    Dr.Goldberg said it best in a post,

    "I must also ask that folks kindly respect the boundary of not tracking down my outside phone numbers or emails or otherwise contacting me with questions about their specific treatment outside of what gets posted on this public website exchange, since WebMD and I are not set up to do that."

    Please do not call, e-mail or try to contact the doctor outside this message board forum.

    I hope this helps

    (trigger) Mstanisha, It would be easier for the Dr. to see your post if you wrote your own post. Up at the top of the board, main page there is a red/orange button that says *Post Now*. Hit that button, put in your topic, then write your post in the box below the topic. Also, if you write about killing yourself, you need to also add *TRIGGER* in the topic as well.

    If you are feeling suicidal, please go to the ER.
    If you keep saying that you can't, then you never will. If you keep saying that you CAN, then you always will.

    Mstanisha,

    I'm sorry you are in a bad place. Please if you are feeling like you need immediate care get to the ER. Please keep these Crisis Assistants links near you as well.

    I think you need to search for help offline as well, although I'm glad you are here and if it helps you to talk things out with us great, but you need to see a doctor as well. Please keep us posted as to how you are doing.

    Dear mstanisha,

    You're describing problems that need prompt medical/psychiatric evaluation, something that an information exchange website like this isn't here to do. The WebMD website can provide support through its membership and can answer general types of medical questions that may come up. If you currently have a doctor, your question to me should be posed to him or her. If you don't have a doctor, and need help locating one, your county mental health service or the nearest hospital should be able to help give you that information. If the problems you are having are new, urgent, or you're concerned you might act on the thoughts about killing yourself, then I would agree with others here that going to an emergency room for an immediate evaluation would be advisable.

    - Dr. G.

    Regarding this post by Dr. G, if someone needs attention immediately, it might be a good idea to contact your own medical professional, counselor, etc. This is in my opinion, although a wonderful source of information and also very helpful, it''s not a substitute for actual medical or psychiatric care.

    An_263127, we can only reply to your posts in this community. If you feel you need help, go to a local hospital emergency room and tell them you need assistance with a serious mental health issue.
