    Whenever I go to bed, any little thing that I did wrong during the day warrants me to think about suicide, plan it. I have nightmares where I kill myself.

    Its like that Gary Joules song "Mad World" "The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I ever had." I think I dream of those things for some reason because they are so evocative. I like the bitterness I like the way it makes me feel. I think I'm drawn by the tragedy of it, its a form of self pity or something. I just think about the saddest things that could possibly happen to me over and over. It's something I'm doing to myself. It's like an addiction to this type of thinking. I'm diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, like schizoaffective and schizophrenia there's this kind of negative affirmation thing going on. Where they hear others say things like creep or "kill yourself" I just tell it mentally in my head. I wonder if it is possible to learn how to become mentally ill. I believe it can be taught, not that you would ever want to learn how to do such a thing, but it might give insight to the illness.

    Its like a kind of masochism, where the person is drawn by the darkness the bitterness, as opposed to being repulsed by it. The person doesn't ever talk about what is really bothering them.

    I told my mother I was planning to kill myself. Because it was affecting me so much running this company that I knew if I didn't tell someone I wouldn't be able to do a good job. I still have thoughts and dreams but they aren't as frequent or as intense.

    I remember when I first fell ill, I had been publicly humiliated when I was 13. I had an out-of-body experience and I started going inwards thinking about what happened over and over, I remember trying to feel what I felt. I remember trying to give myself another out-of-body experience. Then shortly after I began to fantasize about killing myself. All because I didn't feel comfortable talking to anyone - not even my mother. I held it in for almost 10 years before telling anyone of the experience.

    I hope that you feeling comfortable talking to someone now about what is happening inside your mind. Your doctor will understand and not judge you. I understand in that i have many family members that have the same illness as you and i see their struggles and at times my heart aches for them. With right medication you can move forward you can get those thoughts to become less controlling really and you can slowly improve . The thing is you have to keep open conversation with your health professionals so they can help you ok I hear you and i hope you continue to talk about things here ok people do not judge here
