    I did talk with sadeyes in chat and it got me through the night, the next day I met with my psychiatrist and told him as much as I could about what I am feeling but we ran out of time, and now he is on vacation for 2 weeks and I dont think I did a very good job of explaining how badly I am feeling, I still felt like I had to "be strong" but it is just a facade. Now I am really alone, feel ashamed still and really dont have any help to get through this horribly dark time. I wish he would have put me in the hospital or helped me come up with a way to stay safe when I feel so very not safe. I dont really understand why these suicidal thoughts are not going away, why they torment me when all I want to do is live my life, but they do, and they are screaming at me. He does have someone covering for him, but I am terrified to actually call that person who I dont know even if I know I need the help. I guess I just can't take any more disappointment. I feel like I am walking in and out of doctors offices and I have this figurative broken limb and no one notices it, or does anything to help heal it. They just say, yes, your limb is broken. See you next week. WTF.

    I'm sorry, I live in IL too... But I'm midstate. It's tough dealing with something only to look outside and it be as gloomy as it is today...

    Anyway, there are a lot of people in the chat that would love to talk, myself included. If you are really worried and need help, don't hesitate to go to the doctor, even if you don't know them.

    I've not seen a doctor yet because I feel weak if I admit I can't handle it. A really stupid "guy" thing. As hypocritical as it is for me to say, it's really important that you open yourself to being helped.

    Yep, this gray depressing weather does not help matters, but at least the snow is melting!

    Still feel stuck and hopeless and alone. About to go cut myself to at least relieve some of the tension, and put the self hate, guilt and shame all into that wound so at least then it is out of my head, i can see it, point to it and say there it is, i told you so.

    I know this may be late but would like to hope that you are ok. Needing the tension release is something I know well.
