Once medically stable they need psychiatric evaluation to review the crisis leading to the attempt, and whether inpatient treatment is needed. The person may be hospitalized for more reliable diagnosis, and a start at treating the underlying problem. ...Read more

Suicidality tx: I am assuming that you were referring to major depressive disorder with borderline personality disorder. Most of the time when I see these two combined in my practice there is an underlying anxiety disorder such as posttraumatic stress disorder. It is important that you be in therapy and have that addressed. Failure to do that can lead to ongoing difficulty such as you're having now. For people who have chronic thoughts of suicidality and any diagnosis in my practice i often prescribed Hydroxyzine 10 to 25 mg up to four times daily as tolerated. You can discuss that possibility with your psychiatrist. Other options include the use of lithium for its anti-suicidal properties as well as clozaril (clozapine). ...Read more

I tried to commit suicide and did not expect to survive, but I did survive and had to have my leg amputated. Can not forgive myself. How do I move on and live with it? How do people overcome this?

I tried to commit suicide and did not expect to survive, but I did survive and had to have my leg amputated. Can not forgive myself. How do I move on and live with it? How do people overcome this?

I hope we can help.: It's going to be hard, but it can be worthwhile. Forgiveness tends to happen in the background. You may not even realize it's happened — but you just feel better. Dr. Russo's right. You need to find a psychotherapist just right for you and that may mean a few tries. They need to get to know and care for YOU. which takes time together — trust must build. (I'll add more in a comment below). ...Read more

I see & hear things that are not there. I have tried to commit suicide 3 times. I've tlked 2 my doctor and had counseling and meds. What should I do?

Have you told....: Have you told anybody that you tried to commit suicide 3 times? Does your doctor know how bad you are feeling and that you have auditory and visual hallucinations? Did you tell your counselor? They need to know! If they did, they would put you on something instead of or in addition to the Prozac (fluoxetine) which does not usually help hallucinations. Don't give up! Tell them what's wrong! Get them to hear you! ...Read more

Everytime that sept 4 is near, I get depressed and suicidal thoughts. 7 yrs ago I tried to commit suicide that day. Why do I keep feeling like this?

Our minds do this: Anniversaries and commemorations are very human. I can suggest that you honor this important milestone in another way — by feeling appreciation of a 2nd chance and self-esteem in what it's taken to keep going. But I know it would not reach the deep places you need to find without a longer time to explore together so much. I will urge that you find a trustworthy therapist to work through this with. ...Read more
