Back story goes something like this. I had a friend at work, and I really valued his outlook and advice on a variety of different topics. I even viewed him as a father figure (he's 30 years older than me). One day I was talking to him about several problems (I cant remember what they were, but it was about 6 months ago), he told me (in now uncertain terms) to kill myself. The problem is... I cant get over it. I see him everyday. We work in the same office. I'm not sure why he would say this unless it was in my best interest. Every time I see him at work it hurts. Anxiety, shame, sadness all come over me, and its affecting my ability to work. Every morning on the way to work I hear his words echoing in my head... every time i see his face its a reminder of what he said to me that day. Emotionally, I hurt everyday, until i leave work, sometimes after... I keep thinking about it, and I cant get it out of my head. Maybe I just need a vacation... How do you handle situations like this? I mean WTF am I suppose to do? I don't really have anyone to talk to about this stuff, except my therapist... but she kinda wants to send me to the hospital... I'm not sure if its for the best.
