Hello Raspberry Rhubarb, and welcome to the BB community. I apologise that you have not had a reply until now, occasionally they get missed.
It sounds as though you are finally feeling positive about something that you and your husband have been struggling with for a long time. I'm so pleased that you have found a good psychologist. Too many people are dissatisfied with their psychologist and often just give up hope and think its not worth the effort, or they dont work. It looks like you've found one who understands and sounds very committed to helping over the long term. It makes such a big difference to feel comfortable talking to them and have confidence in their ability and to feel that they are committed to getting your husband well again.
Knowing that your husbands condition can be treated, even if it takes 2 years, must be such a relief to both of you. You're right of course, in that it will not be an easy road. But at least you know and accept that, and thats half the battle won.
In the meantime, its really important RR to look after yourself over what will be a difficult time. Do you work, have hobbies, do regular exercise, have good friends you can spend time with? Attending to your own needs is equally important as those of your husband's, so please do not neglect yourself throughout this process.
I'd recommend you have a look at the resources below in the blue section of the BB website. Particularly the "Supporting Someone" section, where you will find lots of information and helpful advice. If you are interested in meeting other members here, I'd sugggest you drop into the BB Cafe where some of us congregate from time to time, often just to chill out. You will find it under the BB Social Zone section of the forums. There are also lots of other light hearted and fun threads there which you may enjoy. Feel free to join in anytime.
Also have a browse through other threads contained in the "Supporting family and friends with a mental health condition" Forums. You may see some which have a similar theme to your own, so please do not be shy about replying to any existing thread if you feel you have something to contribute, or have questions.
Its our pleasure to have you here with us RR. I'm sure you will find these Forums to also be very supportive and caring, and I hope you will pop back in again when you find the time. I will look out for you in the BB Social Zone, and here on your thread of course.
