I think the best thing for Kyle might have been his friends' getting busted. They are going to the na meetings.
The other day while I was working an old friend came in . She was one of my favorite people years ago. She has a remarkable spirit about her and is tremendously fun to be with. I told her a little about Kyle and she told me that she is bipolar. She told me to tell him the thing that helped her the most was something someone told her. You are not your mind or your body... you are your spirit. She said it made a big difference in her life.
Last week was rather hard. A friend of mine has a friend who had a bipolar son. He shot himself with his dad's hunting gun. He was having trouble with graduation requirements very similiar to Kyle. I am glad Kyle got that accomplished. I am so sorry that we didn't get to have his party. On our way home from picking up our oldest son, he played a John Mayer song Real World. It is about how real life is not like high school. I think it is a great song. He played it for Kyle which I thought was so nice.
