I know that if you try to commit suicide you can't join the military. Obviously yeah, this is a suicide forum I've been a member of for awhile and I have "tried" before but never been to a hospital or anything or had it on record. I haven't been suicidal for years. Until last year. But I didn't try to commit suicide that time. My husband and I got into a fight and he basically called the police on me and used old texts where i had said I didn't want to live or something along those lines. So the police forced me to go to the hospital where I was put in the intensive care unit for 24 hrs while they accessed me. They could have kept me for a lot longer than 24 hrs but because I basically told them no I wasn't suicidal, and wasn't hurt at all, didn't even have a scratch, and that my husband was just doing it to get me out of the house because he wanted a divorce, they let me go. Is this really going to stop me from doing the one thing I've wanted to forever?? I don't know if it makes any difference but all the paperwork they gave me I said the same exact thing, I wasn't suicidal or depressed and was there because of my husband. Honestly, Ive been a happy sane person since I got out of the old house with the mom and brother where I was being emotionally abused. But the thought of not being able to do what I've always wanted to...just makes me depressed all over again.
