Are suicidal thoughts bad or just bad in other peoples eyes? These constant thoughts are really waring me down and feel I will just succumb to them. Thought about ringing the crisis team but they will make things worse and if it in is your mind to do something why tell the world? Its ok putting it on here as you are a million miles away and I just felt i needed to write it down. Thought about starting a journal a while back but as always the nasty words "why" and "whats the point" fly up in my face.
Fear of the future, not coping with present and not getting help to understand my past all add up to one answer!!
sorry to be so depressing

Hi Marchhare

I'm sorry you are not feeling too great. I don't know whether suicidal thoughts are good or bad, but I do think they can get habitual. After years of depression I got into a habit and cycle of suicidal thoughts, even if I wasn't feeling so bad. And of course those suicidal thoughts would bring on those suicidal and depressed feelings and the cycle starts again.

For me I had to really challenge them, sometimes to the point of challenging my low thoughts out loud to try and break that habit of persistent negative thinking. It wasn't easy and of course this is written down much simpler than it is to actually do.

Take care
Sapphire

Sometimes it is real hard to be positive, when there are no positives, depressed people have to have something to look forward to, something going right.

With us, it's like a little thing is a huge mountain to climb, yet when we are feeling relatively normal it really is only an ant hill.

I wish I could tell you how to rid yourself of the thoughts, but I generally find time, and doing something else helps.

I post on forums. You dont have to face people, and you are faceless.

Are there other places where you could post, maybe help in someway with regards what you do in real life
