Hi guy and girls, about me - i am a 32yr old male with a fantastic 2yr old son and a amazing partner. for some unknown reason (just life in general sucking) i attempeted suicide on monday morning with <edit methods> and a bottle of red wine to wash it down. obviously i am still here, but after a truthful talk with the phyciatric nurse at the hospital i was admitted to, i was the sectioned under section 37 of the mental health act (UK Law). Now when i spoke to the phyciatrist she was probing thoughts that go through my head. one thought i openly admitted that i thought about killing my partner by running her over. it was just a fleeting thought after an argument or something or other. anyways i thought that most people have these or similar thoughts now and again, the only difference being that crazy people actually follow them through where as i have never done such things apart from my suicide attempt. The phyciatrist insisted that this was not a normal thought process? what are your thoughts? I was released from the Royal Edinburgh hospital yesterday, but after a family member laughing at my suicide attempt i felt the need to go back to hospital for a voluntary stay, for my own protection as i was feeling even lower than before my suicide attempt. Now i am back home, i still feel so low but my mindset seems to be getting worse. I had to switch the television off earlier as everything that was on or being said felt like it was making me go crazy. I have never and still dont think of myself as being crazy, always lead a fairly normal life. Things just seem to be snowballing, my earlier thoughts were of strangling my partner?? i just dont know whats going on? I have a fairly sensible head on at the moment, even enjoyed some time with my family today and laughed a lot. it just seems i am up and down for no reason. I have toyed with the idea of another suicide attempt, although i realise that thats not the anwser. I also believe that <edit method> would not do the job, thats what i procured for the process???? I dont know the anwsers and hope that someone here may have been in a similar position and can offer advice. I really need some advice on wheter i should go back to hospital (which by the way made me feel worse, some really strange people on the ward i was in) or what other options or advice can people give. I do have outpatient visits arranged to see my phyciatrist, but they are not for another week. also when i telephoned the phyciatric emergency and my hospital, they just told me to go back to sleep (great that as they know i am having trouble sleeping). I dont know what to do and feling so low makes it hard to think straight. Anyone?????
