Dr. Bob had no choice but to do what he did. If someone notifies him of another's intent to harm himself or another, like any medical doctor, he is bound by ethical and even legal guidelines that force him to notify the appropriate authorities. If he did not do what he did, he could get sanctioned and even sued.
Having suicidal thoughts is one thing, but you had a clear plan of action. There was no choice in the matter.
I have a feeling though- this whole experience will turn your life around for the better. The drugs you get from a psychiatrist may be just what you need to be in the state of mind you wish to be in. Give it some time. Things will settle. Think of the possibilities - your new beginning.
Take good care xo
