Apologies for the issue with a bizarre redirect on the site earlier today. There was a large server update and an error in an IP address had the traffic routing wrongly. No hacking or anything nefarious and nothing to worry about. Sorry for any stress/anxiety caused. Very best wishes - SF Admin
welcome to SF we are a peer community that cares but never judges. please look at the forums and post when you feel comfortable or go to chat if you prefer real time. i'm sorry that you suffer those thoughts so much @anveg .
the best way to deal with suicidal thoughts on a daily basis is to distract yourself as much as possible. watching movies or listening to movies will help as well as a hobby that you can be passionate about. and if you haven't already, talk to your doctor, he/she may be able to give you meds or refer you to counseling. and someone is always here if you need to talk to someone.
Hi @anveg, welcome to the forums, we're glad to have you here. I'm presuming you're struggling with suicidal thoughts at the moment. A lot of people on this forum have suffered with suicidal thought, most of them regularly.
There are many ways you could potentially deal with your suicidal thoughts - different ways might work for different people. Medication and therapy are common methods people use to help with their suicidal thoughts. You could also try distracting yourself with a hobby etc. whenever you have suicidal thoughts. For a lot of people avoiding drugs and alcohol that could potentially make the suicidal thoughts worse works. Talking about how you're feeling with someone else might also help.
Sometimes, you will just want to sit down to think about what are the things that you enjoy the most in this life of yours.
A movie? A song? A painting? A friendship? An achievement? A hobby? A faith? A community? A romance?
When you found something, go for them. If not, try something new, weird or bizzare but legal, things that you may want to say "No way!" in the first time. In my case, it was drawing.
Perhaps, nothing is enough to free you from the suicidal thoughts you are having right now, but at least life may feel less horrible for once in a while.
Hey @anveg It's understandable to think about suicide when you're in pain. If you haven't yet, I would recommend you speak to your doctor. It can make a big difference. Idk what I'd do without my meds. Speaking to a therapist can also make a difference if you can afford it. I recommend reading Feeling Good by Dr. Steve Burns. That book has helped me a lot. There are a few other books that have helped. Message me if you're interested.
Hee Anveg. I hope you will read this and your hearth gets encouraged. Here is what I know about suicide.
When people commit suicide, they don’t say:
“I want to stop living”
They do say:
“I want to be loved”
So it's a prayer that says, bring my body back home. You know, God is a God who sees. He sees your pain and suffering. Tell Him everything that you struggle with. Tell Him about your suicidal thoughts. He cares and doesn't condemn you. He will let you know, that you are not alone.
