I've been very close to your situation. I had obsessive thoughts of death and suicide that went along with two suicide attempts. During my third stay in a Psych hospital I was introduced to Zyprexa. It is listed as an anti-psychotic but works very well for depression and obsessive thoughts.

I reacted to it within a week. It cleared up my thinking 100%. I still have problems with depression and anhedonia but I don't havve the same obsession with suicide that I once had.

Please talk to our doctor about your thoughts and consider something like Zyprexa, Seraquel or Risperdal that may help you with both the depression and the ruminating thoughts.

E-mail me if you want. I was there two years ago and it's tough.

My Best,
