itmatsb replied to friedeggs's response:
Sorry to hear that you are having such a bad time of it. Those are major issues for you to have to deal with. Try to take care of yourself as much as possible through it. Try to take a little bit of time for yourself each day doing something that you enjoy to recharge your spirits. It could be as simple as reading or taking a walk. Take care and feel free to share anything else. There are caring people here as you apparently have helped others in the past. Maybe it's your turn now.

You know that's not true. That's depression talking. And you need help for that ASAP. Go to your doctor and tell them how you are feeling. Go on an anti-depressant. Or increase or change the one that you're on now.

And see about getting therapy as well. You really need to take care of yourself. And your son(s) need you too. But you have to be well enough to provide the support that your child needs. I sure do wish you a recovery soon from the way that you are feeling right now.

itmatsb replied to friedeggs's response:
I'm not sure about everything you are saying above. I'm sorry to hear that your therapist is not giving you enough hours right now. It sounds like you think that your therapist is trying to hurt you and that you're considering ending your life to put your therapist's job on the line. It won't affect their job at all since you are in a high risk group. It won't hurt your therapist other than them feeling sad for you for a short time.

Instead find another therapist to see--even in addition to the one that you're currently seeing, unless you want to cut off your current therapist.

Your life is not about your therapist. It is about your life and your son. You will be mostly hurting your son. Do you feel resentment against your son as much as your therapist? Perhaps, but I know that you love your son.

Again, call your doctor's office ASAP and tell them that you are considering ending your life and how you are feeling. That is very important.

Happy Birthday!!!!

We know you are struggling but wanted to make sure you know we are glad you were born and celebrate you today and everyday.

As you know there are terribly hard days and not so hard days, my wish for you is many, many, more of the not so hard days.

Please do something good for yourself today! Virtually throwing a party and I am bringing the cake.


You are always appreciated here! Happy Birthday to- You!!!!

itmatsb replied to friedeggs's response:
When is your next appointment with your therapist? Is there a way to let your therapist know that you are in such bad shape?

And again, call your DOCTOR--in caps because I can't put it in bold print or underline it.

And Happy Birthday to you!!

Wish we could drive by pick you up and put you in the front seat.

Please reach into your coping and distraction bag to pull out a few things. Start by responding here .

Please be good and take care of yourself, reach out to your therapist. Does the office have anyway to do phone consults. If not and you want to talk call one of the numbers on the crisis assistance link.
