I feel this way ALOT of the time, the rest of the time I am actively suicidal, but there is a difference. I find that wanting to be dead is passive, you just wish it was that way, whereas wanting to kill yourself is active, and that is so much more scary. I have to be in a very different place emotionally to be actively suicidal to when I just wish I was dead.

Like the others have said, you may be wishing that the pain would go away, and you imagine that if you were dead you wouldn't feel the pain. For me its also about wishing that the pain was dead and not all of me.
