I've been experiencing suicidal feelings for the past 3 or 4 weeks. I've felt that everything is just too much ... and I just can't cope. I felt this way about 3 years ago, but managed to recover. But these feelings keep coming back - and, at times, overwhelm me. When this happens I feel like today is the day. Somehow, I get over it. I'm not sure how. I'm afraid that - one day - I will simply go ahead and do it. You see, on occasion I don't feel in control of myself - as if I'm on auto-pilot. When that happens, I just do whatever it is I'm doing. If this occurs when I'm feeling suicidal, I'm pretty sure I'll kill myself.
But I'm not writing this post specifically about me.
I'd like to know if anyone has any suggestions or ideas about how to deal with the thoughts and feelings that a person has when feeling seriously suicidal.
Okay - if the person is going to do it, it happens. But for many, suicide doesn't really feel like something they 'want' to do. And, if somehow they could avoid it, they would. But still such people kill themselves - as, at the last moment, they've gone ahead with it rather than stopped themselves.
I'm no expert on this. Not at all. So I may be talking rubbish. My apologies.
But if anyone has ideas or suggestions that might help someone (me included) to overcome last-minute suicidal feelings, please comment.
