I don't know if this would help, but when I'm feeling suicidal, it's not so much wanting to be dead, more of not feeling able to continue being alive. Overwhelmed by life, and having too much bad happening to be able to see "enough" in what isn't bad to continue on.

Does that make sense? I guess what I'm saying is that suicidal impulses for me aren't made up of wanting to be dead, so much as needing the unbearable pain to stop.

My advice to you, though, is to talk to your pdoc about it again, and tell her that it is serious and that you need her to address it. It *is* serious, and you *do* need her to discuss it.

Good luck.
