My name is Caz, I’m a love addict, probably in the obsession category. I’m new to this so bear with me. I’ve been in recovery for 18 months. In March 2017 I ended contact with my POA and have been sober since. However I have found that in that time I will experience deep, albeit usually short, bouts of depression that seem to be about mourning the relationship, or rather, mourning the elated high that was so abundant when the relationship began, even though it began three years ago. I will also have to stop myself from reaching out- because I ended things in such a way it’s impossible for me to. But the want is still there. Is this normal for recovery? To have withdrawal symptoms and depression surrounding the topic this far into recovery?
