Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Please do not think about suicide as you have a beautiful life ahead awaiting you.
Depression or anxiety or stress all of these can bring thoughts of hopelessness , worthlessness and suicide when allowed to increase to a certain extent.
Depression can be inherited without any fault of yours or acquired due to unavoidable circumstances.
Whatever the cause the fact that you have thought about suicide makes it most likely that you are suffering from some psychological stress with accompanied depression and which definitely needs treatment .
It is very much treatable and you can achieve a normal lifestyle with friends and family.
All you have to do is confide in a close relative ,parents , friends anyone and consult a psychiatrist for the confirmation of diagnosis and starting appropriate treatment. There are millions of youngsters in this world who are facing similar problems and seeking medical help is the best thing you can do for yourself at present. The fact that you have asked this query itself indicates that you are strong enough to address your health issues and live a better life.

So be positive and wish you all the best for a healthy future.

Welcome to HCM

I don't know the authenticity of the online tests and if you ask me personally i don't give much importance to that.

From your mentioned symptoms i think you are in depression, symptoms like feeling sad and worthless, suicidal thoughts.

One should identify the cause for it and should be addressed. Cause might be personality - negative thinking, pessimism, excess worry, low self-esteem, a hypersensitivity to perceived rejection, overdependence on others, a sense of superiority or alienation from others, and ineffective responses to stress can become inexpressive.

Difficult life events, loss, change, or persistent stress can be the cause. Even the medical condition and certain medication which you might be on can also responsible.

Treatment option includes finding the cause and addressing it. Other components of treatment may be supportive therapy, such as changes in lifestyle and behavior, psychotherapy, complementary therapies, and may often include medication. Oral antidepressant are given.

I advice you to speak with your parents regarding this and also the cause if you are aware of it and consult the psychiatrist, he will speak with you then will decide regarding the medicines.

Hope i have provided with information you needed.

Take care.
