Advice & Tips: I am always suicidal over the past 16 years. The psychiatrist refused to help unless I was hospitalized because he thought that suicidal thoughts were temporary with me. Was the worst experience I have ever had in my life just based off of the typical way they run things (being away from home, not having my cell phone, not having my OTC nazel spray, etcetcetc). This could be what caused me to give up completely.
