I think you've hit the nail on the head on a couple of things.
First, I don't really consider my suicidal thoughts to be related to my illness, except that my illness might be adding to the psychological stress. I see it as more of a choice.
Second, you're completely right. I shouldn't feel so guilty about thoughts I haven't acted out on yet. When I act on them, I'll have to feel guilty about going to church.
I wonder if my OCD is acting up a bit. Because I usually recognize that second one.
Thanks for helping me sort things out a bit before I ended up confessing all to my pastor, which would have been a mistake.
