I seem to have started overthinking things.

I cling on something that has happened, something that may have happened the day ago, a week ago, even a decade ago.
I start thinking about the incident, something random, like for example something that happened at my wedding 13 years ago. All of a sudden I get absolutely OBSESSED with it. It's things that had no effect on me at the time, but I look back on and can't take it off my mind. Its always something negative.
I struggle to function and it takes over my life. It has come to a point that it gets so intense I feel suicidal. Any ideas?

It has come to a point that it gets so intense I feel suicidal.
It may help to have a look at these two pages on the forum: Suicidal Crisis and Mental Health Forum - Getting Help about what to do if you're feeling suicidal, or if you need emergency help. I hope you can use the forum for support during this difficult time.

If you’re thinking about suicide and are in immediate danger, please call your local emergency number (i.e. in the UK call 999, in the USA or Canada call 911, in Australia call 000 and in New Zealand call 111) or call the international emergency number of 112.

If you have been affected by the contents of this thread and would like to speak to someone about your feelings you can call one of the following helplines:

In the UK and Ireland, the Samaritans can be contacted on 116 123.
In the US, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255.
In Canada, the Suicide Prevention Service on 1.833.456.4566.
In Australia, the crisis support service Lifeline is on 13 11 14.
In New Zealand, the Need to Talk service is on 1737 or 080017371737.
Other international helplines can be found at www.befrienders.org.

Try not to React to these thoughts, try not to Ruminate about these thoughts.If you don't React or Ruminate about them they will die.
I would Recommend watching Videos by Ali Greymond.The very best of Luck.
