ive suffered from severe depression for years and I take mess for it. A few weeks ago I felt so hopeless that I woke up one morning and <mod edit - methods>. I woke up in the hospital and was then transferred to a psych unit where I spent a week there. I live in a different country than my family so I decided to tell them what had happened. I told my sisters and adult daughter and was met with a barrage of verbal abuse calling me a liar and wanted proof. Then I noticed the three of them on Facebook posting up memes about pathetic liars who can't be trusted. Needless to say, I was devastated by their reactions. The only other suicide attempt I've made was many years ago as a teen. I feel deeply hurt, ashamed, dismissed, rejected, unloved. The ironic thing is that I've always been the one they go to for problems but I get blasted for having a problem. I'm really not sure how to handle this. I feel humiliated being asked for proof.
