    Recently I've been visiting a psychiatrist but I've found they havent helped me whatsoever, they dont take me seriously when I say I'm depressed because I find it hard to talk about, then they seem to think I've told them everything yet I've hardly told them anything atall because they make it so hard. I feel that the only way I can get them to do anything is to attempt suicide because anything besides that goes in one ear and out the other and then I have to wait weeks until I next go there. This whole week I've been so close to just putting the rope around my neck and doing it. What can I do? I'm stuck :sad:

    I have to say that attempting suicide is not a good way to get people to listen to you, in my experience. However, persistance, knowing what you want to say and saying it continually until they get the message is a better way. So too is having someone to speak for you, be it an advocate, a friend or family member cos for some inexplicable reason these people seem to listen more to others rather than to us. But attempting suicide is a bad idea... it doesn't make them listen and, of course, it could potentially backfire and you could die.

    This person your going to to seek help, seems to be only in it for the money.
    Try finding some one else who can understand you better. A more attuned psychiatrist. :dry:

    psychiatrist go to schooling and study the causes and effects of the mind. This does not mean that they can 100% understand everyone.

    I have the same problem. When someone asks me
    'Tell me about what's bothering you, what are you thinking.'

    I can't. It comes out as if nothing is wrong at all.
