I relate to the whole abandonment syndrome
I have been battling this all my life. There are many abandonment issues as a child, Dad went into service the day I was born and was gone for 15mo. Then mom and dad divorced when I was 4. Didn't see much of him growing up. He was probably an alcoholic. Oh I do remember one time he was drunk and he came over to me and put his arm around me and said, you don't like your dad do you. And I did not like him when he was drunk.
I just found out that I lived with him and his girlfriend who both drank, when I was 4 or at one time after the divorce. I know nothing about this. It has brought up issues for me, big time, that I have not wanted to socialize as before.
I come from a very dysfunctional family, cold and unfeeling people, and a very mean sister. I have a belief in God and believe he will help me as I understand what my real issues are and this has clarified them a lot. Thanks!
Abandonment and the train of ill as well as Codependency is multigenerational and it is time for it to be released. I am glad I found this site. Thanks again! Thank God for recovery and I have been in it for years. I think this is the missing piece.
