Suicidal but am I depressed? - May 1st 2011, 06:20 PM

I'm confused. I don't think I'm depressed because sometimes I'm happy. But even when I'm happy I want to kill myself. I'm obsessed with dying. The only things that are stopping me are my fear of not dying. As in, people finding me, still being alive and having to deal with life and people being mad.

I don't understand why I feel this way because I'm so obviously not depressed. I mean, there are times when I feel like I am depressed, and I self harm as well, but I don't usually have sadness. I feel empty. I'm here laughing and talking and stuff, but inside, past the happiness that's inside as well (I'm not just putting it on for other people) I'm detached from it all and I want to die.

I really don't get it. I don't know what's wrong with me.

Depression isn't just sadness. Anger, Emptiness, thinking things are pointless, boredom, ect are all signs of depression.
I would think that yes, you are suffering from depression.
Seeking help seems wise at this point.

It's definitely possible for you to still have Depression. Keep in mind, Depression doesn't imply that you're ALWAYS Depressed, especially if it's a milder form of Depression. It means you have bad Depressive episodes, but you can have moments where you feel happy as well.

Have you considered talking to a counselor? Therapist?

Thanks. I'm going to try and see a counselor in the coming week, although I'm pretty bad at talking to people and I've tried counseling before so I'm not sure how much good it'll do.

Well, let me give you a tip. If you're nervous to talk, then write! When I saw a counselor before, I was scared to talk. I couldn't bring myself to speak. So, I meekly asked for a pen and paper, and the counselor was really nice about it. I answered everything in writing, including why I was there, and any other questions that were asked.

I wish you the best.

I think the abover poster made a good point, try writing it down and showing them what you write.. Then over time you will feel more comfortable to talk to her.. Good luck..
