Bipolar and Suicidal Thoughts


I want to talk about a sensitive subject today: bipolar and suicidal thoughts. Suicidal thoughts are always present when living with bipolar disorder. However, it doesn't necessarily mean you are looking to act on those thoughts. They’re just present; especially during periods of depression. When you are in a deep depression, you feel very distant and disconnected. It feels like you are physically ill and just slowly withering away. I believe this partly contributes to suicidal thoughts.
