Feeling very suicidal

I've been very suicidal recently for the first time in years. It partly has to do with having an eating disorder. But also because I have become very depressed, feeling like I'm not worth anything and don't see the point. I go from not eating for long periods of time to eating too much. I can't get out of bed. I barely have the motivation to do basic things like get dressed. I've thought about getting a counsellor but again I don't see the point as I don't think there's any solution. I don't see the point in living anymore. I also want to get counselling just to have someone to talk to about these things to get it off my chest as I don't want to dump all my problems on my friends. Is it worth it getting a counsellor just to be able to talk about these things even though I don't have any intentions to stop feeling suicidal?

Lovely, there will come a time and a place when you will inadvertently feel non-suicidal, you will not even realize it, that time will come. Maybe let us know what exactly is bothering you most? It helps us to be able to offer some advice.

Hi Michille are you getting any professional help. Because it sounds as if you should see yourGP and then they can put you forward to the right kind of therapy or medication. But if it does get worse phone 111 and tell them. They usually have a on call psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse that could help. And if you need to get yourself down to A&E :hug:

Yes, there will come a time when you are not feeling suicidal if you hang in there. Getting a counselor is a good idea. Someone to who you can vent. Are you taking any medications? It sounds like you need help.
