hi felixbabble

i believe in being totally honest with T that's the one promise i made to myself. HOWEVER, i went through many T's with just initially meeting kind of feeling them out. some are hypersensitive and would rather throw you to the H rather than take a risk. so my advice here would be to ask your T what would constitute him advising you to go to the hospital, this way you know what he's looking at AND it's good for you to recognize these signs so that you DO get help when needed.

i've been in hospital several times mostly anymore it's like the justice system...a revolving door, the average stay is 2-3 nights mostly they look at your medications, do some adjustments and ask you how YOU think your doing. But please be honest, cuz that really is the best place to play around with getting you the right medication in case of severe side effects.

the T i have now we can openly talk about when i'm feeling suicidal...i was doing it so much when i first saw him that he made up a contract. he and i agreed we wanted to make it work with outpatient treatment but this way i had some guidelines and he had a legal safetynet. it basically lists things to do, the last two are -call him the very last one is go to hospital, they evaluate you (don't always admit you). but then you're seeking help and becoming more self sufficient and healthy.

i think it's important to discuss the ways you think about it, sometimes talking it through makes it more real and makes it not as desireable.

other things to try:
journal it, get VERY descriptive, every last detail-ddon't just write the physical description also include how you are feeling emotionally through each step of it. if that doens't help if your' artistic (or even if you aren't) try to draw, or paint how you feel, write a poem.
maybe even bring it in to discuss it if you feel comfortable.
