Yes it is nice to know I'm not alone too. I can be persistently depressed in a way which I can clearly identify. Other times I can be in the middle of a fairly ordinary day and something pretty minor will trigger alot of suicidal thinking - like suddenly feeling overwelmed by work; or remembering some task that I needed to get done and haven't. It doesn't immobilize me, necessarily but it certainly doesn't mobilize me to get stuff done either. Mostly I'll just stare out the window, worry about things, and accomplish nothing. Even if I can get off the suicidal thinking, it certainly spurs alot of obsessively negative self judging.
It's a wonderful dynamic.
