    I don't exactly like it. obviously visioning your death is a side effect of depression and I honestly believe that a lot of people that go through severe depression picture their death in detail. Its probably not good but it is likely somewhat common amongst those with depression.

    I do and it brings me peace of knowing that there is a final exit out of this miserable existence. When I just focus on that fact, makes me feel better.

    I do it all the time. I feel guilty daydreaming about ending my life though, because I know I should be thinking about how to improve my life, not end it. If I put as much time into thinking about how to be successful as I do suicide I'd probably be a lot better off and so would anyone. The weird part is I don't feel normal when I'm not fantasizing about ways to off myself, like I've been doing it for long that it's become the norm and contemplating the possibility of living now makes me uncomfortable.

    Yeah I do...sometimes it scares me, sometimes it makes me happy...but it can become very vivid.

    I do it every day. I'll be driving down the street thinking I could just..... Or walking down stairs. Or crossing the street. Anything. It makes me happy to know that if I want to end it that badly, I know how.

    I am very fragile - I understand just how delicate my body is.

    I've been pondering my death since I was in elementary school, suicide or otherwise.

    Some imaginations have been more elaborate (And explicit) then others.

    Some of them have even occurred in my dreams.

    I sometimes wonder if I'm just dreaming that I'm alive...

    I do this; lately, it's been intrusive thoughts doing it, where I either get a flash of image of myself doing it or an impulse to do it or both, and it's usually scary because it'll come out of nowhere. When I'm really depressed, I imagine it, and it can be comforting to know I have a way out if I need it.

    I do it every day and it helps me. Like riv498 said, it calms. It makes me feel strong. I know that I always have the choice. And it reminds me how fragile humans really are, which makes me feel better because I hate it when people act like they control the world. Imagine school, the teachers think they can control the students, if you jump out the window, you prove how wrong they are. The same thing at home, or anywhere else. It gives me a feeling of freedom and strength.

    Recently, I do that all the time. At the moment I can't help but be convinced that nearly everyone in my life would be better off without me, so the fantasies actually have a warm, giving feel. What makes these fantasies really infuriating is the fact that I've committed myself to not dying. The belief that I will kill myself eventually is still there, and there are times when it seems like the only moral thing to do, the only thing that makes sense. So...living with the decision I've made to live isn't easy :/

    WOW Someone actually thinks like I do.My therapist said if I put half the energy into improving my life as I do on suicide, life would be good. But the thought haunt me and feels more normal than thinking about good things.

    I think the reason that contemplating suicide has such a soothing effect is because over time it's become our one and only security blanket (I think of it more as a rag, really). Through isolation that is caused by depression we eventually lose most if not all alternative methods of coping with our problems, and coming out of depression they're extremely difficult to relearn, thus why it's so easy to fall back into depression; because when you lose that thought of anything can be avoided or solved through death you essentially have nothing to fall back on, and suddenly life is more fearful and complicated than ever.

    @Cymbele: I like to think of myself as my own therapist. If you can be analytical about your depression it's likely that no therapist is going to be able to tell you something you haven't already thought of yourself. Not to say they're useless; I sometimes wish I had a therapist just so I had someone to talk to openly, which is really what their main purpose is and in that sense anyone can be a therapist, especially those people who take the time to listen here on SF.

    Only when I'm distracted by something do I not think about it. It just feels normal now and doesn't make me feel guilty at all.

    Lately I've been lying in bed for long periods of time imagining myself dead or living another reality.

    Sometimes it's another planet, sometimes it's how my life would've been if things happened differently 10 years ago.

    I've decided I'm going to do it. I have about four months left.

    Hope this isn't being too much things, but another reality sounds better than being dead. And, another reality CAN happen, honest - as the ad says "It may not happen overnight, but it will happen"....... Listen - I made the biggest mistake of my life 15 years ago..... thinking I was doing the right thing...... but caused some very wrong things, and I really believed that suicide was my only option. Like you said in your other post - the psyche gets involved, and I agree, yes, it does....

    But psyches can also find healing and be healed...... Hope is not a lie. Blessings and strength :reub:
