    How do I tell my doctor that everytime I pray that I won't have to face my life in the morning. How do I tell her, all I want to do is hide under blankets and not deal with people.

    I go see her every week, but haven't been able to tell her just how much I want to escape sometimes. I just can't seem to put it into words when I see her, yet I know I need help. I just dont know where to begin to ask her.

    I know it's really difficult to open up to people sometimes about these issues but you really need to let her know because she cares about you and wants to help. Maybe you could sit down and write a letter explaining how you feel before your next session.

    I agree with butterflygurl. Before you visit her, write or type all of your feelings, everything you want to tell her and give that to her in your next visit. I know how you can feel nervous when seeing her face to face and not want to tell her everything. But its good to let her know everything that is going on, everything that you are feeling so she can help you as much as possible. I don't think you have anything to lose.

    My major problem is not opening up to anybody, (not even this wonderful forum where there are people just like me!) about my depression and thoughts of suicide and thus why its been the same for three years and hasn't gotten any better and I've made little to no progress. I only visited a therapist for a short time but I quit after I wasn't able to open up to him. :sad:

    I hope things go well for you in your next visit. :)

    It is important that you do let her know how you are feeling and what your thoughts are. Writing them out can be a helpful way to pass off the information. i have an e-mail address for my t and I e-mail her with things like this. It gets thngs out in the open to be discussed when I feel I can do it. I hope you are able to find a way to tell her. :hug:

    You are, just like me, a victim of the Western religion and idea. It takes time to get over it. Msg me privately and I will give you a video link to help you regain some peace.

    Forget about the Western religion/moral shit. There is ACTUAL happiness and peace out there. You gotta forget about all that fake shit.

    Well, you do need to remember that this is not something she's never heard before. Therapists exist to help you with these problems, like peanut butter exists to help your hunger. Terrible metaphore, but whatever :laugh:

    You just gotta find the comfort level into telling your therapist. She won't throw you into a nuthouse unless you distinctly say you're gonna suicide as soon as you leave or something like that. Just say "I'm suicidal" not "I have a suicide plan"
