Do doctors just not care if their patient commits?
Because, oh well. he/she should have gone to the ER.
Its not the doctors fault.
What kind of business is this?
You say you save peoples lives but when it comes down to it, you really don't care.
I am outraged. What on earth am I paying for, if my doctor isn't answering me in my time of need?
This is one big JOKE!!!
This is not about the relationship, this is about the money and the time in the office. Everything else goes out the door.
Therapy is one stupid joke. Because, guess what? At the end of the day, no one actually cares if you're dead or alive.

A lot more people than you think care about suicide. Star you need to get help. Is there anyone you can talk to? My therapist told me last week that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This will pass you just need to get through it. We are virtually holding your hand. I know what your pain is i am there with you. Nothing is right and everything hurts. Maybe try to sleep. I have found that sleeping sometimes helps het through the really tough patches

thanks. It doesn't seem to temperary as it keeps recurring. Need a safe place to go for the rest of yom tov where I can just be myself.away from my judgemental family.
I want to sleep badly. I've been taking lots of sleeping pills, too many, and it doesn't helps. Neither does valarien or wtvr it's called. Nothing affects me. I wish gd would be so nice to let me sleep it off.

Im sorry im too depressed to even write back a normal reply. I hope u feel better. I hope we all feel better. What makes this pain so much worse than all pain is that its so misunderstood and not accepted even though its so real. People dont give the same help or sympathy as other illnesses because they think we actually have control and can just snap out of it. Its just so painful and Gd is just turning away

thanks lasthope. yes, its like the invisible cast as you said. im sitting here hearing all my sisters and mother working hard to clean up and im too scared to heighten my anxiety by walking into the kitchen. but im sure my sister is judging me and thinking:is it really so hard for her to lift a finger?(which i did-i cleaned the table when this sister wasnt looking.)

Oh wow that's really painful. I have that too.

I was thinking of suicide 24/7 before Pesach. I even tried to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge.
Now I'm on a low dose of trazodone and I can go to work, be with my friends, and enjoy life. Not to sound like my life is completely perfect but the good thing is I'm not in bed all day long crying.

How is it for you? Do you also find it hard to get out and do things? I found that the hardest part.
Looking forward to hearing from you

-Mimi

In low doses, trazodone is helpful for sleep. Some people cannot tolerate even small dosages due to morning sedation. Few people are able to tolerate the higher doses which are helpful for depression due to the sedation.
