Codepression, as in co-depression, not code-pression, is a neighboring state to codependancy. I noticed tonight as I was talking with one of my dearest friends, how her abysmal depression soon got me thinking about the few things that were going wrong in my life. Soon, almost before I realized it, I was agreeing with what she was saying, instead of attempting to console her, and was quickly wallowing in my own misery, right alongside her.

She had caught me by surprise by reminding me how alike we felt about so many things. I was so surprised, that by the time she was ready to go, I was already in tears.

*sigh* But I feel better now. Codepression is a strange state, indeed.
