Don't wait, get help: Whether you have any intentions of hurting yourself or not, having suicidal thoughts is a serious matter. It is always the best choice to seek professional choice right away, without delay. Even if you have no intention of hurting yourself, the fact is that depressed people with that kind of thinking are prone to serious accidental injuries that can even be fatal. Don't wait.
