Description
This is a mental awareness bracelet, specifically a bipolar awareness bracelet. Please wear this proudly to support those with mental health disorders such as bipolar disease and HOPE for happiness. Today, the 26th of February, we recognized a life cut way too short, yet also celebrated that life and alll the magical moments of fun,experience, and laughter she brought to us. One look into her beautiful brown eyes and you could see straight through into one of the purest souls I've ever had the priveledge of knowing.

Rosemary worked in the veterinary nursing emergency and critical care profession. She fought for what she believed in, didn't compromise when she knew she was right, and was someone who's spit-fire attitude helped train countless nurses to become the people we are today. Rosemary, You fought for our rights, you fought for our patients, and you fought for what you believed in, letting no adversary stand in your way; and that, my dear friend, made you one of the best nurses ever seen in this world.

On January 12th, 2011, you left us behind. And while the depth of heartache has *yet* to fully sink in, we are *sure* you are now at peace; the burden has finally been lifted, and we see now that God has embraced you into his arms and even now you watch over us.

Please know that your beloved Frannie and Leo (her dog and cat) will be taken care of, and may your final rest be a peaceful one. You have lived a long, long road of suffering with bipolar depression. Many highs, many lows, and many challenges. The end has come and I pray that peace finally encompasses you, as you emcompass our hearts. I love you forever and always.

Your friend Forever,
Steph

"I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Tell the world I'm coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits
And they've all forgive my mistakes
Back to where I belong, I've never felt so strong
This is my story,This is my song
Tell the world I'm coming Home."- Nelly

I have several loved ones who are bi-polar. It is a very misunderstood disease that needs others to do just as you have. Bring it out into the open....insist on loved ones getting help and standing beside them all the way.

I'm doing what i can through the help of a good new AMAZING friend who does nothihng but raise HOPE for happiness! through these bracelets as her life's mission - check it out on facebook by adding me as Steph Halczenko and checking out my Pediatric Bipolar Onset Awareness link. Its her life's work. She has been an AMAZING support system through working through my friend's passing.. don't know how i would have made it without her. I trying to spread her message on here a little too.

I'm so sorry for your loss of Denny :( I'll keep posting them until you win one for him honey - i have a limited supply though that was donated in rosemary's memory so I'm helping spread the word by posting her memorial to reach out to people. Apparently this disease touches more lives than I realized. Rosemary and Denny are both at peace now - and we're still picking up the pieces of our broken hearts and move on towards healing.. HOPE for happiness!

This is maybe the best auction I have ever seen. I wish I did not run out of credits. Steph will you put something on Facebook so I can always have it? I can always go back and look at it when I want to. The auction page will go away. The people on this page who have "come out" as having Bipolar are very brave, given the awful stigma of this kind of mental illness.

what a beautiful tribute to a wonderful person. You are a very caring friend. Wish I had enough credits to bid, but won't until tomorrow. I'll watch for the next one.

I also have bipolar and there are so many misconceptions about it. People like to kid theirselves and say there isnt the stigma attached to mental illness but there really is still alot of discrimination involved. She was lucky to have such a supportive friend.

thank you tat2... there ARE many misconceptions and those need to stop - BPD is an illness like any other and can be treated like any other illness - just different people respond to different things. Thank you all for being aware that there is a HOPE for happiness out there!
