From where I am standing, I can see no good reason for anyone to end their life as many people along with me are hurting deeply as a result of it. The sufferers of the illness have a different perspective on it and rightly so. Today I shall share this post by one of my dear virtual friends who suffers with Bipolar and is a very bright star, bringing light into many lives. Thank you my friend. xxx
The trigger warning is (obviously) in the title.
You know how people write posts with admonitions against suicide and lists of resources? Those posts are valuable, but this isn’t one of them. It’s basically just my thoughts about it all in general, plus a whole heap of questions. You should definitely avoid this post if suicide is a painful trigger, but for the rest of the world, suicide should not be taboo. There’s little hope of preventing it if the reaction to it is fear, anger or evasion. I intend to play devil’s advocate as far as possible.
