I don’t have a lot of the typical characteristics of depression - lack of energy, motivation, etc. But sometimes I sink extremely low and have intense suicidal thoughts. Typically this is sparked by rejection from a girl. The period lasts less than a day and I’m usually bedridden. Does anyone have any practical advice for dealing with this? Would be greatly appreciated

Try engaging your mind with problem solving tasks, or maybe learn about something like teach yourself a new skill you might find you excel at this kind of thing when you are feeling down. Just a suggestion!

If you get the thoughts then you have to quickly change what you might be doing, say like if you are cooking then turn it off and go and sit down in the lounge or where ever in your property and try and think of something positive or something that might make you smile to your self. You have to get the thought to go quickly so a total change of something in that instant might snap us out of it.

Yes try counting 10 things you are grateful for, doesn't matter how small they are.
