    Should I tell my wife I've had suicidal thoughts?

    Tonight was very bad for me. I had a very strong urge to make my attempt tonight. It was accompanied by an even stronger urge to cut. Fortunately, it passed quickly.

    The wheels of professional therapy move slowly, so I will be suffering for a while.
    I could really really use the support of my wife. She knows I'm depressed but not the extent.

    I think you should.

    You need the support, and it'd probably help how you're feeling to not hold back thoughts from her.

    If she loves you, which I'm sure she does, she'll be ultra-supportive and understanding.

    I don't know about the state of your relationship, however; so if it's already fragile, you might not want to drop something heavy on glass.

    Whatever you choose, good luck and best wishes. :hug:

    I say yes also. Have you spoken to a Dr. about it? Or called a hotline when you get the feeling? My daughter completed suicide in March and you just can't believe the pain people would feel over losing you that's a living nightmare. Please, tell your wife. ((((hugs))))

    Thanks everyone for your input. I did tell her and approached it delicately. I think it was a big step in the right direction.

    Yes, you should be open with her and let her know what is going on. Communication is an important key to relationships. Good luck with whatever you decide, dear. :hug:

    EDIT: I just saw you told her, glad you did. :)
