Depressed and high mood symptoms



Well-known member
Dec 20, 2012
Basically for the last two months I've been in a depression and the psychosis started and hasn't gone away. The last time my mood dropped like this with the voices I landed in hospital. I have bipolar.
This time though I've been having the depression mixed in with symptoms of being high or manic; agitated, no sleep, can't eat, racing thoughts, fast talking, etc except I don't feel on top of the world. The main voice keeps telling me to kill myself and I'm so close giving in. I feel desolate and suicidal but I can't admit it to the mental health professionals. I tell them about everything else but the suicidal plans and thoughts, even though sometimes I desperately want to. I'm not sure why I can't say anything. I don't know what's wrong but I feel so wrong and weird and horrible.
So far all I've had is: we'll talk to so and so next week and see what they say and keep on as you are and I'll see you two weeks. I'm not even sure if I'll be here next week let alone in a fortnight.
If I decided to let them know, how can I word it so that I don't feel like an attention seeker but that they also realise how very serious I am about it and have a few plans in mind?
Thanks, Apzyy xx

I doubt they would think you are attention seeking, but you do need to tell them so that something can be done about this. I would just tell them that i'm struggling with thoughts of suicide, rather than saying i want to kill myself, that way you are making it clear that you are taking responsibility for your symptom and not putting pressure on them.
