Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I can understand that you are in the midst of a very difficult time. You seem to be going through a depression which is probaby the cause for your negative and suicidal thoughts. You have mentioned that you have not shared your thoughts with your CBT therapist, but you should understand that you will be able to come out of this phase only if you start talking to someone.

Since you appear very distressed and are having suicidal ideas, I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for professional help. If you are feeling too amotivated to do that, then you can take the help of someone known to you - maybe a close friend or a relative. Remember that there is a lot of help available to help you get out of this phase, so, please take the initiative to seek help.

Wish you all the best.

Thanks for your query. I understand your predicament. It is likely that you are suffering from depression that has resulted in negative and suicidal thoughts in your mind. I would also suspect a possibity of impulsive disorder associated with self harm thoughts. I would recommend a thorough psychiatric evaluation that would address these issues. If you are hesitant confide in a close friend or relative and visit a psychiatrist. It would help you out. Both medication and psychotherapy are available to address your issues. Wish you speedy recovery.
