Family 2 Family

I gave a talk at Week 10 of the NAMI Family 2 Family 12-week education course for family members of loved ones with mental illnesses.

The sessions are confidential and they are free. All the guest speakers did a great job. Our goal is to give our families hope.

Recovery is not a race nor is it a competition.

I always tell others the first 13 years of my recovery were the worst time of my life.

That things didn’t get better until I turned 35 and had a better job that I liked to go to.

I’m going to keep this blog entry short and sign off now.

Enjoy the day.
