Hope brings nothing except pain. The western concept of hope is merely wishful thinking precluding action. Action is the only option that produces results. I've had suicidal ideation since age 12. Now at age 51, having no energy left for action, suicide is the default option. I'm composing a letter to my 10 year old daughter; topical suggestions from those who have lost a parent to suicide are welcomed.

My first attempt was when I was in 8th grade, cutting just wasn't enough for me. I had given up all hope on every being able to keep going in life and it just got worse and I decided one day I had enough and I tried to end it all. I've been fighting with bipolar depression and suicide for 7 years now.
