Thoughts of suicide. Some people might have frequent thoughts of suicide but never have a strong urge to kill them self. However, another person might not think about suicide often - but might have a strong urge to follow through, with plan & a true intent to die. When one feels utter despair & no longer can find a reason to live or if one is really upset & very impulsive risk may increase. There are always options >
not the thoughts. It is not the frequency of such thoughts that drive the thinking and decision making process. It is the nature of the underlying disorder. .. The depth of despair and hopelessness, the level of irritability and impulsivity, a state of drug/ alcohol intoxication.
