Depression and Suicide  
As The Bloggess has reminded me, today is World Suicide Prevention Day. I don't know if any of you have ever been to that terrible place where suicide starts to seem like an option. I hope you haven't. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. So I am asking, as the Bloggess did, what keeps you going? What gets you out of bed? What's your mantra?
Mine's going to end up tattooed on me somewhere: Just keep swimming.

EDIT: Also, this:
“You know what gives me the courage to keep on living? The courage to love myself a little? It’s having a whole bunch of friends who really give a goddamn. When you share pain, there’s less of it, and when you share joy, there’s more of it. That’s a basic fact of the universe.”

EDIT2: If you need a laugh, watch this. Like 10 times over.
