    Thoughts of suicide imply low serotonin. Look into NutrEval + a hormone panel (+ maybe genetic testing). Many are low in vitamin D (increases serotonin and often lowers depression) and magnesium. Add a multivitamin, D + K, and chelated magnesium supplement. For anything more serious/urgent, consider one of those hotlines or chatrooms.

    I would rather not kill myself. I wouldn't be able to get myself to do it and would rather keep it that way.

    Whenever considering suicide, always check to ensure it's not just a nutrient deficiency talking by fixing any that exist (or if more urgent, increase serotonin and dopamine).

    One of those gas containers + mask (that replaces oxygen in the lungs) is probably the most efficient way to end it.

    Big scary black demon things that suck the life out of you. They're basically the literary representation of JKR's depression while she was writing the books.

    So it's a powerful and chronic depression? @kari had a thread for curing that, didn't she?
    In all seriousness, though(her thread is actually full of great stuff, tbh), I have compassion...I suffered from depression periodically when I was a kid, and I had a good year long episode of it the year after I dropped out from college. There are a ton of strategies that can be effective...but I probably wouldn't venture to suggest much specific without knowing you better. The general approach that was most transformative for me, was radical self-forgiveness...refusing to be angry at myself, or angry at being angry at myself...basically forgiving myself for all of my frustrations, and for my own shortcomings, and for being impatient and disgruntled and anxious and apathetic and arrogant and generally human-hating. "I'm stupid, and ugly, and nobody likes me, but so what? God loves me anyway." That was my revised internal script, and knock on wood, I've been pretty well in the clear ever since. I recognize that the 'God' part might be a turnoff for a lot of people...and normally I would translate it for secular purposes, because I don't really think religion/spirituality is necessarily the lens people need to take...but I don't think I could really convey the idea more clearly, otherwise. Just substitute 'God' for whatever you consider to be loving, I guess.
    ...the origin of emotional sickness lay in people’s belief that they were their personalities...
