I'm just walking on fine lines and emmersed in even more painful anguish.... EVERYONE is distraught because their loved one is suicidal or attempted yet after the attempt, family and friends are the first to turn away and alienate us. It's been 4 months since my attempt and I feel worse than the initial feelings before the attempt. I've lost 99% of my friends-you could say 100% now, lost my job and getting yelled out from family for being "draining." I'm very amazed at how a suicide attempt can cause people to hate and alienate us. I finally found a psychiatrist who wants to actually treat me after being rejected so many times. He said these words "You're not going to be an easy patient for me...." Just validates what I've known all along of myself. Frustrating.....venting a little here.
