Jan again. I just read through some of your other conversations, and got an idea of what you've been going through the past couple of days. (Your message starting this thread now was the first one I'd seen.)

I'm so glad that you've gotten the wonderful support from the folks here. And I'm glad to know that it's helped you. In my previous message I wrote a little earlier, I encouraged you to write me a personal e-mail so that I could recommend a competent thereapist to you. I can see from some of your other messages that you may not be willing to do that. If that's the case (though you're still welcome to), at least let me know what area you're in, I'll ask my therapist, and then I'll post the name of the referral. If you *do* feel okay about writing me, I'm sure that I could get help to you much more quickly.

Deb is exactly right that *any* health care practitioner should just jump when the subject of suicide comes up. In fact, they're supposed to pick up on signals even before you mention it. I know that my therapist has been aware enough to ask me if I was suicidal when I gave off certain signals. (I wasn't at the time, but it was nice to know she was being aware.)

Please, Racer, I'd like to hear from you again, either here or in my own inbox. Congratulations on your willingness to fight this thing, and not give up. I applaud your spirit in recognizing *when* you're not getting what you really deserve.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
