  1. The convalescent codependent says:

    After I read Chained a few months ago, I began to study the Codependent. I had been naturally obsessed learning everything I could about the Narcissist, until I finished this book. Another light bulb switched in my healing process, and I began to become curious at my role in the dance. Chained help me put a finger on how I in particular had found myself caught in a Narcissists web. Chained also help me re train my brain from living by the fate other’s bestowed upon me, to living in a free form, free will, state I craved but never could unlock the cages within my psyche that had been created as a very small child until this book. I feel I have sprinted through a few steps in my healing because of this book, and I do recommend others to read this if they are truly dedicated to recovering and putting the work into deconstructing the addicted habits a codependent is slave to.

    This book is excellent also ( all of them), any the term chained is so appropriate.
    Codependants are not doormats!!

      Sadly, Nikita, that is exactly what we are. (By “we”, I mean codependents. I am not automatically calling you a Co-Dep because I don’t know if you are or not.). And that is certainly how HG and all narcs see us (again, “us” being co-dependents, which includes me, but not necessarily you).
      You read any relationship advice column and they say how most men DON’T want clingy or doormat-y women. And that may be true. But obviously these advice “experts” didn’t ask HG. Who as we know is not “most men”.

        Hi Cody

        Thanks for your answer.
        Codependancy can eventually lead a woman to be treated like a ” doormat” so its sad to hear. Fortunately its also a spectrum so people can recover or move further out of the spectrum as they become aware.
        It sounds funny like you said HG is not most men … 😂. Def. not.

  4. Cody says:

    I have not (yet) read all of your books, but this one has so far been the most helpful. I just wish I could unlearn how to be such a doormat. The other women envy the image I show off to the world on fb and ig, but the only reason why I am so prized by G is because I am an extreme codependent. 🙁

      Thank you Cody. I should imagine that Exorcism (which I alluded to yesterday although Alice has helpfully suggested a revised title based on her relevant earlier post) and Defender (which is being written at present at my retreat) will no doubt assist you in particular,in conjunction with your continued reading generally.

      1. Cody says:

        Thanks, HG. I’m doing contract work again. Barely making enough to be able to live in the area I’m in, but when I have some more $ will put my orders in on amazon for sure.
