tw feelings/thoughts of dying (not suicide) ive noticed this thing going on for the past few years where i feel like im about to die/like i could just stop trying and give up. it feels like i could just stop breathing and fall to the floor dead if i just stop trying to survive. it isnt a panic attack, because those make me feel like im physically dying in the moment. this feeling is more like "i am okay right now, but if i stopped trying i could die right here and now." It's so hard to describe. it's like i can feel every aspect of my body struggling to continue functioning and my brain is tried of keeping everything together. i just want to let go and unwind like a ball of yarn. it also isnt about suicide. i dont *want* to die anytime soon, and whenever i get this feeling im afraid to relax too much or my heart will just stop. unsure if this is a dissociation issue, a trauma issue, or a physical issue.

      These are called passive ideations, basically your brain is tired and wants to take an eternal nap but isn't interested in committing suicide to acheive that I'd suggest giving yourself a mental or physical break/rest when these happen - Willow

      mine are the same type of passive thoughts. I didn’t realize they even counted as “suicidal thoughts” until I started with my psychiatrist but I had been having “I could do this and just die” type thoughts since I was little. but I also fear dying so it’s quite the tug and pull lol I think mine at least is more of a trauma thing than anything but I also live in borderline dissociation all the time so idk 🤷🏼‍♀️😅
