My Best Friend has Cancer

Hi Bloggers: C is my best friend. We are best friends because we are nice to each other and we have the same color hair. We met in 1st grade but I moved. Then this year in 4th grade we were in the same class together. C was in my special class because she has cancer. I feel sad that she has cancer. When she gets sick I get scared that something bad might happen. I miss her because she is in school and I do home schooling. She will be home schooling soon too because she will be starting chemo therapy. It might make her hair fall out. I will cheer her up by singing her songs and writing her nice letters. I will visit her and see how she is doing. I don't care if her hair falls out because I am her best friend.
In first grade we always went on the monkey bars together and we always talked together.
She wrote me a letter and it said"I miss you J". And I wrote her a letter back, it said "I miss you too, C."
Readers, will you say a prayer for my friend C? Please ask God to help my friend, keep her from being scared and help her get better.

Mommylebron here: The words above are directly from LeBella. If you are one of my followers you may remember the post I wrote about this. I am glad that I encouraged the friendship to grow and pray that C makes a full recovery and these little girls can grow up together in the way BFF's should.

Book Review: Babysitters Litte Sister #2 Karen's Roller Skates

Today I read Baby-Sitters Little Sister #2 Karens' Roller Skates. I liked it so much! It was good. It was really sad . The little girl, Karen, who was 6 years old got hurt really bad. She was skating and she fell when jumping over two cans. She had to go to the hospital because she broke her arm so very bad! My most favorite part was when she was happy because the witch next door signed her cast, I was happy too.
I give this book 4 LeBella's Rainbows:

Since I got off of one of my medicine I felt happy. I felt so happy that I could cry. My medicine is helping my brain. My meds makes me sleep. What do you think? I eat too much yum! I have a dog his name is shadow. He is tan-ish. He is a pitbull. Is he not? Well, it was a long time ago daddy’s friend came with a dog. He said we could have him. I thought he was a girl, but now I know he is a boy. He is furry like a wolf. I love him. He is cool. He can jump really high. Can you jump really high? The end .
I am doing a pajama project. It is called: “Sweet Dreams, Pajamas4Patients”. It is about caring and helping kids in the hospitals. Because they have bipolar disorder like me! Do you have it like me? Kids like me and you are bad and good. Are you both? Wow, wow! Sometimes I am bad because I have too much stuff in my brain and I make bad choices. Sometime I am good because I give hugs and kisses and play nicely. Do you play nicely?
Dear Children in the Hospital,
I am collecting and pajamas and blankets for you! I love helping people kids and adults plus teen agrees. Long ago there was a girl named Jasmeen she was bipolar she was very, very sad because she had no body to play with. She was very lonely and sad. She is funny. She is nice and shy. She is mommyish. She Is ME!! Thank you!

Blog Bash '10

My name is LeBella (well that's my blog name). I take medicine because my brain needs some extra stuff (LeBella has Bipolar Disorder). I have two brothers sometimes make me feel claustrophobic and mad. I love my Mommy and Daddy. I love to tell stories. I'm planning a Pajama Project. I will be collecting pajama sets for kids at the local children's hospital. I'm calling my "Pajama Project". I like dolphins, and lizards, and frogs. I am going into 4th grade this year and I'm so excited and happy because I was supposed to repeat 3rd grade but my FCAT scores were very high!

1. Why do you blog?
Because it is fun and easy. And because I want to help moms understand their kids who have bipolar disorder like me.
2. What do you blog about?
I blog about my feelings and my family. I plan to blog about my life and school.
3. What do you find to be the biggest reward you get from blogging?
I get to spend time with Mommy at the library.
4. How long have you been blogging?
This is my third week.
5. Let's hear the story behind your title.
Because colors and feelings go together, I have a lot of feelings, they make a rainbow.

I wanna be a Princess

My friends A and M have dress-up clothes that are princess dresses and Halloween dresses. I wanted those dresses when I saw them in Walmart. I couldn't get them because they were too small. I'm too big because my medicine makes me eat too much. My mommy tried to help me not eat too much but I would sneak food when she was sleeping. I wouldn't think if was bad or not til I finished then I felt bad. I felt sad that I could not wear the dress-up dresses, and that my friends could so ripped one of them so they couldn't wear it. It felt more fair that way. Later I felt bad. I talked to mommy and I know tearing m,y friends dress wasn't nice and it's not their fault the dress didn't fit.
Now I'm losing weight cuz I stopped taking one of medicines. I had too stop it because it wanted to make trouble for my liver. I feel happy, happy, happy that I'm losing weight. Mommy is nervous that I'm losing to much fastly. Now she makes me eat stuff!
I try to eat healthy foods every day.
My mommy and daddy call me "princess" everyday...but I still want the dresses....

These are LeBella's words. I give her whatever support she asks of me but I do not rewrite her words. By allowing her to tell you her story I am learning more and more how my daughter's mind processes everything she deals with. This knowledge is invaluable in helping her cope with Bipolar Disorder. This blog is also a strong representation of LeBella's progress. For a very long time she was ashamed of her disorder. She would hide from company while taking her meds and would shush me, red faced when I would take about anything bipolar related to others. Now she is ready to share with the world. It's a very big deal!

How I Feel About Rainbows

I'm very proud to introduce my 9 year old daughter, LeBella, to ya'll! She wants to share with everyone what it's like to be a child with Bipolar Disorder. We relate the many moods and feelings she experiences to all the colors of the rainbow. For her first post she wants to share her rainbow of feelings......
Red feels like a mad color. Some things that make me mad are: when my brothers take stuff from me, when I can't find something I want, when I mess up drawing pictures. When I'm mad I lay in my bed and cry, I break things (but I always feel bad later).
Green feels like a happy color. Some things that make me happy are: when my daddy gives me candy and ice cream, when my family gives me love, making friends. When I'm happy I smile and I'm nice.
Blue feels like a sad color. Some things that make me sad are: when someone yells at me or uses a very serious voice, sad books, driving pass graveyards, looking a pictures from Haiti, dead fish in the tanks at Walmart. When I'm sad I cry, my heart feels heavy in my chest, I have a hard time breathing.
Yellow feels like an excited color! Some things that make me excited are: My Pajama Project (more info later), getting ready for our Big Move, reading! When I'm excited I talk really, really fast, I'm real fidgety and bounce all around!
The color purple feels like a calm color. Some things that make me feel calm are sitting with a book, taking a shower, enjoying nature, and music. When I'm calm I take deep breathes and I can think better.

**How do you feel today?**

Be sure to visit my mommy for Bipolar Tuesday!
