Can you read right now? Sometimes I can't read when I feel really bad. But if you can, that is one way to escape much of these bad feelings. I find I need to reread a book I already know I like - or I read about people who are struggling. Often I read about suicide - kind of like, if I can't get away from my own thoughts, I'll read someone else's. I told my therapist once that I was surprised the Uni library didn't make a report on me - I checked out 6 books about suicide all at once.
I strongly recommend anything written by Kay Jamison. I learned a lot from "Night Falls Fast" including how to help myself more.
Hang in there. I know how painful it is but, selfishly, I'd miss you.
