Codependence has often been considered one of those "made-up" terms to describe an uncomfortable circumstance as if it were a "real" condition. In her autobiography, Teresa Hamilton reveals just how real codependency can be. As she struggles through life-threatening situations with her alcoholic, drug addicted and often violent husband, we're drawn to yell, "Get out of there!"...but she can't. She is as addicted as her husband, not to drugs, but to "make it work." This is the very real condition of a codependent...addicted to being needed to fix things. Teresa's story is told in frank detail, taking us through the emotions she felt while being ignored, cheated and abused and while being greatly helped by strangers she calls "angels," at the points of greatest desperation. Her story gives us hope that, regardless of circumstances we can recover from addiction to our "dream life," just like Teresa. For the next several weeks, we'll review the book, chapter-by-chapter.
