Wordless (almost) Wednesday: Little Bear Shares Her Moods with You

Jan 15, 2013

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 replied, 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?"

With that decided, Alexis made this collage. 

I'm very proud of this because

  • She's hoping to help others
  • It shows that she's actively using her cognitive abilities (we've been working on this lately)
We'll call this:The Cycle.

This 9-year-old little girl has created a photo collage depicting the mood cycle of bipolar disorder. www.HeartofMichelle.com

    That is just so sweet that she wants to share to help others.

  2. I thought so too. It's not the easiest thing to have or to live with.. it would be easy for her to just not want to tell anyone.

    Precious. I admire her courage and wisdom for a young girl! And I do love the picture too.

  4. Thanks, Silvia! She was excited to see it posted here. I'll pass along your words to her.
