First, thanks for reading this. I feel so alone.

I am filled with shame and insecurity.

I tried to kill myself 2 times this past 3 weeks.  


i am not going to church today, i feel so weird about it.

so not to be such a drag, i am now at the theraputic dose of  an anti- depressant and have energy again.  Thinking this one is helping. I have been through a lot of kinds in the last year or so, that just dont work or make it worse in some way.  Thanks for your time.

The er sent you away? Do you not have a psych inpatient unit or was it full or something? I hope the meds work for you. I have permanent brain stem damage from my attempt. it causes violent body jerks which are noticicble to everyone. Please take that into consideration. (((Hugs)))

I'm glad that this antidepressant is working for you.  You don't have to be ashamed of the suicide attempts.  You never asked for a depression that would hit you so hard.  HUGS

First off lots of HUGS!!!! You sound like a GF of mine, she has been bounced around too. My husband says that he is stable on the Abilify, but they have recently upped it so I have to keep a close watch on him. Mental illness is a very misunderstood illness for outsiders. I have learned so much dealing with my husband and a GF with it being severe. I wish you the best of luck.

I don't think the er should have sent you away so you could attempt again, I kinda feel like they should have helped you more.
