Is laughing at the thought of your own death a serious mental problem?

I've been depressed all week because of many problems im dealing with. I was talking to my boyfriend about everything because I know I needed someone to talk to. Obviously, he was not in support of me killing myself which I've been legitimately considering. I never have the courage or heart to end my own life though. I've never been happy about this idea, ever. Earlier, I went to the bathroom just to try to relax. I looked in the mirror and was thinking about getting arrested so I could get away from my parents without killing myself. I also thought about committing suicide. After considering it, I started to smile and I laughed about it. As I looked into the mirror, I kinda tilted my head and smiled. As I did this, i was terrified of myself. It wasnt until about an hour later that I came to a conclusion that laughing about my own death might be a serious problem. I fainted yesteday if that's even relevant...

Thank you for asking
Laughing itself is not that big a deal but suicidal thought and family trouble with severe depression is worth a lot of psychological support. Life is very beautiful and does not deserve to be ended for some one else's crap time is a good teacher it will teach you every thing. Just give your self some time.
