Jaw Pain making me suicidal. - March 5th 2013, 12:49 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Okay so I have been suicidal for a while for reasons apart from this. However, I also used to have a brace, but didn't use the retainers properly and started to experience problems a while ago because of this, to the point where the retainers no longer functioned. Recently, in the past couple of weeks or so, the problems have moved from being mainly aesthetic (gradually worsening crooked smile etc) to the point where I am in permanent physical discomfort. I finally booked an orthodontic appointment last week, which I should have done about six months ago but I was embarrassed and anxious and kept putting it off (stupid I know). Problem is the appointment is in like three weeks time and I cannot think of anything but the discomfort. It seems to get particularly bad in the evenings and I had been tending to drink a lot as it's the only thing that works (ibuprofen and paracetamol help a bit but not much). I know that the problem will only get worse until my appointment and it is just making me want to take my life much more than before. I think the fact I have autistic spectrum disorder just makes me obsess and stress out over it even more. I just want this problem to go away so I can at least process my thoughts. I'm not sure what to do. Any advice?

Hey, Simon.

Sorry about what you're going through. Umm... Can you make an appointment for as soon as possible and take a friend with you? Or a family member? Or text someone in the meantime or on the way there? That way you won't be going alone with your thoughts. Umm... About your disorder, can you talk to a therapist about these thoughts and things going on?

Hope I helped a bit. Good luck in the meantime. c: I'm here if you need someone to talk to. I'd gladly listen.

Stay Strong <3

I'm sorry to hear you are feeling this way, maybe you could get an appointment for sooner?
