Guys I'm not suicidal at all but I keep thinking about it. I could just be drinking a cup of tea and solving a sudoku puzzle when suddenly I think about committing suicide in very vivid detail. Does anyone else have this? How do you handle it?? It's making me feel insane.

hi i sort of get the same thing at times usually when im feeling very distressed or overwhelmed or i have a lot going on
i was wondering if you had a diagnosis as BPD can feel suicidal as one of the symptoms

Thanks for the advice!
My mom thinks I have BPD, but I don't really think so because I never feel ecstatic like many describe.
Anyway, what's the likelihood of me having EDNOS, anxiety, OCD, AND BPD?

I have a similar issue. I’ve been having a lot of intrusive thoughts about the idea of doing it and how I would do it, but I don’t necessarily feel like doing it. I feel like I just get depressed and I think of an escape and suicide sometimes feels like something I should keep as an option if my fears of impending doom become reality. It sucks and it really hurts the positive energy of the day.
