With mental illness, the spouse often gets left with the burdens of the family, and is left very isolated. All the support can go to the spouse with the disorder, when we as the partner, need just as much love, understanding, and support. This podcast is my way of trying to provide a small piece of that, and to share each other's stories and offer helpful advice, support, and community.

Thank you!

Thank you for doing his podcast. It’s so true that it makes you feel so much better to know you’re not alone, my husband is bipolar, suffers from severe depression, OCD, PTSD, anxiety. His disease has made it so he cannot work and little things like listening to your podcast really helps me day to day. Thank you!

Thank You

I appreciate you sharing, my wife is bipolar, has seizures, lupus, and chronic pain from some nerve damage during the birth of our daughter. Just hearing someone else struggling with the same issues I struggle with helps due to a different perspective or experience. We are going on year 13 and I almost divorced her recently but I just couldn’t give up on her. It’s hard but I think you have completely temper whatever expectations you had of marriage or normalcy. You can try to paddle upstream, but learning how to deal with the downstream ride and knowing when and where you need to interject is key. I often feel like I can’t do anything right for her when the right thing to do sometimes is nothing, but be there when she asks. Stay strong sister and thank you.
