That is a good description of how I feel when I am feeling more depressed than usual. Thoughts of suicide are far more frequent and life seems like it will never be worthwhile. However, I always feel better in a few days or weeks. In the meantime, I just try to "buy time" and stay distracted in positive ways like watching DVDs, riding my bike, working on projects, being with my family, etc. Of course, other strategies include trying to challenge negative thinking, etc., but when I feel so pessimistic I really am better off just trying not to think about the future and focusing more on today and what activities I can do today.
