Default My wife tried to commit suicide last night

I was taking a nap after running a few errands. She woke me up telling me she just took 200 units of regular insulin which is for my diabetes. She is not a diabetic, we both go to counselors and pdoc she has chronic depression. She wrote a suicide note and I immediately called our crisis line. Right now she is hours away at the regional psych hospital. I'm so alone wanting human company missing my wife. I'm not suicidal just lacking any real company. I been so tempted to go visit a girl I used to mess around. Uggg frustrated


Meds:
Lithium Carb 300 mg 2 at breakfast 2 at dinner 1 at bedtime
Busiprone hcl 10 mg twice a day
Effexor hcl 75 mg twice a day
Seroquel 300 mg at bedtime

Wow sorry to hear that. Hope she is doing ok and is on her way to recovery, I know it may be tempting to go hang out with another girl as being lonely sucks but just think about your wife I know you are but fight the temptation you can do it. Hang in there buds

You and ur wife are in my thoughts. I wish your wife hope, faith, recovery and wellness. I caution you to be strong and not go visit the girl from our past. Temptation from the past always pop in our minds. Be strong and ask yourself if visiting her would really help the current situation. The ball is so in your court. You can be a selfless guy that is there for his wife 100% or be "that guy" that cheated.

Your wife is so lucky to have your love. I am so sorry your are hurting over what has happened. I've been there, and put my husband in your current place. Love is a special thing and it heals so much. I wish you and your wife well, Derek.

Sorry you're going through this, Derek, it's so scary. And good job on staying strong. Hang in there, I know the loneliness sucks but you're doing the right thing imho. I would be mad at myself later if I fooled around in your position. It's a serious time, must consider decisions carefully in a time like this. Hopefully you can talk to your wife in the morning, and I really hope she's ok.

I understand you are feeling lonely and the need for human contact. If you were to run around behind your wifes back that would probably be something neither of you could ever forgive or forget. Its best even if she is yours and your wifes girlfriend to wait for your wife to return home. Infidelity is the worst, especially if she is in the hospital sick. Just my opinion, I know how a womans mind works.

tv can be a good distraction. Did you talk to your wife today? Once my son was sent to a hospital 3 hours away, there aren't any adolescent behavioral health units in my county so we always get shuffled around
