    No, it isn't. It's not clear what you are trying to say.

    If you want to use "myself" after "saw", you could say something like "In my dream, I saw myself preparing to commit suicide".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
