I've keep staring at a bottle of pills I know should kill me if I take all at once since yesterday. I can't go to a mental hospital because the ones around here suck. I tried taking about what I was going through because talking helps and was told the action was dumb. I said agree to disagree hoping they would drop it. then they kept trying to convince me and told me I took it the wrong way. I tried to explain that I accept that is their opinion but it feels like they are devaluing my experience. so they blocked me.

      @IzzyDark666 not all medication is addictive. The bottle of pills I was thinking about taking wasn't addictive it's just capable to overdose.

      Mental health sucks but keep hanging in there just try not to take medication because it doesn't help and it makes it worse with addiction and can make you rely on it all the time

        @km52 I didn't know what that was so I looked it up googled said this... "Most people with Hashimoto's disease take medicine to treat hypothyroidism. If hypothyroidism is mild, though, no treatment may be needed. In that case, regular testing to monitor thyroid hormone levels usually is recommended." So it's a good thing it hasn't progressed enough to need hormones treatment but you should be getting monitored according to this info. However I can't say it's accurate information since it is just a Google search. If your able to maybe seek a second opinion or see a specialist.

      That person may have blocked you, but it doesn't mean you don't have people that care about you. Even if it's the cashier/waitress somewhere you shop/eat regularly. Even if, at this moment, you don't have a story system, doesn't mean it will always stay that way. If I had ended my life 8 years ago instead of asking for help, I would never have met my now husband, or had the chance to put together an INCREDIBLE support system. I was discussing the effects of taking your own life with my therapist in the context of my grandfather. He felt totally alone, and his death affected so many more people than he could have realized. My therapist pointed out that studies have shown that, when someone ends their own life, it affects over 100 people in multiple generations. People you would never expect are affected. I'm so sorry that you're in a place where you feel so alone. Instead of a mental health hospital, are there day clinics? My medical office also has a behavioral health department that accepts state insurance. Maybe, instead of a hospital, you can find a therapist you vibe with? I'm so sorry if none of this was helpful, but, even though we don't know each other, I'm here for you. You're not totally alone. Oh, I've also had good luck in online (Facebook) support groups.

      I also have medication I'd like taking all at once. I know I would die, and that's the expected outcome, but it is dumb. I don't want to leave my husband behind, but I want to die. It would be really dumb of me to kill myself knowing who I'd leave behind, with unanswered questions. I'm sorry to tell you I agree with your friend that the action is dumb, but the reason behind the action is not dumb and is, in fact, serious, so if you need a likeminded person to talk to im here

        @tiramisu but I wouldn't be leaving anyone behind.

          @rainbows1 you would be. Everyone you've ever known would have you on their mind when they find out. Everyone who has said something mean about you or to you will have a pit in their stomach for at least a second with the thought that they could've been a cause of it. You would be so dearly missed by your teachers, coworkers, doctors, and you'd leave them wondering if they could've done more. Your mind is thinking like this now, but its only your thoughts, you can't know how other people will react so you are putting the thought there, a very false thought that you're alone when you're not. I promise
