Impulsive Overdoses and Suicidal Thoughts - May 17th 2011, 09:23 PM

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

So it's not exactly about suicide... okay well maybe it is...
But it's not that I want to commit suicide, it's just the thoughts.
They are constantly there in the back of my mind.

Overdosing
Cutting too deep
Bleeding myself dry
Hanging
Drowning
Jumping


I don't understand why all of this is going off in my head?

Sometimes I OD. It's just something I do and then I regret it and end up throwing the pills back up pretty quickly.

I just don't get it.

I am going through the same exact thing. I am constantly thinking of suicide (What I'd do. How I'd do it. When and where.) . It doesn't make any sense to me either. I know for sure that I do not want to die, yet when I'm feeling down, (which is almost always), that is all I can think about.
I'm sorry I don't really have any advice for you, but I do know that I am going through something similar and I hope that I can soon figure it out.

well i have that feeling to its just the stress and all the things going on and i do that to i overdose and then feel regret wanting to die but i really dont want to you just have to try to ignore them and stay strong push those thoughts away and keep the positive ones there good luck feel free to pm me hun




Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with

Yourself.

Iím catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.

It's nice to know that other people are going through the same thing!
But has no one got any idea why it happens? :/

Also has anyone here ever ended up in hospital for attempted suicide?

And what do you mean by an 'addiction' Megan?

Hey Charli.

I am sorry to hear you are feeling like this. I sometimes get impulsive thoughts to take an overdose, which can be really strong and hard to manage. But you have to think that these urges do pass and you will feel a little better. I know just at the time it can feel impossible and like you are never going to feel any different. But sometimes half an hour or so later you can feel a bit better and think you are glad you didn't take the overdose. It is just about getting through that difficult time and keeping yourself distracted.

I have been in hospital many times for overdoses and it is horrible. You end up feeling really ill and the treatment you have to have is awful! Trust me it really is not worth it. You are worth it though. You will get through this so keep hanging on in there.

Stay strong


Believe
You can do anything you want to
:-)

I've dealt with something similar, although it wasn't exactly the same. I eventually figured out what it was because I was SAFE enough to let my thoughts spiral until I figured out what they were DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU DON'T FEEL SAFE it could lead to another attempt for you. How long have you been having them and can you think of anything that might've triggered them?

Thankyou for all of the replies lovelies! It means a lot to me that you would take the time out of your day
I have been trying to persevere with it and it works most of the time.. But somedays I don't feel better and the impulses stay for longer than they're welcome.

I've been having the thoughts of suicide for around half a year.. Maybe more, but only started to have impulsive Overdoses recently, I'd say for about 2 months.
I can't really think of much that has triggered it... Other than my relationships with family and friends deteriorating.
I don't know whether I'm replacing self harm with these thoughts or not either...
