Love, Marriage & Mental Illness

Happy Anniversary to My Beloved! Love, Marriage & Mental Illness.
There’s hope. You can find and nurture love when living with mental illness.

Been married 22 years today. Started dating 25 years ago. Some of us living with mental illness can and do have stable relationships. Some of us need someone else in our lives. My husband and I support each other, help each other, complement each other. Plus, we made a kid, now a young adult.

Not easy. Not by any means. Stressful to love someone with mental illness or another chronic illness. Caretaking is not easy. But, it’s worth it. At least for us it has been.

Important that you express gratitude. I’m thankful for all my husband does for me and our son. Thank you, sweetheart.

    Happy anniversary! I absolutely agree, people with a mental illness can live in a long and fulfilling relationship, (my husband and I started dating 30 years ago). Of course it can be difficult, but it’s definitely possible.

      My husband and son both live with anxiety. Not easy, but at least we have compassion for each other and try to help each other out.
