Reasons for living never come cheap
Even your best ones can put me to sleep
What I am saying, or trying to say
Is that there must be a better way …
~ Duncan Sheik
I have bipolar II disorder, which means the depressive side is far more prominent than the manic one.
Recently, when I mentioned my suicidal ideation to my psychiatrist, he challenged me to come up with five reasons to live, write them down and put them where I could see them.
