Storyboard Text

  • I'm just so confused.. I feel helpless.
  • Lilly?
  • Why didn't tell me you were struggling this badly before it got to be too much?
  • I'm so tired of fighting, I don't know what else to do!
  • We are going to provide you with the support that you need.
  • Lilly has been depressed for months due to her bipolar disorder getting worse for unknown reasons, and she has been pondering assisted suicide because she believes that it will be an easy fix, and anything is better than her suffering as of now.
  • It's going to be okay honey. 
  • Lilly's mother, Diane, comes home from work and has an urge to check on her daughter. As she stops at Lilly's door, she hears loud music playing, and under the music she hears soft crying. 
  • It feels amazing to talk to you!
  • I will always be here to help.
  • Diana comes into Lilly's room to find her sobbing, and rushes to her to comfort her. Lilly tells Diana how hard life has been and how it is becoming so unbearable that she isn't sure if life is still worth living. Diana is horrified to hear that Lilly has been suffering this badly, and immediately tells her that assisted suicide is not the way. She then tells her that it should only be available  to people with terminal illnesses.
  • Soon after, Diana, Lilly, and her father, William, have a long talk about Lilly's disorder and about what can be done to improve it, and in conclusion they find that it is best to have Lilly try therapy with a counselor, and even possibly medication to manage her emotions.
  • After Lilly talks with her parents, a few weeks later she goes to her appointment to see her new psychiatrist; there she gets to say exactly what is on her mind, and is told numerous different ways to help herself when her bipolar disorder becomes too much to handle.
  • Lilly now has her disorder under control and is getting used to it; her relationship with her parents is growing, and she is growing as a person as well. Every now and then the thought still scares Lilly; she was willing to end her life with assisted suicide instead of simply getting help. Why end your life over a solution that can be fixed?
