My reference was an old photo of me. At least how I remember it. It's the only picture of me at that age that I know of. It shows up from time to time, usually when I clear out junk drawers and such, but Its been years now since I've seen it. I don't recall having it taken, I'm guessing I was about five years old, but it was Easter. I never gave much thought to how sad I looked in that picture until I had children of my own. I have photos of them crying, pouting, mad, but at some point I realized, never did they have the sad kind of look as I had in that picture. I was not a happy child and that sadness has followed me all of my life. I've struggled with bipolar depression always. The picture is significant because I can see the sadness in my face, even at such a young age. Life is good now, though that sadness, it still pops up from time to time. Nothing I can't handle!
