What should I do if I've been having suicidal thoughts with my depression? (besides going to a doctor)

Ive been going to a therapist but its not exactly working. Yesterday I felt so gloomy I tried to drown myself by putting my head in the tub. :/ :( I want to get rid of these suicidal thoughts before i kill myself.

wow. i sure know how you feel. talk to your friends or girlfriend, or boyfriend, and maybe have them sleep over for a bit until this episode is over, or sleep over at thier house, it's a lil safer, cuz you dont know where everything is.

When you are having these thoughts call the National Suicide Prevention hotline. 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

Hate to put it bluntly but think of the effect on the people you care about. As worthless as you may feel please hang in there, pray, talk. The fact you asked in this forum is a cry for help, I will pray for you myself

Philippians 4:6,7 says "do not be anxious over anything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to god; and the peace of god that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus."
I once suffered with bad depression when there is no one to speak to talking to God through prayer really helps. More importantly let him speak to you by getting to know him through reading a bible. I found that clinical depression may not completely go away but it will be relieved a little.

If you tried to drown yourself, I would highly recommend that you go right to the emergency room. If you really do not want to do that most areas have a crisis response you can call and they will get you in as soon as possible to see a psychiatrist. I really sympathize with you I have dealt with depression my whole life. I don't know if you have a supportive family that loves you, I hope you do because when I think about killing myself I try to think about all the people I would be hurting and whatit would do to them. I try to tell myself that I'm stronger than this. I know its hard. Ialso try to think about how many people have it so much worse than me.

Don't feel bad, they're your friends they'll help you. You could try the suicide hotline? Or listen to music. That helps me.

go ahead and think about all of the ppl that wont care if youre dead but after that think of all the ppl that WILL!! even though i dont know you i would honestly feel bad if you were to die :( think about something that just makes you happy for no complete reason then just go ahead and live your life the way you want to :) im not suggesting this at all but whenever im depressed i harm myself but EVERY time i do i feel so dumb afterwards your life is special never forget that and suicide is NEVER the answer and if you ever need someone to talk to im here :) email me whenever : that_one_amazin_gurl@yahoo.com
