A doctor can put you in the hospital if you have a plan and/or a time and you admit you could do it. I was suicidal in the emergency room once, I did have a plan, but not a time, and I admitted I probably couldn't actually carry it out. They counseling me, put a bandaid on it, and sent me home with the option of a partial hospital stay if I chose to.

You should, I think, share your feelings with the doctor. To not do so is to be dishonest to the doctor and to yourself.

They don't want to be so inadequate as to have their patients kill themselves. They are in fear of lawsuits also. They really can't adequately treat you unless they know what they are dealing with. Be honest and it may step up their efforts.

Slipping over the edge from severe depression to suicidal attempt is a thin line that can happen without warning. Been there done that. You need a pledge to yourself in an 911, call a crisis hotline, or get to the hospital.

You also need the doctor's office and/or a friend and/or a family member to contact you every single day to just talk. Call a church and have someone from there call you every day. It only works in your favor when you are honest.

What happens in the aftermath of a hospital stay is temporary. Suicide is permanent. Get the daily contact going, get a pledge going, and be honest with the doctor. You will get through it.
