There were 2 things I did when I was horribly depressed and often suicidal for 3 long years:
#1 I'd call a friend who had seen me in the depths, and hung on tight. I knew she couldn't relieve the pain, but she gave me a safe place
to cling to (kinda like a friend helping a woman in labor); #2 I took a risperdal. It didn't stop the pain, but it definitely took the edge off so I didn't feel so desperate and ready to jump ship.
I only started using risperdal after about a year and a half of depression; I wish I had had it from the beginning. It soothed things a bit, without making me feel drugged. I hope these suggestions and those from others help. Deep depression can be hell. Take care.
