Severe depression, suicidal thoughts throughout the day. How can I regain composure?

Hi Dr Samuel i m 23 years of age and i was dignosed with severe depression in 2009 and i have been having these thoughts about holding a gun 2 my head and pulling the trigger. I keep getting these thoughts and visions all the time and sometimes i think to myself if i did commit suicide with a gun it will be better because everyone will be much better without me. I have this very special friend who has helped me through think and thin and always been there 4 me. I always keep telling her attention seeking lies and she has no way of helping me with my depression. I really want her back in my life 2 help me and get her trust 100 percent without me lieing 2 her. Do u know what the best thing i can do 2 get her trust and faith?

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

You need to seek professional help for your depressive feelings and suicidal thoughts. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome your problems. Regarding regaining your friend's trust, you have to first stop your attention-seeking behaviour and lying for which you have to put in sincere efforts from your side and change this pattern of behaviour. If you need any guidance for this, please don't hesitate to seek professional help. So, please consult a psychiatrist at the earliest.

Wish you all the best.
