Three years ago my husband and I were in crisis. We were on the brink of losing everything. I found NAMI. I took the Family-To-Family education class in N. Seattle. I cannot possibly describe how broken I was when the classes began. My husband was so very ill...and had been for well over a year. I had no idea if we would lose his business, our home, our marriage. Slowly, week by week, I gained knowledge. I gained camaraderie. I started to find hope. I completed the program and had tools to help me cope. I empathized with the horror that my husband was living. I had strategies to communicate. I had resources to call on. By the grace of God, we have found a treatment program that works. It happened almost overnight. One week he was sick, the next week we had (finally) stumbled upon the right combination of medication. I now teach the NAMI F2F program. My husband has been stable for nearly 2 years. We have life! Come join the journey. Find hope.
