i have GAD and panic disorder. whenever i get panic attacks now, i get suicidal. when i feel one coming on now, i automatically go sit with someone cause i know i dont want to do anything like that. but when i get all panicky i just cant stop thinking about it. i start thinking, like im gonna have this my whole life. theres no point in keeping on trying. i should just die right now and be finished with this. i dont want to die!!! it just takes over my mind and makes me think i should. i feel so stuck!!! i was just wondering if theres other people that get suicidal with them? is this normal?
I get that way too. I think it''s part of those scary thoughts we get with panic attacks. I''m currently looking into bmsa techniques for help with my depression and anxiety, but it''s best to work with someone.
I've never read anything that links Suicidal thoughts with Chronic Anxiety disorder, I know there are some medications that can cause depression-like symptoms or even "feelings of suicide" check your meds if you're currently on or recently have stops.
OCD is an anxiety-family disorder that can cause onsessive thoughts like what you're describing.
I'd say if it's happenned more than once or if medication you're on has side effects I'd make an appointment to talk with your attending doctor immediately.
I also suffer from panic attacks and have never experienced thoughts of suicide. If you are taking meds I agree with wolf, many of them can actually cause severe depression, suicidal thoughts, and from personal experience depokote actually gave me panic attacks, made me want to jump out of my body. I discontinued that med, after 2 days. So many times medications, especially antidepressants, and others for bi-polar disorder make the situation worse. If you are taking meds I also recommend you call your doctor asap.
Hope this helps
I feel exactly the same way, for the past two weeks I've been feeling on edge and have had several panic attacks. I Think to myself, I'm not living like this for the rest of my life...maybe it would be better if i ended it.
I keep convincing myself that something else is wrong with me apart from the anxiety, if i get a pain in my stomach, I think i have stomach cancer, if I get a migraine due to the anxiety, I think I have a brain tumor. Sounds stupid I know, but in the moment you really convince yourself.
Also, for the past week I've been feeling depressed and not myself, this plus the panic attacks just make life seem unbearable. I'm usually a happy person and have never had these thoughts before.
Panic attacks are very scary, in most cases you feel like you are having a heart attack. From what both of you are describing it sounds like depression which is possibly causing the panic/anxiety you are feeling. Talk to your doctor asap, and have him recommend a psychologist or psychiatrist to see. We can only give advice on this forum but our not qualified to diagnose you. You need to seek help to conquer your issues. With depression you can have moments of happiness, and other times feel overwhelmed. their are so many mental disorders that can cause problems you descrbe, but if you truly want help see a professional.
I had my first suicidal panic attack .. I have never been suicidal in my whole entire life, of course yeahh I'm human i get depressed but it wasn't like that at all. I felt a panic attack coming but this one hurt my body felt like it was on fire, I went to the bathroom to wash my face & I thought I was gonna die like the panic attack hit me so hard that at some point I wanted to kill myself to end the pain & it go so outta control that I lost all control of my self & I was absolutely positive it was gonna be my last day on earth & I had to beg & scream for someone to help me someone to kill or tie me up before I did it myself it hurt so bad. I have never ever had anxiety like that & even though it felt like a panic attack, it also felt like my thoughts were attacking all my stressed just started beating me up & the worst part was while I was banging my self on the ground trying to stop this pain my nephew was looking at me screaming I scared him so bad, I am terrified to be alone & I am depriving myself of sleep for a bit til I figure out, I can't use my bathroom because I keep picturing everytime I go in there, I can't go near the dark I'm terrified, I feel so different now & it just happened recently,I just wanna know I'm not alone !
