Want to die, but not depressed, so is there a medical term or condition that causes this?

Want to die, but not depressed, so is there a medical term or condition that causes this?

Oxymoron: This view appears to be a contradiction. An evaluation with a psychiatrist or psychologist would provide an opportunity to explore what is behind this desire. With so little information it is impossible to explain a cause for this. Why would a person want to trade the known (which he or she is perfectly happy with) for the unknown? Why would a person want to make this sacrifice? Talk to your doc! Read more

Why do I get so depressed at night? To where ill cry and want to die and sometimes cut but in the morning I feel good again.

Why do I get so depressed at night? To where ill cry and want to die and sometimes cut but in the morning I feel good again.

Get psychiatric eval: Your depression sounds severe and requires a psychiatric evaluation. It's hard to say why your depression is so much worse at night but I can say that some people with severe depression are more depressed when they are alone at night. The cutting and the wanting to die are warning signs that you need immediate treatment. Read more

I'm 24 male with HIV I don't want to take medicine for it cause of the side effects what else can I do I don't want to die im scared and very depressed?

HIV Treating Miracle: Regardless of what you feel here is what 2o plus years of good experience with several thousand patients has taught me. 1. Early treatment saves lives and complications. 2. The old meds were too toxic, but the new meds now are safe and advised. 3. 10% of patients with HIV have immune collapse within the first year and this may mean they do not get full recovery. Please follow your doc's advice. Read more
