What is a real : Positive is that you recognize you need help. If you have a suicide plan that you want to act on - then you need to be seen at the nearest emergency room now. You could be transported by a relative or friend or call 911 for transport. If you are not at immediate risk then please see you physician for a full evaluation. Also, strongly encourage you to see a psychologist &/or a psychiatrist. Start.
