Have you ever felt like suicide was your only option even though you didn’t want to do it?

Lately I’ve felt so alone in life and I’ve made efforts to reach out to old friends, to make new friends, changing my routine to do more exciting things in life, taking vacations, trying to listen to positive music, and consciously trying to keep my thoughts in check to sort of rewire my brain to think more positively. Nothing seems to work for me. I’ve been on different kinds of depression and anxiety meds before and I didn’t notice any change other than I was extremely tired all the time. I’ve been to therapy. Didn’t work for me. I’m 31 now and really I don’t want to kill myself or anything, but at the same time, I honestly feel like that’s what I need to do. I’m tired of the constant feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, waves of depression, loneliness. I just want it to be over. It doesn’t even feel like depressed thoughts anymore honestly, it just feels that would really be the best thing for me to do from a logical standpoint. I have this inability to be happy in life and I don’t want to feel like this, I don’t enjoy my life so the logical solution would be to be done with life. Has anyone else felt this way? Or does anyone understand the feeling I’m trying to describe?

    I have never thought of committing suicide because I feared God would punish and rebuke me in the afterlife.

    If you could win a prize by hitting a target with an arrow and the arrows were free, what would you say to someone who asked you, "How many arrows do you want?" You wouldn't say, "Which is the best one?" You'd say, "How many can I have?"

    I can't tell you exactly what you need. There's no one size fits all solution. I can tell you though that there are healthy lifestyle choices that can enhance the effects of the standard treatments with office visits. This answer has details, under DEPRESSION TREATMENTS -

    The most important thing is knowing how to cope in a moment of crisis. It's very important to calm down. This will make you feel better and let you think clearly.

    A very easy way to calm down is just to breathe slowly. A doctor recommends inhale to a count of 4, exhale to 6. You'll feel better in 5 min or less.

    Also, simple distractions can be very good. This video has suggestions. It also has a very good hotline. No one will bother you if you call.
