The afternoon was dedicated to spending time with Athmani, who has suffered from bipolar disorder. Athmani shared his struggles, ups and downs, crushed dreams, lost friendships and hopes in a new environment that understands and accepts the conditions that bipolar disorder puts someone through. His mother, who lives alone with Athmani, prepared us a lovely meal which we shared in their home before sitting down and listening to Athmani's story. His mother followed sharing her perspective and how she has lived through her son's struggles. Athmani's story shows that even if your initial dreams vanish, a renewed direction and focus in life can help build new ideals and hopes. Today, Athmani supports his small household, has hired a helper around the house, and can sometimes buy his mother a gift. Shifting his mindset has allowed him to look forward to a hopeful, brighter future, one step at a time.
