Official Announcement

(Right after we tackle codefriendency, we're obviously going to move on to eating disorders.)

M: Hello! As many of you know, I'm Mel.
E: And I'm El.
M: And we have been best friends since we were twelve years old.
E: But lately things have gotten a little more...intense.
M: And we'd like to announce that our relationship has evolved into something more.
E: We are officially CODEFRIENDENT!
M: We want to take this opportunity to put our face(s) on a significant issue and help folks come to terms with their own codefriendency.
E: Not that there's anything wrong with being codefriendent!
M: Totally! We want to make codefriendency the "handi-capable" of behavioral issues.
E: Oprah? Gayle? Are you paying attention?
M: Yeah, El, like Oprah and Gayle have nothing better to do right now.
E: Well, if they are reading this they're going to think I'm lovely and that you are very, very snarky. Continue.
M: We believe that it's possible to have a healthy and fruitful codefriendency. It doesn't mean you have low self-esteem or can't function on your own. 
E: It just means you don't want to.
M: And it doesn't mean that you don't trust your romantic partner entirely. 
E: It just means you want to have a strong back-up if things go sour.
M: For example, I just spent ten days in Costa Rica with my husband. What a wonderful trip! Did I email El every night with updates? Yes. Yes, I did. 
E: Did I manically wait for those updates and hope that Mel had decent enough internet access in the middle of a rainforest to reply quickly? Yes. Yes, I did. 
M: And we're totally NOT ashamed of that.
E: Actually, Mel, it sounds kind of creepy now that we're putting it out there.
M: Don't wimp out on me, Woman. We're making a point here. A scientific-y, medical one.
E: Right! Codefriendency is not creepy. It's entirely normal. And we're here for you if you have any questions or concerns.
M: We'd like to know how you function in your codefriendent relationships and/or how you balance them with the rest of your busy life.
E: So come visit us this Thursday, February 3rd at Comix for MEL & EL: Our Time of the Month and tell us what you think.
M: El?
E: Yes, Mel?
M: Wanna go get something to eat?
E: Totes. I feel like I haven't talked to you all day.
M: That's funny because we've been talking all day.
E: That is funny.
