Nearest one is over 30 minutes away and I don't have a car. I don't mind asking for a ride up the road but a 30 min. drive is more than up the road and then there is the time of the meeting...another 30 minutes to an hour?

That's too bad. :( Oh, well. . .as my sponsor used to say . . . well, she still does sometimes when I see her. (She moved in with her daughter around the first of the year.) I lucked out and found a good Emotions Anonymous meeting. My impressions is they are a little more "iffy" in their ability to help their target group -- people with emotional problems. But, like I said, I lucked out.

I went to a CODA meeting once and it really wasn't for me but it's the closest thing I could think of that might be helpful. Maybe they have an internet meeting? EA had that at one point, at least they did several years ago.

For me, I had a dependence on "standards", which I wrote myself at least in part. But then I did need other people's . . . something. Sometimes meeting other people's needs -- certainly not my own -- made me feel good about myself.

Knowing yourself and sticking to it . . . no matter what your partner says. . . who cares what he says, anyway? He lies, so what difference does it make? But, yeah, living with somebody like that . . . especially when it is in your nature to care about people . . . that's got to be tough.

When does school start back for you? Any progress on getting supplies for your son?

Thanks for your concern and support DD. My mom is getting help from a church friend to get what he needs. As for living with him and caring about people...I think I may have a dependence on standards but only my own. I do pride myself on my kindness and compassion and try to hold myself to it no matter the person or situation I am faced with. Let others own their actions as I own mine. It is nice to know that you care DD. Thank you :)
