My husband is suicidal

I came out to my husband after 20 years of marriage. He is a mess and doesn't believe that I could possibly be a lesbian. He is the sweetest guy and i feel terrible for him. I believe he is suicidal and I'm not sure what to do at this point.

I would call a Doctor. If he is suicidal he needs help and to be kept safe.

I think that you need to give him some time to digest all the information, I wouldnt honestly of thought that hes likely to go about killing himself hes proberly very very hurt at this minute. Though I could be wrong.

You should come right out and ask him if he is suicidal. It won't make him think of it for you to mention it. If he says yes either go to the nearest hospital or call your local helpline.

'Just' be there for him, let him talk if he wants to. It is a lot to take on board and he must be feeling pretty shell-shocked by it all and a classic response is to deny it all. Give hime time to work through the stages of loss; Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
