Default Re: Not sure I'm going to make it

I went for assessment today at the outpatient day treatment program. They are starting me with full days 830am-230pm Monday thru Friday. I also talked to my insurance company I will be going on short term disability and have a claim for FMLA to help protect my job. Feeling so tired this evening and not sure any of this will work or help. I guess I will see???? Still feeling hopeless, suicidal.

Update: completed the first day yesterday, orientation, nurses, psychiatrist, counselor, groups all overwhelming, was very tired last night. Started new meds for depression, anxiety, and sleep and pain. Will see how things go today. Go back Monday then Tuesday is a break b/c of holiday. Work is very supportive. Thoughts are still dark and randomly swing back and forth between hopeless and I might be ok?

Got out of the house this am and walked 1/2 mile. I use to walk 4 miles a day. Guess something is better than nothing at this point. My friend called and we went out to another friends and spent about 1 1/2 hours in the pool. It was nice to get out of the house, tired and other than feeling a little foggy after I started the new depression med this am and had a headache on and off but not constant all day, so bearable-I haven't had suicidal thoughts. Took the sleep med 1/2 hour ago, so hoping to rest this evening. Thanks all for support and listening thru this.

Thanks for checking, you have no idea how much it helps. Today, still having suicidal thoughts. Today is 1 week in the outpatient day treatment program. I feel good there, comfortable, safe but when I come home it is like reality sets in and my thoughts go back to, "I don't want to live". I have finally slept 8 hours the past two nights and that helps and the meds the dr started me on have finally leveled out no more side effects: headaches, dizzy. I have seen the counselor 3 days the past week, I think that is helping, I am just scared right now to believe in getting better. I think I will be there thru end of July. So, today I will focus on just today. Thank you, again for checking.

They need twice as many beds to cover the need out there. Unless your brought in having already attempted, chances are you won't get a bed going into an ER.
Your best bet, I believe, is to try and see a psychiatrist. They will be able to get you into a psych ward. Unfortunately a regular ER is ill equipped or has the know how to deal with " just a suicidal ideation case ". If you REALLY wanted to die you wouldn't be here right now. Like was said , hold on to that small little part of us that really wants to live. Like you said, after taking your meds and a few hours later you are feeling better. Don't give up 5 minutes before the miracle.
God bless and we are here for you.
