I lost my best friend
by Maryssa Maynard
I lost my best friend on December 9, 2010 and I was 15 years old. My Mom had diabetes my whole life, but was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a few months before she passed. When I found out she had bipolar disorder, I barely talked to her after that. I felt like I was losing a best friend, and I didn’t want that to happen. A month before she passed away I tried to gain my relationship back with her because I knew I still had a lot of time, but I guess I was wrong. When she passed away I didn’t know what to feel or how to feel. I am 17 years old now, and am still grieving, but I just want it to end.
