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.
