Red face Update/ How do I prevent suicidal thoughts? - May 10th 2015, 03:10 PM

In March I tried to kill myself, once again I failed. My arm was all gashed up and I went to the hospital and they sent me to a mental hospital. Then I was put on medications, and I saw my new therapist for the first time on this past Monday. But I ran out of medications and my mood and anxiety have been a roller coaster. My suicidal thoughts come every once and a while now, but when they come they are super hard to fight back. Its a living hell, cause when I start to fight against these thoughts, My anxiety skyrockets and I get anxiety attacks.. How can I help prevent suicidal thoughts

You should tell your therapist that you ran out of your medicine and maybe can suggest who you should see to get more of it. Especially if it was working for you.

It's difficult to say for sure exactly how to combat suicidal thoughts (especially when coupled with severe anxiety), as everyone is different, but I agree with the above poster that you should definitely tell your therapist how you are feeling. They can provide you with the proper medication and possibly help in other ways as well. Best wishes.

I really think you should refill your pills because it seems like they were working for you. You also just have to fight through the suicidal thoughts. Reach out and talk through them, write down all your feelings, thing like that.


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Hey there,

Like everyone else has said, it sounds like you need to get a refill on those meds, especially if they were helping. Are you being honest with your new therapist? Is she aware of the thoughts and panic attacks?

I hope you get the help you need, nobody deserves to feel so low.

Please take care.

In your own way, you’re out there fighting as hard as you can,
even if other people can’t tell by looking at you.”
