Default Re: Suicide Discussion Thread - TRIGGER!

I've always struggled at times with Suicidal thinking, Its just part of my particular Bipolar soup. Most days its a passing thought, Other times when I am not doing well I need to pull out my safety plan and work the steps and hurdles and reach out for help...

My T asks the same questions per the companies policy if I have wanted to go to sleep and not wake up , Have I thought of ending things and if so how ? and do I plan to carry that out..

My husband has been very sick for a month now... When I talked to my T 2 weeks ago, he asks me the questions.. Reality hit me .. I do not have the "luxury" of thinking about suicide anymore, When I would either get shoved into a situational hopeless place or my chronic pain had me once again thinking .... Why ? what is the point of getting up each day..

I cant day dream that I no longer exist, or not have chronic pain that is so bad it hurts to breath, I cant escape into that place that often honestly is comforting, knowing I can pick and choose to stay or go.. the "thinking" was a coping skill and now its been ripped away from me...

This is something I need to talk to my T about....

You have a tremendous amount of stress, pain, grief/sadness to cope with every single day. You've been doing an outstanding job. There comes a time when we all can use more support.

I fully intend to be here for you.

I need these thoughts to stop. I feel like my brain is working against me. I need to quiet it.

Once in my life, living much more depressed than I am now, suicide was a regular consideration. Now, I am older, wiser, stronger and a better me, and even though I struggle with my life, my goals and my dreams, I now know that the sun will rise and tomorrow will be a new day. I know this seems silly but giving yourself one more day makes a world of difference. Please keep on keepin’ on and live life the way you intend to live it.

Crook is your punching bag still helpful? I wish I had a trick to get rid of the thoughts but I have learned to live with it, I think it, I acknowledge it and I think of something I can do physically.. Usually for me its cleaning..

Maybe you can acknowledge it and say Ok this is how I feel right now but tomorrow its likely to change.

Do you have any plans for the weekend? Yes things are so different with Covid but having something to look forward too helps

Crook ... Maybe just taking a walk could help? Change up your scenery? I know you have Kids are there any games you can play with them to get your out of your own head? I dont know where you live , but its hot as hell here in TN, If I had kids I'd likely be outside playing in the sprinklers or water hose...

Hope the Med side effects go away quickly
