I do not want ot dye .. it's just like sometimes I think why didn't I just dye then or life is just to hard I don't know if I can take it n-e more .... but then again I realise that I have friends and famillly that although they worry about me none strop they love me and would be hurt if I lived so at the moment I am living for my twined sister and family I don't beleive that I would kill myself but tey all seem worried that that is an alternative ...I don't know what to say to make them see that I don't wan to dye and that I am just depressive.. I was diagnost 2 years ago with depression an it has not gotten furthe in to that I am just always sad but I don't want o dye .. am I in some danger are they doing the right thing by worrying??

What makes you think your therapist doesn't "get it"? If s/he really thought you were actively suicidal, it's highly unlikely you would have just been sent home with a car for your next appointment.

A good therapist is trained in suicide assessment and it is a lot more than just asking whether the individual has had or is having thoughts about suicide.

am I in some danger are they doing the right thing by worrying??
Of course - as long as you are feeling depressed and thinking even casually about suicide, there is an increased risk and people who care about you should be worrying. That isn't a prediction that you are going to act on it -- it's just realistically recognizing that it increases the risk.

Continue to trust your therapist... s/he can help you with the feelings that drive those thoughts.
why am i like this

Why is it that when I see a car accident on tv or hear that someone died or anything like that deep down in me I wish that that perosnne was me... I hold a sharp object in my hands and wonder why I don't have the courage to put it against my chest... I don't want o dye but I constantly fantasies about it ... I feel like I am broken ... impure ... dirty just everything about me is so very rong.... my familly is screwed up.. my father alcoholic ... and the sexual abuse I lived in my younger years everythign points out that I don't deserve to live but I just dont wan to dye and probably will never kill myself ever because I don't believe in taking the easy way out i believe I deserve to seffur but I am tiered of all of this and don't wan to think like this anymore.. I am always tiered and just feel bumbed out all the time all I have time to do is my daily ritual of exercises .. why am i thinking like this what can I do for it to stop ...

Is Hormone Therapy Okay Again? Berkeley Wellness December 04, 2017 Many women hesitate to treat menopausal symptoms with hormone therapy, or avoid it altogether, because of concerns that were raised by findings from the landmark Women?s Health Initiative (WHI) trial on the hormones back in 2002. That clinical trial randomly assigned more than 27,000 women, ages 50 to 70, to receive either oral estrogen plus progestin, estrogen alone, or a placebo for an average of five to seven years...

According to Pinker, we live in an extremely peaceful world and that this is likely the most peaceful time in human history. The evidence that Pinker provides is vast...
