I've said that myself. Technically speaking, it's not co-dependency because co-dependency would be if I was trying to keep her in a dependent state, as I understand it. Aside from that distinction, yes it is like co-dependency. It's not a problem I'm taking lightly, and with all due respect to everyone here, if I tried solving that problem here with lay people, that would be taking it lightly.
