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?

DEATH WISH: You may not be aware of your state of mind or what depression really is. Getting good night's sleep is important for physical & mental health. Have a physical exam to rule out illness. 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. Stay hopeful to boost your immunity.
