I've had the thoughts when I wasn't feeling particularly bad. There are degrees of depression for me, and some don't really feel all that bad, almost pleasantly numb, but I notice things that don't seem normal, like suicide thoughts, and just not functioning all that well, not taking care of things, and thinking it's rational, because those things aren't worth doing. I recognize that these are symptoms of depression, but I think who cares, I feel OK.

So.. I guess I'm trying to say that suicide thoughts are indicators of depression, even when you don't necessarily feel all that bad. The low mood is only one of the many symptoms right? You can have a lot of the other symptoms without that one.

I used to have suicide thoughts almost all the time, like the possibility would just be there somehow, even though I wasn't really planning it or yearning for it. Gradually there was some space between the thoughts, and finally they went away so much that having them at all seemed unusual. I'd go a year or two without them. Lately they're more frequent.
