriend has to work (we live together) I can't bring myself to do anything at all during the day, until he gets back from work.  I feel like, by doing things, I'll be "betraying" him somehow, though I don't know why I feel this way.  I'm also paranoid about going out at all in the hopes that he will come back early. I don't want to be gone if he comes back.  It really sucks, because it means that on those days, not only do I not get anything done, but I barely get dressed and out of bed, and I feel nothing but lonely, miserable, and depressed all day until he gets back.

I don't want to be this way, but I have no idea how not to be!  It sucks so much, and I know that I'm probably putting pressure on him as well, though indirectly, to try and stay home as often as possible, because he knows that it upsets me when he leaves.  I don't want to continue to do this to him!


Is anyone else like this?  At all?
