my cpn once told me most people who have suicidal feelings dont wanto die,but they dont know how to live.
my therapist said a similar thing to me.i would plan my death over and over and keep setting dates and she said it was a back up plan.
i didnt really wanto die but it was how i would cope with living.there would be a way out if things went too badly wrong
i hope you feel better now

This is quite a good Philosophical point by your cpn. It is one that brings a need for a deep thinking session on it, on the don't know how to live point :idea:

Yes, I really understand what you mean. I feel so strongly at the moment that I really want to end things, but sometimes my mood can just 'flip'. It really feels sometimes like I could go home and either kill myself or just make my dinner. Both feel equally possible and logical sometimes. It scares me more when I'm in that frame of mind than when I just feel really low... Hope that made sense.
