If someone continuously feels overwhelmed but is incapable of taking care of themselves, they could be living with codependency. Codependency is a behavioral condition that is defined by dysfunctional relationships in which one person enables another individual’s addiction, poor mental health or irresponsible life choices.
Assessing Your Risk of Codependency
While these quizzes can help you evaluate the likelihood that you or someone you know is in a codependent relationship, they cannot serve as substitutes for an official diagnosis. Only mental health professionals can accurately diagnose a mental health condition. Discuss the results of the assessments with a physician to determine if treatment is necessary.
