I feel the exact same way. I had a hospital visit that required me to wait 16hrs then be quizzed by the "psychiatric team", it was likeThere is NO ONE to talk to about this subject. Family and friends if people have any, cannot be expected to understand, acknowledge or deal with the guilt that these conversations entail. There are no mental health professionals available. I have been under mental health for over 2 years and I see NOBODY. Talk to NOBODY and at best get an answerphone message when I call the CRISIS team. WHERE are people like us able/safe to talk about such things other than here?
"Are you aware we have to say something if you're of harm to yourself or others?"
"What brought you here today?
"Are you safe in your house, who do you live with?" etc etc
"Yes, fine, all good, great"
"Do you have a plan?"
"What is it"
"Don't wanna tell ya"
"So are you going to act on this plan?"
"Within the next 48hrs?"
"Probably not no"
"okay well here's the samaritans and other numbers if you feel bad or want to talk"
"no they may ask for your location and send in emergency services if they deem you as harmful to yourself or others"
crisis person visit my house only to say I'd get 'discharged' from them within 2 weeks, they were helpful in that I wasn't alone, visited every 3 days, but couldn't actually DO anything.
So I come here to a community of very nice and supportive people, and the govt wants to shut it down...it's insane
I want to steal this btw! Just in case my family tries to blame this site or any other communication:
I personally came to this site having already made the decision to ctb.
This site has in NO way whatsoever encouraged, coaxed, coerced or suggested for me to end my life, if anything it’s the opposite. People that don’t consider suicide would not actively seek a site such as this in my opinion.
I wanted to seek information on how I can end my life (previous attempts) with dignity and as peacefully as possible if anything to spare my family and friends a little of the pain of me passing in a more brutal fashion.
