    I've been okay since January. No attempts, no cutting, no bad thoughts, nothing. But now I'm getting these overwhelming thoughts about cutting and going deep enough to die. I did cut, not deep enough, but enough to run out of bandaids when I was cleaning them afterwards. But these thoughts are taking over and I don't want to die, but I keep making plans. There's so much I want to do, and I never want to be in a hospital again, and...and...I'm scared.

    I make plans even when I don't really want to die also.
    Remember that you don't really want to die when you get those thoughts. That they are just thoughts.

    You have to try and block those thoughts of suicide out of your minds Nicothodes. You sound like you really want to live, but have a hard time dealing with the suicidal thoughts. And you have to regain control and stop cutting yourself. I know it's very hard, but you have to stop. :hug:

    work on the reasons why you cut first, then resolve those reasons, then proactively go forward in life

    Do you see a therapist or anyone professional?
    Try to occupy your mind and also find out if there is any particular reason you feel this way.

    I was seeing a therapist and a psychiatrist, but I just moved into college, 6 hours away from my doctors.

    Does the college have any supporting body's to help? I'm aware that at universities they have councilors, etc.
