The most frequent one these days is "I'm going to commit suicide". Yet I've been suicidal, and this repetitive, flat thought is not the same thing as feeling suicidal. I don't feel particularly hopeless or distressed when the thought happens. I've just quit worrying about it. It seems like bizarre brain junk to me, not particularly meaningful.

i've had almost exactly the same thought with the same lack of suicidal feeling off and on through the years. It scared me silly the first time it happened. Now I recognize it mainly as a marker of stress and also shrug it off. I've wondered if what's significant about these suicidal thoughts is that they are so taboo and whether it has any relation to the taboo thoughts of OCD. Or cursing in Tourettes.
