In brief: Not common

Thoughts of suicide are not uncommon in seriously depressed persons, but mere sadness should not lead to thoughts of self harm.
Thinking of ending one's own life is a serious psychiatric symptom that requires immediate treatment. Please see your doctor and ask to see a mental health professional or f you are seriously considering suicide call 911 or go to your nearest eric.
