I feel like committing suicide as I went into depression from gush of negative thoughts in my mind. Please help me

Last Updated - Fri, Jan 04 2019

Detailed Question:

I have been experiencing this since 2-3 months.I have a huge gush of negative thoughts in my mind and I remain disturbed all the time because I really want them to stop having power over me. Last month I totally went into depression. I thought of committing suicide because there is nothing I am able to do anymore.

I used to be so active and so positive all the time that I excelled in everything I did. But lately I have been failing horribly in doing just anything. Everything distracts me now. I am sometimes unable to focus on what people speak. Sometimes, their hand movements disturb me. My mind makes me feel that I actually want to disturb myself. But I really don't. Why will I? 

I want to live happily and like any other normal person. But there is not a single moment now that I stay happy. I always think about it like I won't be able to do anything because my mind itself doesn't cooperate with me. 

When I try to focus, my mind gets so much clouded with all kinds of negative thoughts telling me that I won't be able to do it and obviously I can't because those tasks require a lot of thinking. please help me. I think it's high time and I can't really spoil my life anymore. 

Please help.

This requires a lot of will power to overcome. I understand you are trying to remove the negative thoughts from your mind but are unable to do so. You must consult a Psychologist immediately for sessions and therapy that will help you focus more clearly. 

This will take time but I'm sure you should be out of this in a while. Meanwhile, hang in there and try to think of what those thoughts are telling you and why is it so. Compare this with all your life's achievements so far and you will feel better about yourself. Having a positive outlook is not something too far-fetched and there are a lot of online materials that help in this and so does self-talk. 

Look in the mirror and speak to yourself in your mind arguing with your negative thoughts and repeat this "I can do it and I will." 

You must call on 022 2754 6669 AASRA Helpline immediately.
