Forgot to come back and respond to this (I blame sleep).
There's too much good stuff to list, over the years I've known you. But things that come up repeatedly when I talk about you...
You are doing an EXCELLENT job of parenting, by my standards, regardless of any daily "weaknesses".
You are one of the strongest people I've ever known.
Even with all your stresses and insanity, you're the healthiest in attitude since I've known you. The signs are there for future good growth too!
You maintain an overall level of physical health (most of the time) that is better than most people, even though we all always have room for improvement there. :)
You are doing a superb job at purging, finding new levels to challenge yourself.
You have always had a good mindfulness of your environmental impact, even if your actions on that fluctuate with energy and support/lack thereof from others around you.
You are the only bipolar person I've yet met to create and continue to create and try out coping mechanisms for your illness while not on meds. You have one of the healthiest attitudes toward taking meds that I've met in a bipolar person, as well.
I have always found you beautiful.
You are loved and worth loving.
