Bipolar and Suicidal Thinking

I have written a post with an NLP technique for overcoming negative thinking that may you may find helpful. If you found that useful, you may also like to read the post coping with suicidal thoughts.

In a previous profession i have dealt with sudden deaths and suicides and even lost a very good friend, who took his life in the depths of depression. I miss him dearly.

I have often heard people say, that such individuals are cowards or selfish deeply disturbing. Unless you have been there, i would suggest that those with such a view point are unaware of the EXTREME mental pain and anguish that the person in that situation seeks to stop…

Suicide, sometimes being the ultimate bringer of peace to such mental pain and anguish. Leaving a void of sadness to those left behind. I personally was never one to seek help. Not a good strategy looking back on things.

Please stay safe, and speak to someone who can help, if suicidal ideology becomes part of your thinking process.


I wrote the following during some of my more challenging times. It gives an insight into the duality of the condition.
