> This weekend I felt compelled to write out a plan. I'm not going to let myself carry it out, but still. Any good ways to stop the thoughts?

Along with that plan, could you write out another plan? This sometimes works for me. I write all the things I have not yet tried for my depression: the medication, type of therapy, people to spend time with who make me feel better, etc.

This list serves to balance the other list. Not a cheery, gooey list, but a real plan of possible medical and psychiatric resources: things that might work to alieviate your depression.
When I do that list, I realize that I am not at the end of the line; there are still options left that I haven't tried. So it is not the time to give up.
