    Hugs ffrenchie, I haven't commented before but have been following you along the past few days. Maybe being admitted to the hospital for a few days might be helpful although there is no mental health staff if night give both you and dh some time to recharge and take a deep breath etc. hugs I can't understand the pain you must be going through I hope you get the help you need ASAP.

    Suicide risk assessment can be pretty crude and impresise but if you're able to describe any planning around method and intention tben it could help...our mentsl health system is terribly flawed

    Can we do anything for you? Do you need someone to whisk you away? Do you need someone to yell at a Dr?

    It's not the presence of suicidal thoughts that is the main focus of assessment...it's mostly the planning, intention and lethality around it.

    Suicide risk assessment can be pretty crude and imprecise but if you're able to describe any planning around method and intention that you are experiencing then it could help...our mental health system is terribly flawed The sad incident in Coolum is just the latest and saddest evidence of this.

    You really, really need to back yourself and push for support...which you're doing well...

    Yeah that's what my husband said to them and I agreed and they may let me but said I am most likely too high risk for this hospital.....but too low risk for the bigger one??!?? I just told him if I get sent away I have enough opiates to do myself in or at least seriously harm myself. The lengths you have to go to omg.
