I need help!

Posted , 7 users are following.

Currently sitting in an airport having thought of killing myself. They scare the hell out of me... I was in thailand and got sick and decided to end my trip very early. On my way home my anxiety has kicked in and I can't do it anymore I cant seem to find a way to beat it. I am scared of life I dont know how this happened to me. I have no job at home and I just feel everything is dark. I have a loving girlfriend and famly but nothing seems to wwork. Why do I want to die so bad? It makes me cry and really upset how am I supposed to live life like this? I would never act on the thought but Im scared if I feel like this that long that one day I will. I hate the way I feel and I hate my life which makes no sense because I seem to have a good one going for me. I need help.

    Friend... you're not alone. What you're going through is one of the darkest and scariest times in a person's life, not that I need to remind you of that. I'm going through something very similar and believe it or not its all a TRICK anxiety plays on us.

    I'm still learning more about this but I'll try to share with you what I've already learned. To be blunt..... you're overstressed and your brain is hurt. You can't think clearly do to prolonged stress and possible depression. All of this will cause anxiety and what some refer to as "intrusive thoughts". The higher your anxiety goes and the deeper your depression gets, the more intense the thoughts become.

    What you seem to be going through is "Harm OCD".  You claim you don't know how this happened to you but believe it or not you actually do know without realising it. All of this is a build up of worries of not having a job, coupled with worries of the future and how you may support yourself and or your girlfriend if times get tough. You having thoughts of death or ending your life can simply be broken down to the fears you are having over not having a job and worries of being able to support yourself and your loved ones.

    .....those thoughts are an over exaggeration of your fears. You know you wont harm yourself or others for that matter but its hard to let go of those thoughts and fears. You can start by simply not worrying about it. Hard to figure huh ? lol

    Believe it or not its as simple as that. The more you worry about the thoughts, the stronger the thoughts get because worrying about what you may do only validates the irrational thoughts that are going through your overstressed mind. Just let the thoughts pass on through. Don't engage the thoughs, don't try to convince yourself that you'd never do what the thoughts desire you to. Its easier said then done but it works. I'd know....I'm going through it as we speak.

    It may seem impossible to look past these thoughts and trust me it will take time but you'll get over this. You will find work and your worries will no longer have validation BUT what you NEED to do is keep pressing forward somehow. If you stop to worry you wont be able to shake these feelings. You need to keep pressing forward.

    Lastly....you're not going crazy and you're not suicidal. If you love life and you love your loved ones then thats enough proof right there that you're not thinking clearly. You need to find an outlet and possibly seeing a counselor and/or a doctor might also help.
