Feeling really bad. Would lie in bed all day but I have to do stuff and people are coming round later. I don't really see much point in living anymore.

Bansheee,

Please correct me if I'm way out of line here, but I've always understood that with OCD it was a mental compulsion to do certain acts (like cleaning), whereas with audio hallucinations associated with psychosis and schizophrenia, you are actually hearing the voices ( even though there is no physical source for them).

As I said, anyone feel free to let me know if I've got the wrong end of the stick.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), a type of anxiety disorder, is a potentially disabling illness that traps people in endless cycles of repetitive thoughts and behaviors. People with OCD are plagued by recurring and distressing thoughts, fears or images (obsessions) that they cannot control. The anxiety (nervousness) produced by these thoughts leads to an urgent need to perform certain rituals or routines (compulsions). The compulsive rituals are performed in an attempt to prevent the obsessive thoughts or make them go away

Hi everyone,

I'm going away early tomorrow morning and I won't be back until Tuesday or Wednesday, possibly. Just in case anyone noticed and worried. I probably won't be able to get on the internet, so it'll be radio silence from this end. Take care and look after yourselves.

:hugs: for all.

Hannah

I know this feeling oh too well . Just remind yourself of how well you have coped up until this point. You will get through this, just like you get through all of the other times you plummet. I know it feels like you wont but you will. It's hard to listen to other people sometimes, especially when the people offering you advice often forget to follow it themselves... but please remember that this feeling will lift and that you will not feel so crushingly depressed forever. I know people always say this and I really want to believe that it's true. Has anything or anyone triggered these suicidal feelings/thoughts or has it come completely out of the blue? Lots of love and hugs :hugs:.

Holly, please try and keep calm until your parents get back - you HAVE done well this week, and I think that if you can make it through to tomorrow then that could be a major milestone for you. Just for today and tonight, try and empty your thoughts - don't think about the past, don't think about the future. We're all here for you if you want to talk.

It might be a good idea to make sure you've got the regular and out-of-hours numbers for doctors handy, so that if you don't think that you can take anymore then they can help you. (Mine gave me tranquilizers when I went in to hospital on Monday, and that really helped, but obviously it's best to avoid going down that route if at all possible.)

:hugs: Thinking of you.

I don't know if it helps much, but when I talked with the doctor on Monday he said that with modern therapies and medication, the whole concept of chronic depression, i.e. where your depression never lifts, or repeatedly comes back, is pretty much a thing of the past. So we won't all feel like this forever, although it can often be pretty hard to hang on to that thought at times.

I agree with that: it's hard to hold onto the idea right now but I have evidence from the past. I'm still feeling pretty bad My friend just came round for a bit, and whilst she was here it was good then my mood plummetted back to how it was before. Getting pretty bad urges to hurt myself, but at least I have counselling tonight (finally, cos the days got changed :|)

He hasn't met me ;no; Seven and a half ****ing years, and I'm at breaking point again. I've been on medication, I've had counselling, I've done CBT, I've done all of that stuff that doctors and the like have recommended for me, and this keeps on coming back :bawling: It's like a goddamn cockroach.

You will get through this, just like you get through all of the other times you plummet.
Even a cat only has nine lives, and I must be running low by now

Has anything or anyone triggered these suicidal feelings/thoughts or has it come completely out of the blue?
No, it's out of the blue. I fell back into feeling a bit down at night (which isn't a good thing when you sleep during the day ) a few days ago, and that's progressively got worse...but this just hit me like a brick wall I wasn't expecting it and I don't think anything triggered it...ugh, even if I was to never get rid of the depression I wish for the love of God that I could actually be able to think clearly when something like this happens :cry:
