I thought this was timely. It's National Suicide Prevention Week here in the US, September 9 through September 15. You can get more information at www.healthyminds.org. Another website that you may have seen has a suicide prevention page, http://www.metanoia.org/suicide/, that starts out like this: If you are thinking about suicide...read this first. Then there's www.hopeline.com, with the 1-800-SUICIDE hotline some of us helped save last year. They're still taking donations, if anyone who's interested wants to log on there. When you call 1-800-SUICIDE, you are connected with a certified crisis center in your area. But, if you want a handy clearinghouse-sort of site, here's one that lists many crisis hotlines: http://suicidehotlines.com/I am having my good moments, but not whole good days yet. I'm feeling impatient. I hope it doesn't take the full month I was warned about for this medication to take affect. Thanks for hanging in there with me.
