    Hello, I am new to the forum. I don't know where else to turn. i don't want to call a hotline because I don't want to be locked up in a hospital. I've had 3 suicide attempts within the last 2 months and I've been hospitalized for those attempts. The hospitalizations made it worse for me. It made me become even more isolated because I feel like if I tell someone how I'm feeling I'll just be tossed away into some place that doesn't help me at all.

    My will to live has severely diminished. I don't know what to do to regain that hope again. I was in therapy for years and it helped a little but I stopped therapy a few months ago when the thoughts came back. I felt like my therapist didn't really understand. As of now I'm in total isolation and even though I have a good support system I'm afraid to reach out to them because I feel like this has been burdensome on everyone. I just don't know where else to turn.

    It is good you are turning here then hun we are listening and we do understand. Therapist hun get a hold of T ok see if you can get back in for a some sessions ok Having that someone there to help you is worth it. I know that sometimes the hospital can seem so cold hun but it is a place that can keep y ou safe keep you from harming oneself hugs

    I'm sorry to hear of your struggle, one that I share with you, but I am really glad to hear that you made it through the attempts... I understand that the hospital can be unforgiving, and at times, seemingly pointless & helpless (at least in my experience). If it did any thing for me once or twice, it would be keeping me from making another attempt, so in this view, I suppose it was a success. If you've found therapy to be somewhat helpful in the past, then perhaps you could pursue that avenue once again, although with a different therapist. I have found that sometimes you've got to go through a few of them before you find one that you sort of click with. If you've not tried it before, medications are always an option as well. Keep talking to people: here, or any where you can find support.

    Best Wishes-

    Hi hun, you say you have a good support system..I say take advantage of it!! Because a lot of people have little to no support, I also think you should go back to your therapist or if they are not listening find a new one, never give up on yourself. :)

    Yeah, Broken, feel free to vent here. No one judges - it's all support. That hospital thing makes no sense, who knows why they go that route? Tell us what's going on. TAlking it out can help.
