Mixedmary,

I feel worried for you - I hope you have people who you can talk to about this - friends, relatives, professionals.

When depression is severe i.e. strong suicidal ideation, it can be hard to keep safe - that's why it's important you have people around you, those who you can trust, with whom you can confide when you feel this way.

If you are in therapy, try to talk this over with your therapist - it might be that you can make certain arrangements to help you keep safe when you feel this way, this is what I've done.

Sorry, not sure if this is that helpful - I'd rather not talk about plans as it's triggering for me - the answer is yes - and to stop myself from acting on it, I force myself to be honest about what's going on in my head when I feel this bad - I also have sedation meds i.e. benzos, which have helped a lot. If things are really bad and you are alone, please consider phoning a help line and checking yourself into the nearest A&E.
