Reasons you DON'T want to die, whether deliberately or not...

Hello

I am currently working on a suicide prevention/crisis plan. One of the questions are 'what are your reasons for living', I really have no idea and can't think of any and have said this to my worker.

I wondered what other ASD/AS people's answer would be to this.

If you can, a sentence or two written would be welcome.

Thanks

  • Despite the Aspergers Syndrome, anxiety and OCD I actually enjoy my life. I'm in my 20s and feel that I enjoy and treasure every second of this beautiful gift of life we have.

    I like the little things in life.

    I like hearing birds chirping to one another.

    I like seeing the leaves and flowers growing at the start of spring.

    I like seeing children play in the park, completely innocent and having the fun that we all enjoyed at that age.

    I like listening to records and music, still find it amazing that music can actually make me feel raw emotions depending on what I listen to. My mum was a big fan of Elvis so it was natural I'd get a lot of Elvis records for my birthday.

    I like being there for my parents and family, making them happy and being there for them when I can.

    Sure I can get down sometimes but I always find a reason, every day to be happy and love myself. Today I saw a beautiful Robin and that really made me smile.
