OK. I gave up and decided to go back to a day hospital situtation...I don't want to go inpatient again since it seriously hurt my kids last time. (They are still making me projects and stuff so I don't forget them if I go away again.) They accepted me on part time basis but I"m fairly sure I need full time. The problem is I have to rate suicidal ideation 1 - 10 on a daily basis. Don't know what to write for Monday. I obsess about it
day and night. I dream about it and when I have dreams of being run over by a car, I let it happen! I'm too scared to admit I probably deserve a 10 on ideation (though I pretty much don't act on it) but at same time, if I don't tell the truth I know they will disocontinue me too early again. What do?????????? Forgot to say they changed it and it is now a DBT track in the program I"m in. Something helpful perhaps.

I hope it is successful for you.

Why are you scared to rate a 10? What can happen?

I'm worried if I write 10, I may go inpatient. They kinda warned me that if they get even slightly nervous they would refer meto inpatient.

You write that you are fairly sure that you need full time, but you don't want to since it hurt your kids last time.

I once heard someone say, that even if someone makes mistakes in the way they discipline their kids, their kids will still love them.

I think that one can say the same with regard to a health issue, that the kids will still love you. And they even make projects so that you don't forget them. This shows their deep love for you.

And as for the hurt; there may be hurt in the short run. But I'm sure that when it's explained to them that you love them, and that you need to feel better so that you can take better care of yourself and your family, that they will understand.

Hope to hear good news.

Gad, I guess I should clarify. I need to be in an outpatient setting full time, not part time. I don't really need or want inpatient as it will cause significant disruption to my children and it does very little (if anything) to really help. Inpatient just messes with the medication and there is no therapeutic value to it in my opinion. Furthermore, although I am obsessing on suicide, I KNOW the reason why is because of the antidepressant I am taking. (I guess I should put my foot down and discontinue it, but I haven't gotten to that point yet for some reason.) I am unlikely at moment to act on the obsession with killing myself though because I am so sure it isn't a true feeling but one that is a very negative side effect. (My doctor says maybe it will go away if I tolerate it long enough.....I wonder.)

I assume that they have tested this medication and that they have statistics regarding its side effect; and that the statistics may indicate how often it happens, how dangerous it is, and how often it goes away.

Maybe your doctor has access to this information; and maybe he can tell it to you and thus possibly reassure you.
