All of a sudden Benny began to see the beauty all around
him.....birds, flowers, and butterflies were all around and for the first
time in his young life Benny felt the pleasure of enjoying the gorgeous
sounds, smells and objects.
Yes, Benny has Bipolar Disorder but he has already
learned that it can be controlled, and he can be the sweet lovable puppy
that everyone always wanted him to be...and how he wanted to be...and
|Benny was so happy to be
home. Even little things like the birds in the trees were exciting
for him because for so long he was unable to enjoy anything because of the
bad feelings inside of himself. Benny's mother came with him to the
school to explain to Benny's teacher and principal that Benny had Bipolar
Disorder, and told them how important it was he take his medicine on time.
Mrs Dalmay told them the medicine did not cure the illness, but controlled
it, and she compared it to a diabetic taking insulin.
