Just wanted your opinions on something. I had an idea a little while ago about putting together a memory box for my little boy - during my depressive bouts I get suicidal very quickly and my biggest worry is always that I will do it and leave my little boy without a mum. I thought about putting together a box with pictures of my friends, contact details, stories about things we did and so on, so that if I did kill myself and he wanted to know more about me when he was older he'd be able to track people down and get to know them. I mentioned this to my psychiatric nurse who said I was being very pessimistic and that I shouldn't think that way, I'm stable, the meds are working etc and that negative thinking would drag me back down. I thought I was just being practical? I'd be interested to know what other people think?
I like the idea too! I always wished my parents cared enough to put together some type of family thing for me. Good luck! I think he will appreciate it down the road. btw, I am glad you are feeling good! Love, Lori
