Is it possible to want to die but not depressed and suicidal? i don't have any signs of depression at all and i don't want to kill myself, but i'd be glad if i were to die or be killed as soon as possible?

If cleared consult with a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy & a Psychiatrist for medication. Fears & anxiety are heightened due to Covid-19.
