Eeyore And Tigger Are Polar Opposites, And I See Myself In Both!

    One of the first things people ask me when they come to my home for the first time is, "Do you have kids or grand kids living at home?" and I just laugh because I know "why" they are asking. I have a HUGE Eeyore and Tigger collection that FILLS my bedroom from top to bottom - from curtains and linen to figurines, books and stuffies! I just love them...how they are exact opposites, but best of friends.

    I see myself in them - Tigger as my manic, bouncy, "me-against-the-world" self and Eeyore as the depressive, can't-do-anything-right, why bother side. It took a long time for me to be able to see, and then accept, that both of these "characters" live inside of me and that they have to co-exist. Eeyore and Tigger are like my own personal poster children, helping me to remember that life is for living and enjoying and wvwn though I am a rapid cycling bi-polar,  it's okay to be my true self!
