Hi everyone, I have been married for about a year and a half. After each time I get into a disagreement with my wife, I fall into a deep funk...it used to last for days but now I feel better in about a day or two. During my funk, I have strong feelings of wanting to die, and suicidal thoughts. Last week I started cutting myself because I felt in such despair. Now I have a bunch of cuts on my arm and I have to wear long sleeves to hide them from everyone. I don't know why I feel so low from all of this. I mean, it's just a disagreement with my wife, right? I'm sure that there are a lot of people who are in, objectively, worse situations than I, but I doubt they all want to kill themselves. Does anyone know why I get so sad and upset over something so minor? My therapist thinks it's due to unresolved feelings from my childhood, and how my parents never made me feel important. Because actually the feelings of wanting to die started when I was very young, in junior high. By the way, divorce isn't an option - I would rather die than initiate divorce. I took a bipolar quiz online and I'm not bipolar. Just depressed. But I'm not always sad. When things are good, I'm not upset. I only get upset after fights.
