I know it's hard to judge what a person is really like online but I have been with him for almost 7 years and have watched depression and anxieties take him over...right now he feels like giving up. In my journal this morning, I wrote that I had managed to get him an appointment with a doc at the mental health place that he has been going to since his suicide attempt in 2004. I wish I hadn't because she tore him apart. She told him that he was a bad parent and that she didn't care that he couldn't go outside...she made him feel like he has to get better or they won't help him anymore. She doesn't know how sensitive he is and how he has been so sad that he's been crying for days...she doesn't see how he is with his kids, how tender and loving and understanding he is...she doesn't know that he ripped up the prescription that she wrote for him...she doesn't know how lost he now feels and how he has lost all hope of getting better. He woke up this morning with hope in his heart...he prayed most of the night and didn't sleep much...now I don't know if he's going to make it...he is completely devastated...if anyone could please send some words of encouragement or advice I would be truly grateful. I told him that maybe some of u guys have experienced therapists or psychiatrists that were downright mean.

I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
