Hi, I know it's a tough time for you. Your life is nothing too precious so I suggest going to the hospital. I see your on a handful of medications. How are they helping? You shouldn't be feeling suicidal if the medication is working. They should help control your feelings. The next time you see your doctor, you should to them about your dosage and medication.

I agree with bipolardigest. You should be at the hospital even if they don't have beds or anything. The hospital is a way safer place for you then being at home right now with your thoughts.

Go to the hospital right away. Do you have anyone around close to you to keep you safe? Find someone and be honest with them so they can keep you safe for now.

Exactly. Go to the hospital and be honest with them. They can't help you if your not.

Suicidal thoughts are nothing to play around with. They can overpower your mind so you should be close to those who can keep a close eye on you. I would ask someone to take you to the hospital right away.

I'm very sorry you feel like this.
I recommend you get urgent medical assistance.
Please consider going to your emergency ward.
In the UK we call it A&E.
You need to keep yourself safe.
