I've asked this question often - is expressing suicidal ideation inherently manipulative? Is it a cry for help? It is a cry against so much pain? I think talking about these ideas in therapy help me see a number of things. I DO want my therapist to react in some way - by caring enough about me to say, "please don't." But I DON'T want him to rescue me from myself by locking me up, etc. He tells me that if I'm feeling these things, something needs his attention. It might be the pain, it might be other needs, but this is an extreme call. Pathological, conscious manipulation is more when you don't actually feel suicidal but claim to, in order to get something.

I don't know about you, but when I read all that stuff, I get upset with myself for not knowing my own motives. I think I should "know" my unconscious - and not be "so out of control."

I'm glad you are feeling better and your kitty came home.
