To whom it may concern, I guess I'm desperate. I just found this site while looking for help. I have not felt well for awhile, and my MD thinks it's depression. Well I am so frustrated I could lose it. I know there's something wrong medically, but I do not know where to get help. I am an LPN and I know when I am not felling well, but getting the right help is driving me crazy. This is a very bad day, I'm contemplating suicide. This has gone on long enough, I'm tried of feeling sick. This is no way to live. This intially was a medical problem which has now escalated into a mental health problem as well. All I would like is to find out what's medically wrong, and the mental health would be eliminated. This is all I can say for now, I'm a mess either this will help or fall on deaf ears, whatever. Thanks
We would like to help,but can't be sure where to send you without more information. If you are sure it is medical, you must pursue it beyond what your current doctor says. It is correct to get consultation...there are specialist who can find out what is going on with special tests that are not available to the general physician. That is what you need to do. And of course, you can't give up, no matter how discouraged you are. Let us know how you are doing...and if suicide thoughts are as strong today as they were when you posted this, you should go to the emergency room or request an emergency psychiatric consultation.
I don't think anyone would turn a deaf ear to your plea. I don't think we understand. Do you know from medical authorities that you have a medical condition, or do you say it is and the doctors say it is depression? You didn't mention your symptoms. I wish we knew more. Please do not despair. I have been there but I am feeling good now.
