Hello and thank you for your question. I am very sorry that you are having these issues. It definitely sounds like you are suffering from a severe depressive disorder with significant suicidal ideations. If you know that the voice is originating inside your head and is not an exterior voice (e.g. think someone standing next to you and talking to you) than it would not appear you are suffering from auditory hallucinations, but most likely these suicidal thoughts are a result of a severe depression and you need to go to the nearest Emergency Room as soon as possible. But if these are voices you hear from outside your head as an exterior voice than this is a sign of an auditory hallucination telling you to hurt yourself. Either way you need to go to the Emergency Room as soon as possible to get treatment for this. I know you are afraid of having your children taken away from you, but your children would be devastated if you went through with these suicidal thoughts and succeeded. Right now you have to focus on your own mental health and increase the intensity of your treatment so that you can get better and be there for your children for the future.
