Hi Cactus,

I think about suicide often. My therapist says that it comforts me that I have an escape plan if things get so bad I can't take it anymore.

This past week someone that I don't know made it to the local papers for commiting suicide in the exact way I have planned it. How horrible for her family and for her, I know I would just want to quietly go into that gentle night without someone reporting it.

I am not suicidal right now, I can't say about the future, but right now I am doing okay despite the trigger of this past week.

Being cornerned in your life choices can
make you feel suicidal -- no way out, and
too depressed or tired to find a way out.
Those times are good times to actually
get out of the situation and do something
different for a while. There are two things
that keep me from doing it, besides the thought
of what grief it would bring to my parents--
that you may screw up the method and end up so broken physically or mentally that you wouldn't
have a chance to try it again, and lithium. I don't think i would be alive today without lithium.

thank you daisy....yes. i DO need to remember it from the other side.
i still think of my friend that died that way...i still think...if only...and why...
she had three children.
i guess i keep thinking...she did. her kids survived...
but i'm not in their lives, so i dont know.

...but after this weekend. i know that if i left, my daughter would not be cared for as she needs. my DH just would never give her all i want for her. NOBODY can.
as MUCH as i feel i want to give in...i know i can't...sometimes (im not sure if this makes sense) but sometimes when i think that...that i KNOW i can't. it makes me worse. :(

but i want you to know i DO appreciate you saying what you said.

Is there going to be any information about
this person, and his life? From the posts,
i think he was struggling with his medication
and having little success.

It's kind of hard living on the net.

Dearest Declan, it hurts me that you've gone. you had great taste in music, and were a wonderful father...someone to aspire too. to took so much joy in the little things with your kids. thank you for sharing your joys of them with me/babble

-here's knowing you are in that double rainbow you once saw.

LOL, i don't even know you in RL. Why should
i be mad at you? I am training myself to
separate Virtual Reality from RL-- it's tricky
i admit. When someone dies on the net, and you
don't know who they are... it's tricky.

Just to clarify, no, he's not. Or at least, the person who posted as Declan isn't. But it was something Sigismund repeated to himself.

ya that image stuck in my mind for something for me to picture when i'm sad.

Sig/dec
thank you and phillipa for responding. i'm so "on the bad edge" right now that i couldn't handle hearing you had hurt yourself. i can't teeellllll you how GLAD i am that you are here.
i think the reason it struck me so hard with you is i remember the conversation we had about kids.(this was a while ago-probably last fall cuz i had such a HORRIBLE pregnancy) and i remember you talking so wonderfully about the little things that you enjoy about having more than one kid. i remembered that and hung on to that.

lately all i've been able to hang on to, to NOT do myself in is my little one. and the thought that 'declan' a Wonderful father who loved his kids so much was able to bypass that and give in. broke my heart and let my 'bad voice' in.

and all i kept hearing inside was "see", "people with kids DO do it....you can too".

and for the record this is NOT meant to blame or point fingers or any crap like that.
i'm talking about whats going on inside me. i guess i keep finding reasons TO do it, and not many NOT to. only one. my little girl.

so i am VERY relieved and HAPPY you are here. kiss those kids.

had a great psych nurse talk to me, she is sending a PSYCH TEAM over in 4 hours to my house. They want me on a mood stabliser, which is the least drowsy. PLEASE don't move this post I've already put it on the meds board and different people this board. They call the CATT teams and they come to your house and assess what med changes you need. It's free too

Where do you live? You don't have to be specific,
but this is not the kind of service you might find
everywhere -- i am betting on Britain, right?

Cactus,
I am crossing my fingers that things went well. Hope you have internet access over the weekend. Let us know if you need to process anything that happened with your treatment team.

You must be exhausted. I hope you're relieved too.

lotsa people caring about you and sending warm wishes for your path to stability

hugs,

thanks Li, they have been coming eveyday for the last 4 days now. It's a mixture of pdoc, T's and social workers so it's a bit daunting because it's a different team everytime and they are all throwing questions at you. So I bit the bullet and went back to see a T, just had my first session today. I hate starting with new T's. It's a pain in the *ss and to be truthful, I've tried 4 different ones over the years and none of them helped me. Such is life. I now feel over therapaized (yes I made it up) at the moment. And thankyou for your compassion. It's better having them come to you than being put in hospital
