hey Elaine.
don't even worry about not responding to posts if you are not up to it, we certainly understand. and you are going through some really rough stuff right now.

and if you are not comfortable talking to someone about what is going on with you emotionally then maybe just keep some friends close by...distraction is good. and just talking about being forced into residential treatment makes my skin crawl. it's been a nightmare of mine since i was literally a little girl. it scares the beegesses out of me. but remember, going to the hospital will not force you into treatment. usually these days, they keep you for an average of 2-3 days and better or not they put you to the streets after that. so it's good that you wont be there forever, but maybe enough to keep you safe for a few days. please don't be afraid to use this as a resource if things get too hairy.

and i know it seems like an impossible task but i just can't stress this enough, you REALLY should call your GP again and try to get in. i think one of the others mentioend sitting in her office till she can fit you in...i would do this. afterall she did mess up your appointment and they NEED to know this is not a routine appt. You NEED to see the doc.

and you've been going pretty well with following your insticts about your T so far, keep it up. if you don't feel comfortable talking with your T about your SI then by all means don't. I really don't feel comfortable about you even talking to your T period. i think also that you should call and cancel. cold, out of town guest, bird flu, hemmoragic fever, i don't care what the excuse is. but i really don't think that going to see him is even going to make things easier on you, even though two weeks IS a long time. how is seeing him really going to help?
maybe instead of seeing him, you can finger through the yellow pages and pick out a new T to try out. that way you are going to see someone, you aren't committing to anything and who knows maybe you'll hit it off?

please, no matter what you decide, know we are here for you. and no matter what! you can ALWAYS talk to us.
post when you can.
take care of yourself ElaineM
