Nancy, I really hope that you don't follow through with it.

I have been depressed for years, fortunately treated successfully MOST of the time. There was a time a month ago, though, when my meds (paxil and lithium) "bottomed out" and i was SO aware of how easy it would be to just find a way to put myself out of my misery.

But I talked to some friends who urged me to talk to my therapist, who urged me to talk to my shrink the next day. And I got my meds adjusted (paxil and depakote; wening off of the lithium) and I feel infinitely better.

So I guess all I am saying is that it's brain chemistry; you are not a bad person; you are a GOOD person. You need to talk to your shrink; if you don't have one, get one immediately. If they give you any shit about how long it might take to get an appointment, tell them you have been feeling suicidal off and on (that's what I told mine). They'll get you in right away then . . .

You are loved, Nancy, and you are really a GOOD person, no matter how bad you feel right now.

Frank
