being sucidial is real now - September 23rd 2017, 12:07 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I have definately been sad and even depressed over the past couple of years, but it hasn't gotten to a point where I am sucidial. But recently I have been thinking about suicide more and more, which scares me. I h
feel so worthlesss that I don't even think living is for me anymore. Everytime I thought of suicide in the past (very few times for a very short time), I always said I wouldn't do it because I didn't want to hurt my friends or family, but now, I don't even care about their feelings. It scares me a lot how much I want to be gone, and how unsympathetic I am about it.

I do I get rid of these thoughts? Is that even something that can happen?

I've been there many times.

Having thoughts about it, I think they call it "suicidal ideation". Thoughts don't necessarily mean action. I've found it's OK to tell my psychiatrist when I'm having those thoughts. She knows I won't actually do it.

(Heck if I actually wanted to do it, I wouldn't be telling anyone about it now would I?)

And it's so weird how for me those thoughts can be present one day, and a few days later I'm fine, and not thinking those thoughts anymore. Very weird. Like the whole world changes, from a dark stinky sucky place, to a bright wonderful happy place full of rainbows. It's the same place!

At least I know those thoughts are only temporary, and if I ride it out they will eventually go away.

Plus I tell my psychiatrist doctor. She may want to try me on a different medication.

Now that I've found the medication that works for me, it's much easier now. She may increase my medication for a while, or try adding something else to help out. It's kind of a guessing game, but psychiatrist doctors specialize in this guessing.

Most important is to have hope, that you won't have to live like this forever. There are medications that can do wonders. Unfortunately finding the one that works for you may take a bit of trying different ones to see what happens. There are a lot to choose from, so likely there's one that will work for you.

And in the meantime, when I'm depressed (like just last weekend, which was horrible, for no apparent reason, and now I'm fine, for no apparent reason), I have a couple friends I can turn to, and be with, and that helps me a lot. (Oh, plus I have them take me on a walk (sounds like I'm a dog) and we go walking, and that little bit of exercise seems to make me feel better the next day.)

Anyway I found it's OK to tell people how I feel, at least the ones who understand. (I may need to tell others what to do if they don't know and are too timid to ask. It's usually a simple "I just need to be with someone right now.")

Hey there,

I once felt a surge of emotions rushing up my brain when I almost lost control of myself. I had a pretty bad argument with my girlfriend and we almost broke up that day. I wanted to jump off from a building but just as my body was on the railing itself, I only realised that I wanted to escape from all the problems I am facing and that was when I had come to my senses, to know suicidal does not solve anything and I'd be a coward if I had did that.

Instead, I tried to calm myself down, give myself some time alone to think and tried to think of practical solutions that would hep me. Eventually it all worked out just fine.
