Suicidal Thoughts Are Not The Same As Being Suicidal

There was a time that I struggled terribly, when the doctors didn’t know what my diagnosis was (when I was unable to be reasoned with), with regards to my having a severe mental illness.

Eventually, they diagnosed me as having schizoaffective disorder, which is in a nutshell, schizophrenia and major depressive disorder.

And, I have lived with this disease for 20 years now.

The thing I wish to bring attention to has to do with suicidal thoughts and suicidal attempts.

Many people have suicidal thoughts (or suicidal ideation), but are not suicidal, and wouldn’t attempt it (i.e. they haven’t got a plan).

I am one of those people.

And, as intrusive as these thoughts may be, they only occur during times of increased stress.

So, suicidal thoughts are not with me all the time is the point, but just having suicidal thoughts is scary, and very much needs to be reported to a mental health professional immediately.

For me (someone who has been in treatment for 20 years), it’s unfortunately, a part of the package.

That said, I am in close contact with my psychiatrist any time my condition is exacerbated by suicidal thoughts.

NOTE: I am safe and sound, in my home, with my loving wife.
