Ok, I will do that. I am nervous about going to a big clinic like that, but it’s what is needed.

Hi …. like piglit said, once you get there you will feel safe and taken care of. I’ve been where you’re at. I wound up one morning, after a steady slide downward, curled up in a ball in the corner of my bedroom. I called my dearest girlfriend and she came right over, helped me pack and dress, and went to the ER. I was there for 24 hours, was evaluated by doctors, nurses, social workers. They called my Psychiatrist, my pastor and my therapist and together decided I could go home IF I promised to see my Psychiatrist and therapist the next day. I learned that day that those folks really do care about our welfare, it’s not scary at all once you’re there. To me I felt safe from myself, protected, and cared about. You’ll be fine … I’m glad you wrote to us. Please let us know how you are doing. OK?

You need to go to your nearest hospital and tell them about your thoughts of suicide. There are many medications that may work. If non work, you could ask about ECT. I am going to be starting that next week

No need to think about suicide, forget it and hope everything will solve soon. No problems is permanent in life. Be patient and wait, everything will solve soon. If possible, go to mayoclinic or consult any psychiatrist or any concerned people.

Please call 911 or your outpatient treater.. Please take these thoughts serious and leave the details up to the professionals….There is so much to live for and after you are feeling safe you will be able to see that temporary issues do not have to make us find permanent solutions that are not really in our best interest..
