Would my GP do the same thing if I told him I was likely to act on my thoughts/plans? If I had all the answers planned out, how, what and where, just then when left to answer?You really need to talk to a trained therapist about this. When we're descending into depression, our thought processes become confused and jumbled-it's difficult to determine when thoughts about suicide transition from simply thinking that non-existence would be preferable to our miserable state and actually moving in that direction. You need a rational, trained person to make that assessment, because we are not rational when we're deeply depressed.
I had a Psychiatrist admit me to hospital during a medication review-she asked me pointedly what my thoughts of suicide were and I responded '50/50'. With that response she told me 'You are going to be admitted to Hospital for observation and I don't require your permission to do it.'. And she was ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, in my depressive state I had ceased thinking rationally and was subject to emotional forces far beyond my control.
Please consult a trained professional and let them make that assessment. It saved my life, I very easily could have taken my own life 5 years ago when this all transpired-and I thank my lucky stars today that someone stepped into my life and made decisions for me when doing that for myself was far beyond me. We need people in our lives like that, because sooner or later we all have emotional crisis that are beyond our control. Trust me.
