HI! I AM NEW TO THIS WHOLE THING. AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT PEOPLE THINK I SHOULD DO. I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH DEPRESSION FOR ALMOST THREE AND A HALF YEARS NOW. I HAVE ATTEMPTED SUICIDE ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION. WELL NOW I HAVE A WONDERFUL HUSBAND WHO IS IN IRAQ AND 3 CHILDREN. I AM THINKIN HEAVILY ABOUT SUICIDE AGAIN. SO INSTEAD I WENT TO MY DOCTOR WHO SENT ME TO A MENTAL HEALTH OFFICE. I SPENT ALL MORNING THERE EXPLAINING WHAT WAS GOIN ON. IN LEHMANS TERMS I AM MAKIN MY SELF THINK I AM DEPRESSED. THIS IS WHAT I WAS TOLD. BUT ALTHOUGH I SPENT 2 HOURS WAITING TO TALK TO A THERAPIST THEY IN TURN HAND ME AN APPOINTMENT FOR TOMORROW. SEEING HOW IT WAS ALMOST THEIR LUNCH TIME I ASSUMED THAT MY PROBLEM WASNT AS IMPORTANT TO THEM AS THEIR MEAL WAS. NOW I AM USING WHAT LITTLE BIT OF ENERGY I HAVE NOT TO OVERDOSE OR SOMETHING ELSE. I WANT HELP AND I ATTEMPTED THE HELP AND ALL THEY DID WAS LOOK AT ME LIKE THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG. WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN PEOPLE WONT TAKE MY PROBLEM SERIOUS? mad

I am sorry you are in so much pain. My heart goes out to you. We hear and care about you. Try and treat yourself to something special. It doesn't have to be a big thing,...even something small can help. If your appointment with this doctor doesn't go well, can you choose another doctor? Let us know how it went...

Hi Tara.  This may be a stupid question but are you on anti-depressants?  Also, could you get out into the sunshine and fresh air for a bit, sometimes that works wonders.  I have been in your place and need you to know, there is hope.  Do you have any family or close friends you can talk to?  If not, maybe try writing in a journal.  Sometimes just getting our feeling out helps.  I really don't know what else to tell you Tara except hang on, tomorrow will be a better day.  Know that you are important to many here on earth and would be terribly missed.  Take care of yourself Tara and maybe treat yourself to a warm, bubbly bath and a funny book or movie. 

God Bless, Softy

I WANT TO THANK U FOR UR INPUT.I RECENTLY FOUND OUT THAT MY MOM WAS ASKED BY A DOCTOR ONCE WHEN I WAS YOUNGER IS I HAD EVER BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER. SHE NEVER TOLD ANYONE UNTILL TODAY WHEN I MENTIONED THAT IT SOUNDS LIKE THE SAME SYMPTOME I HAVE. I AM PRETTY UPSET THAT SHE HAD NEVER REALLY BOTHERED TO FIND OUT. I HAVE ATTEMPTED SUICIDE SO MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS. AND I ALWAYS ASSUMED I WAS NORMAL. NOW WITH 3 KIDS AND A HUSBAND I DECIDE TO FINALLY GET HELP. I DO TREAT MYSELF AND TAKE TIME FOR MYSELF BUT THAT JUST SEEMS TO MAKE MORE TIMW FOR ME TO THINK ABOUT HOW AWFUL THINGS ARE. I KNOW PEOPLE LOVE ME BUT THE WAY I LOOK AT IT IS THIS. IF I WERENT HERE THEN THEY WOULDNT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ME SO MUCH. I KNOW I HAVE TO GET THROUGH THIS AND I HAVE TAKEN MY FIRST STEP.I JUST HOPE THEY WILL GIVE ME THE HELP I NEED. WHERE I LIVE LUNCH IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN MAKIN SURE SOMEONE IS OK. I SEEM TO ALWAYS GET THE RAW END BUT I JUST TAKE IT. ANYWAY THANK U FOR U WARM THOUGHTS AND GESTURES. I WILL LET U KNOW WHAT WAS DONE AT MY APPOINTMENT TOMORROW. UNTIL THEN HOPE ALL IS WELL

JI ALL I JUST GOT BACK FROM MY APPOINTMENT WITH THE SHRINK. SHE THINKS I NEED MEDS AND THERAPY SESSIONS. SHE WAS REALLY CONCERNED WITH THE FACT THAT I AM SUICIDAL. SO WE R GONNA WORK ON IT I GUESS. TODAY WAS AN OK DAY. NOT AS BAD AS OTHERS I HAVE HAD.

I am so glad. I had a really hard weekend myself. If we can just keep on helping each other I think we can turn things around. Please keep us updated on how your doing.

Terri :-)
