Suicidal thoughts

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've been depressed for over 3 years. For the last 8 weeks I've been up and down but constantly lingering are these suicidal thoughts, to start with I promised myself I wouldn't act on them but now I see no other way out, I just need all this pain and crippling anxiety to stop. I had just started mirtazapiene so I thought it was these tablets making me feel worse, I'm now on fluoxetine and I feel no different. I need help!! I'm at my whits end !!

    There is no magic pill I wish there was. Some are better than others but most just numb. Keep promising yourself that you will not harm   Even if it is only day by day.  Do you have someone you can talk to? Reach out for help even to a stranger. I am listening.

    No it's not the way out. Have you tried everything? Medication, cbt Therapy, omega fish, L-theanine, B complex supplements, breathing exercises, yoga, exercise, go for a walk when feeling stressed or nervous. Try to breathe and don't focus on your thoughts distract yourself. Perhaps turn on the music and start dancing lol. I know this sounds weird. But I have done it when I was feeling stressed and it did work. Try to push yourself, motivate yourself. Change those thoughts into positive ones. They are not helping you. Don't listen to them. Wish you all the best! Don't do it. It is never the solution to our problems. I've been tired too but I always ended up regretting what I did later on. Give it a day. Then tomorrow do the same and so forth until maybe very soon you will be a little better. Take Care💕💖💖🙏🙌💖💖

    Hi rebecca 00787

    You still have us here ready to listen your stories. Mirtazapiene, fluoxetine and other tablets involved are just some parts that help you feel better. I want to recomend you that 'Exercising' is very powerful way that can refresh you, and it also make you healthy. You can break suicidal thoughts. I believe <3

    Hey <3

    I'm sorry if i sound a bit harsh...my words usually don't work with me when it matters, but please bear with me.

    I watched a TedTalk on suicide the other day and the speaker explained how his mind seemed to shrink whenever he was thinking of suicide...like suicide became the only thing he could think of in those moments. I've never heard anyone explain depression that well.

    Reading your post, however, I realised that even though suicidal thoughts are extremely powerful and can feel like they're consuming your whole being, they're thoughts just like the others that pass through your mind...only these have your emotions attatched to them. I hope this makes sense?

    Even though we can't control our emotions, we can control our thoughts. If you can't think anything positive, just lay or sit still for a few moments and focus on breathing. As suicidal thoughts are thoughts, they will pass eventually.

    If these thoughts keep coming back, ask yourself what really causes your depression and then focus on that...not the way it makes you feel, not the thoughts it makes you think involuntarily. I know it's easier said than done, but if sorting out the root of your depression is going to make you feel even a little more alive, i'd say it's worth it.

    Sorry for the essay... I hope it helps.
