A Fresh Start
Allie gives me a reason to get out of bed. Even when I am really down and out I can't just crawl down in my covers like I used to. All throughout my twenties on a bad day I would cry and do everything I could to avoid life. It was tough when I had my job...sometimes I would cancel appointments because I was so depressed. When you have a child you can't cancel, you can't check out, you have to feed them, clean them, get them to school. Allie makes me want to live even when my mind is playing awful tricks on me and I want to check out. She is the light to my daily life. Yes my husband is too but now that I have a child I feel as though I have so much more of a responsibility to stay on top of my illness. I need to be here for Allie 100% and that means working on what it takes to beat bipolar one day at a time. I love Allie more than I thought I could love anybody. I love this picture of her in her little Burberry coat in front of the famous fountain at Balboa park. It shows happiness...it show life. Maggie
