    I've been having these thoughts for quite a while and they're just becoming more and more frequent. When I first started having them, it scared me--I knew that it meant something was wrong and that I shouldn't be having them. Now, these thoughts are comforting to me...Knowing that there is an "escape" if things ever get to be too much makes me feel better. I know that's not normal, but the fact that I think it doesn't scare me anymore; it's normal to me. What scares me is that this might continue to the point where I actually make a plan and do something about it--I never seriously considered it in the past, but now it doesn't seem far off.

    This is where the danger lies, when the thoughts become comforting or even seem blissful (in my own experience), you need to reach out for professional help if you haven't already and if you have they need to try a new approach and look at different ways of helping you.
    I am sorry you are feeling this way and hope things get better.
