Round trip

By Anonymous - 13/11/2021 20:31 - Australia - Adelaide

Today, I got home from hospital after being sent there for suicidal intentions because I'm poor, chronically ill and want out of my life. Five hours later, I was sent home after being given one Valium and a taxi ordered, that I had to pay for. FML
I agree, your life sucks 944
You deserved it 99

I sympathize with your pain. Unfortunately the police and emergency mental hospitalization services can only do so much - As you now know. My personal experience with depression is that it is usually either caused by your situation and how you deal with it or by an internal chemical imbalance that affects your mind. Or sometimes it’s both at the same time which is a double whammy. You are going to have to find another way out of this. If you have counseling services available to you, that can give you a great deal of help. Even if the thing that’s causing you to be depressed cannot be easily resolved, how you deal with it mentally and in practice can make a big difference. Depression has the tendency to feel overwhelming and that can get in the way of actually working on a plan to solve your issues. The first step in solving a problem is to identify the problem and then you make a realistic plan as to what you can do to get on the road to recovery. You don’t have to have a plan at first knowing all the steps you must eventually take - Just figure out what will get you pointed in the direction you want to go. I hope you are able to find the help you need.

Hug for you my friend

How are they supposed to help you? You should probably see a social worker or a fortune-teller.

Try to find a path that will raise you out if poverty by looking for a better job and realizing that great things can still happen in your life. If you are depressed ask a doctor for anti depressants. I hope that you feel and get better!
