Hi, I've gotten desperate enough that I'm willing to talk to someone face to face about my suicidal feelings. I'm worried my doctor will be allowed to break confidentiality, or have me institutionalized. What are the laws concerning suicide, and doctors responsibility to patients? I tried to kill myself 3 days ago, but as I started too lose conssciousness I stopped the "suicide machine". I still have this "machine" and easy access to a quick painless suicide. Could my doctor respond by breaking confidentiality, or having me institutionalized? Thank you, I don't know what I'd do without this forum.
