When these thoughts overwhelm me, I take strong sedatives and sleep for 12-14 hours. I usually feel better after that. Just shutting my brain down for a time usually helps. You have young children and can't abandon them. They would be devastated if you killed yourself. If the thoughts don't pass or lessen, you need to go to a hospital and just take a few days in safety to gain control. My DBT therapist told me the SI is the enemy, not the solution. I also feel sometimes like I want to go home, but home for me was a dangerous unhappy place, so when I think of going home, I think of being dead. So I try to let those thoughts go. My DBT therapist is trying to get me to sit with the thoughts and feelings, not distract myself or let them overwhelm me, but just watch them with curiousity -- okay, I feel this, what is that about? It's hard. I've only just started doing this but it does work. And when it doesn't, I knock myself out with haldol and ativan to shut my brain down for a while.
