I did, but it went -- literally -- nowhere. The licensing board wrote back to me, telling me they needed more information about x, y, and z. The things they asked looked to me as though they hadn't really read the dang thing.

As a result, it was a negative experience for me.

Writing it, though, was a positive experience for me.

If you choose to do it, the licensing board for your state will have a website, and that website will have information about how to do it. And I agree that seeing another T to talk about this would be very good for you.

Yes. There is absolutely a difference between the two. Not wanting to exist is passive, but there's a great chasm between that and the active form: suicide.

One of the worst things about having made that leap, is that you can never get back to the other side of the abyss. It doesn't matter how strong you feel, or how well your life is going, it's always somewhere there that suicide is an option. That can be kinda liberating -- "well, I may as well try, since I don't have to live with the consequences if it goes wrong..." -- but mostly it's just shattering.

I don't know if that makes sense, but truly -- there is a huge difference between being so miserable you don't know how you can live through another day, and actually making the shift into feeling as though you need to make it happen.

I hope that helps a bit.
