Hello, Forum. Thanks for existing. After many years of off and on depression, I've finally decided to go to my GP, ask for help, and take anti-depressants if they are offered. What I want to know is this: if I'm totally honest with my GP, if I tell her that I've felt suicidal for a long time, I have both a clear plan and the things I need to kill myself, is there a risk that she will section me, have me locked up and treated against my will? Because the thought terrifies me and I'm not prepared to let it happen. Would it be better to downplay my depression, be truthful about everything except suicide, and tell a lie like "well, I think about it, but I'd never do it?" Oh, and I'm in Scotland, if that's relavent.
