    I sent a text to this girl Im friends with at school threatening to do myself in tonight. She freaked out and I fear the police are going to come for me now. Why do I always make really bad choices like this?

    I don't think it's a bad choice, Amanda. The hospital can keep you safe. :hug:

    Its a bad choice... The hospital can keep me safe but at the same time its going to really mess up my semester at school. So would being dead but still.

    Missing school is something that can be accommodated for a circumstance like this, I think. What year are you in, if that's an OK question to ask?

    I guess that means your first year for this has just started, right? If so, maybe you can wait to enter the program again in the near future when you feel well enough again?

    From past experience Amanda, universities can be really accommodating. Actually, in this case, it will be a really good thing that you talk to a doctor because you will need the paperwork from him to have a leave of absence or a reduced workload without penalty. They will stop the clock and you can resume when you feel better with no black marks on your record. At this point, your health is the most important priority you have to think of. Hope you get all the help you need to get better.

    Say someone else sent the text if you need to.

    Or you were drunk or something.

    Texts are proof of nothing - you get a text off someone - could be anyone really - kids messing - idiots messing - so that is an option.

    If you can cope and this text was a hiccup - next time - tell us here - and we will respect your privacy but would also ask you call an ambulance IF you were really bad.

    so hope that helps.

    Don't worry about it.

    Its nothing really - unless you want it to be- so its your choice either way.


    I'm sure you will be fine - and complete this course.

    what are you doing by the way?

    Good luck regardless!
