Winter Depressions

A case of winter depres-sion could be the final spark in an increas-ingly pessimistic mood. Deal with your suicidal thoughts with the following practical tips.

Call a helpline
Suicide helplines are available the world over – just call up your local operator directory, or Google it. You can also post on an online forum for more genuine feedback. This will help you delay the out-of-control feeling that people contemplating suicide often feel.

Don’t feel ashamed of this feeling – it is said that one in six people consider suicide.

Know the Pain
A suicide is an instant solution to overwhelmingly difficult emotional/physical pain. It is not a defect, or a flaw in your moral character.


Delay It
Promise yourself you won’t take any steps to go ahead with your plan for suicide in the next 24 hours. Or even a week, if you can’t access someone who can help you till then. Waiting and sleeping over it will show you the difference between thinking about something and actually doing it.

But consider your 24 hour/one week period a deadline to suddenly feel better about life accept yourself

Avoid Drugs
At suicidal levels of pain, even alcohol is a drug. Don’t self medicate with over-the-counter drugs. They may cause uncontrolled mood swings, and some anti-depressants have even been linked to an increase in suicidal thoughts.

Suicide Proof Your Home
Sharp objects, painkillers, and guns are all off limits. If you can’t avoid them at your home, check in to a cheap budget hotel. Even your own prescription medicine (no matter what its been prescribed for) can be fatal, so only keep the day’s dose with you, and have a friend hand them out as per the prescription.

Talk to People
At this point in your life, shame is not really a concern. So call up anyone you’re close to, preferably someone you have confided in before and release the pent up pressure to communicate. Since a lot of motives for suicide are usually social in nature(depression, anxiety disorders, drug/alcohol addiction, financial, legal or school problems), dealing with this requires you to get approval from people about your life.
