Ok, so this is a little strange talking about this but I have no one else to ask and I'm sure someone here can offer me some advice. I've been suicidal a while now, I've tried to take my life a few times by<mod edit - methods> enough. I'm sure I have depression because I am constantly feeling down, literally ever day, I struggle to sleep, I only manage maybe 1 or 2 hours a night. I have some very serious anxiety and get nervous and jittery in social situations, im only 27 and I used to be very social and out going but now I don't know what happened, if I wasn't afraid of ending up in a coma or bed ridden being a burden on someone for the rest of my life I would have tried other methods. However I want to seek help and try and stop this before I do it for good. I don't want anyone to know I've tried taking my life so I guess what I'm asking is if I visit a doctor how do they handle it, if they see the scars on my wrist which are very big will they inform my family or have me committed ? I want to keep everything as quiet as possible, people seem to think that if your suicidal you're crazy which just isn't the case. Has anyone seeked help before?
