Howdy y'all, I am new to these forums - this looks like a great idea, providing support where none previously existed. I've tried help lines but I am immediately taken to the hospital - they think that is the only way to help when all I need to do is talk myself through things. My Dx is Severe Major Depression w/Psychotic features (DSM: 296.34) - I've made a number attempts in the past (two nearly successful). Previously I decided that it was too hard to go through with anything - may as well live and see where it takes me; lately though I've been struggling with my mind over thoughts I can't seem to shake, it's nice to find a place where people talk with other people and provide support (I've heard too much psycho-babel in my lifetime ). I apologize in advance if I seem cold, I am pretty detached from emotion. Hope to chat or talk and see if I can help people, or get some help to get through the hard times. Thanks.
