    I agree you should see a doctor if you think you may be depressed or this is troubling you/affecting your life, as they can help. I think what you describe has a name - a form of fear of heights? Something phobia! Will say though that urges to jump and so on are actually surprisingly common (I certainly get them anyway, same with trains...) and it doesn't mean you have scizophrenia! Honestly, users of this forum...

    Fair enough: in that light, I can perhaps see what you're getting at :yes:

    Hi don't be too harsh on yourself. We are all human. We over analyse all the time. These thoughts that you have are just irrational and you understand that don't you. You are a decent human being and deserve to be happy. If you want to speak to a GP, do it! They won't judge you and will offer you advice. Remember you are in control of your life and at times we all get weighed down by a bit of depression.

    As many have said before me, please go and see a doctor. You don't deserve to feel that way, and there are people who can help you.

    So I was supposed to have an interview this morning up in London. ANyway, I left before it even started because of these suicidal feelings I get.

    It was on like the 5th floor and when I was walking into the office, there was a balcony with a very low fence. ANyway, I walked in and sat down to wait for interviewer. Then I suddenly ran out cos I couldnt get these feelings/urges out of my head to jump, I didnt even stay for the interview. I drove an hour to get there. Im honestly not trolling, I think there is somethign very wrong with me. I dont want to feel this way, its horrible. It happens everytime Im up high somewhere and there is a balcony or smoething, I have to get out. I dont have voices, just really strong urges to jump.

    I supopse I have probably been suffering from depression for a while and find it very difficult to get up inthe mornings, finding it difficult to get a job, just too many regrets from getting a 2.2. I cant imagine being normal again
    It is good that you have identified signs that may suggest there is a problem.

    I think it would be a very sensible idea for you to go see your G.P. to explain how you have been feeling.

    You could print what you have wrote in this thread to have something in writing. You have explained yourself very clearly.


    Hope this helps.

    Luke
