I have been struggling with family of origin issues for 20 yrs, started with a major depressive episode that landed me in the hospital for 14 days. needless to say I am still asking Questions and still learning, I have the good fortune of being tenacious to help me along. I am always surprised and taken back when "something" triggers the old patterns of responses that I thought I had resolved. I am new to this site, just happened upon it while trying to dig myself out of this new hole:-)
