    I never knew until tonight that the desire to kill yourself can be almost like a sexual desire, nearly irresistible. I want to do it so badly. My heart is pounding and my skin is tingling. I try to distract myself, but it's only partially working. Has anyone else ever felt that way? Is it normal?

    at least for me it is....are you manic/depressive?

    No, not manic depressive, according to my doctor. Simply suicidal, for good reasons. I got through last night, but if that happens again, not sure if I can resist it. I never expected a physiological urge. I thought it was all in my head.

    I was the opposite.. The three attempts I had I was very calm.. Thru therapy I have learned to live with the thoughts.. It's taken five years of therapy but I have learned alot on how to keep it under control..
