Maybe they should have said, “Unfortunately, you are braver than we are!” Log in to Reply Abnormal.Thoughts 5/29/2020 - 8:57 pmReally! They proceed to tell you to contact a crisis line. Who said it was a crisis? And a crisis line is fine for a crisis but you don’t use them for long term support. It’s okay though, I didn’t want to pay for therapy anyways and this just made that way easier. Log in to Reply a1957 5/30/2020 - 11:04 amExactly. What crisis? If you have a chronic condition anywhere in your body but your mind, there is no crisis, even if death is the final outcome. But if we have a chronic condition in our mind, and we utter (or type) the “s” word that’s a crisis. Hmm.Three times I have mentioned suicidal ideation to a clinician. Upon mention of the “s” word I observed two clinicians bristle and essentially suggest no further mention of the “s” word. I passed on those two with no further appointments.Upon mention of the “s” word, the last one went into an evaluation of the imminent likely hood of offing myself and decided it wasn’t likely. We built some trust back and forth, as they fear us offing ourselves because it is painful to them and once in a while draws a lawsuit, while we might fear the matter being reported to “the authorities”. “The authorities” is the exact phrase used in the applicable law where I live.Once trust was built on both sides, she became a keeper. Pity life gets to be so hard because people we trusted weren’t trustworthy or some other cause of mental distress. Log in to Reply no name 5/30/2020 - 12:30 amTry this. cimhs . com I personally did. It didn’t help me but it might help you and you don’t need to interact with people. Log in to Reply thehusk 5/30/2020 - 5:34 amThere should be therapists out there willing to work with suicidal feelings – even online. You could check out a therapist directory website. Log in to Reply Abnormal.Thoughts 5/30/2020 - 8:22 amThanks, I’ll check cimhs out. I’m sure there are some that would work with it but this one has been advertising everywhere so I thought I would give it a whirl. I don’t want to discourage anyone from trying themselves, if you try, or lie a little on the questions, I’m sure you can find help even online.
