  1. Thinking. Always thinking. It never stops. I can't stop it. This thought though is the problem. It appears without warning. It beckons: Kill me. Today my nervous habit of talkin to myself in public had me mouthing those words in public. A car sped in front of me & I wish I had thrown myself in front of it. As soon as I saw the car I thought that I deserve a painful death. I thought about how I have never known true agony, and how I think I should. I think these thoughts are not normal because I believe that I am insane & I deserve to die.

    Insanity (and sanity) is a pretty nebulous concept. isn't it? I don't know if anyone is sane. Who defines it? Who sets the standards of sanity?

    Well normal is a pretty relative term, I don't think there's a set definition for it. But I'm sure you could find the definition for sanity/insanity in a psychologist's manual somewhere. Still, the general concensus(not everyone sees it this way) is that you should want to live so any desire to end your life would probably be seen as unhealthy in the eyes of the majority.
