"Ian, husband is not doing well." What is it that he is actually suffering from, Louise?
He is suffering from not being able to leave me alone because of my suicidal thoughts. He wants to have a life, doing trips with friends. I feel sorry for him., He feels sorry for himself, and both of us don't know what to do with me. It sucks around here."Ian, husband is not doing well."

Cure him. Fix him. Be his healing. It's time for you to flex your friendly muscles and engage in gentle shoving.He is suffering from not being able to leave me alone because of my suicidal thoughts.

Daffy, I feel bad turn you have had only spells of wellness, that is how I have been the last year. Just a short stint of wellness, a few weeks, then back down again. Each time worse than the one before. Not sure if I have BPD or MDD, I have been diagnosed with both. What's the difference, I have severe depression.Hi Louise hope your doing ok today. I’m another of the golden oldies at 66.
I’ve been ill since I was a child and first dx at 14. But I’ve had spells of wellness and I try to make the most of those times.
It can be very hard for partners to see their loved ones suffering. But you’ve come this far. You know this will pass eventually. If that means a spell in hospital so be it. Your family loves you and will be there to help you
Agree.Age has no bearing on progress out of an undesired mental/emotional issue. Age is worthless in the equation, in fact. As long as you have a mind, you have cognition...the way in which you see the world, and the way with which you respond to, and act on, what you experience. While you're alive, therapy will work, but will fail if you don't force the therapy into place in your life with sufficient determination.
I'm not the one you're disappointing, remember?
How sweet, wish I could hold your hand! I really do feel like giving up though. My husband is stuck here with me, it is horrible for him.Hi Louise,
I am 19 and an EMT. The reason I am writing to you on this forum is to give you some insight. You may have years of wisdom over me, however, through the horrors of the calls I’ve been on, I would like you to hear it from someone else’s perspective. You are loved! I will say it again. You are loved! I have been diagnosed with PTSD recently after being dispatched to a suicide call. I have struggled for a month or so with flashbacks and waking up in cold sweats. To just watching tv and someone mentions suicide and have a borderline panic attack. I have seen a lot being an EMT, however suicides mess me up the worse. You are so loved by your family. Suicide is never the option and sometimes people think about it when they’re going through some stuff, however the pros of life far outweighs the cons. I always tell my patients who I transport for a psych evaluation they are loved. I demonstrate by holding their hand and try to find a silver lining. You are someone’s sunshine! You are the reason for many people to get out of bed and take on the day! Louise please if you ever have suicidal thoughts/actions talk to someone. You can even talk to me, it is not worth it by any means. I don’t personally know you but I love you
Thanks Natalie. I had a brief feeling of myself yesterday after shopping for some clothes, husband took me, so there is hopeHi Louise,
I'm just touching base to check how you are feeling/how you are doing, today?
I do hope that you are just about very much managing.
This is exactly what my husband has been talking about, this should be our traveling time, we have the money and time. But I have been well for only 6 weeks or so in the past year and this is the worst I have ever been. Have yoI'm nearing 70 and have had life-long depression. Well done for getting through life with all the struggles that involves. Our natural death is not far away and it would be a shame to destroy what little time we have left. Time to say 'well done' to yourself, get help and make the most of the time left. It would probably be wise to have a spell in hospital as your depression is severe at the moment. You must use all of that inner strength and will to push through. Please don't give up.
She wants only therapy. She gave me nispnispaRnxiety but my primary problem is depressionWhat does the doc want to do instead of giving you meds, louise?
please excuse any typos my cat is trying to get her arse on the keyboardf
Buspar is for anxiety which isn't s problem as much as depression. Pharmacy grad was good to see her so happy but I didn't do very well. Therapy is the 25th. Can't stand it. Waiting that long.I've never had any luck with Buspar for depression, although I've heard some people say it works for them.
Therapy might be helpful. Mostly it's just talking to the therapist, and they give you new ways of coping, and for challenging the thoughts that are leading you to depression. There are some forms that give "assignments" for you to complete by your next session, but they are only if you feel up to it. How soon are you scheduled for it?
Did it go okay at your daughter's pharmacy school graduation? You must be very proud of her.
