Two nights ago, Lorelai came to me with my phone, scrolling through some pictures. "Mommy, I took these to show people what it's like to be Bipolar!"
Surprised, I asked, "You want to show people?" "Yes," she said, excited about how well she depicted the moods.
I asked her if it she wanted it posted here on the homeschool blog. She replied, "Yes. It's fine for you to post it and it's OK if people know I have Bipolar because it might help someone. I mean, we can't be the only family living with this, right?"
So Alexis took the photos into her program and made this collage. (Can you hear my heart pounding? I'm still easing into all this special need sharing.)
I'm very proud of this because
1) She's hoping to help others
2) It shows that she's actively using her cognitive abilities (we've been working on this lately)
