Hi, my name is Debra. I've been living with bipolar disorder since I was a teenager. Last year, my father died and I had the worst episodes of depression and mania I'd ever had. All I wanted to do was die. I still feel that way on some days. Long story short, I ended up on SSDI, unable to work. This year I decided I wanted to change my life and try to start giving to the community, even though at the moment it feels I have nothing to give. Thanks for reading and wish me luck!

I received a gift that really touched me. The woman who lives next door to me speaks Spanish and I speak English. We've exchanged smiles but haven't been able to go much beyond that. I take a medicine that makes my hands tremble. It's hard for me to get the trash out to the dumpster. About a week ago I was trying to lift a heavy bag while controlling the shaking in my hands. The woman next door saw me from her window and rushed out to take the bag from me. I tried to tell her she didn't need to do that, but she was insistent and carried the bag to the dumpster. I thanked her both in English and the few words of Spanish I know. She just smiled, put a hand on my shoulder, and said, "It was the right thing to do." I hope I remember her kindness the next time I see someone struggling physically or emotionally.

That is wonderful. We can all be inspired when we know something is "the right thing to do." :)
