Good for you for standing up for what you need. It's amazing sometimes how codependence sneaks up on you!
Counseling is the bomb, at least it has been from my experience. I've learned so much about myself the past few years, and it has helped me in many ways.

I am often amazed at how people try to talk their way through things even while their actions express the direct opposite. And the truth is, actions are the most important thing, not the spin someone wants to give them.
My other fave is a sign I saw in my office the other day:
"You can't talk your way out of problems your behavior got you into."
