I recently attempted suicide by slashing my wrist. I was taken to the emergency room, and placed on a 5150 Involuntary Hold, after which I was placed in a psychiatric ward for 72 hours. I did this because my partner of seventeen years flaunted his new sex partner in my face, even going so far as to have sex in our bed WHILE I was trying to kill myself. I survived obviously, but he could care less if I succeeded. So, if you are trying suicide because you are trying to make someone take notice, do not bother. It will not work.
