"Jeanne's Endo Blog": National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Information

THIS POST IS BEING RE-PUBLISHED FROM LAST JUNE AS A REMINDER THAT THERE ARE RESOURCES AVAILABLE FOR ANYONE HAVING SUICIDAL IDEATIONS. PLEASE SEEK HELP FROM PROFESSIONALS TRAINED TO GIVE IT IF YOU ARE HAVE SUICIDAL THOUGHTS. THANK YOU!

Endometriosis pain can reach critical and dangerous levels. I have heard over the years of women who have committed suicide (women who had no other illnesses besides endometriosis).

Here is information for ANYONE who EVER feels ANY suicidal ideations. The info is from a website for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at:

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

“The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a 24-hour, toll-free suicide prevention service available to anyone in suicidal crisis. If you need help, please dial 1-800-273-TALK (8255). You will be routed to the closest possible crisis center in your area. With more than 130 crisis centers across the country, our mission is to provide immediate assistance to anyone seeking mental health services. Call for yourself, or someone you care about. Your call is free and confidential.”

Thank you for reposting. Maybe should repost every once in awhile for reminders to people that the depression associated with chronic illnesses is common and they are not alone in this.

Hi Jeanne;

It is always a good feeling to visit you.

Publishing Information on suicide prevention is proactive. You never know why the thought came to you. Moreover, you may never know whom you helped.

Thanks for the reminder of the sometimes-devastating results that prolonged symptoms of endometriosis as well as other chronic illnesses can materialize.

Be well

Mckay k,

I wish I could say this was totally proactive. Let’s just say this is the best thing I can do when I think someone may be in trouble and I can’t reach them.

If I post this here, then I know I have made the info available. I can only hope and pray that if someone needs this information, they will use it.

It’s nice to hear from you again and I’m glad you’re feeling better. I have been worried about you and I knew you must be really sick.

Alicia,

Depression is extremely common to co-exist with chronic illnesses. I think you’re right that I should repost this more frequently because there are so many people out there who are suffering, scared, and feeling hopeless.

There is help available and I think it’s important to highlight that fact.

Jeanne
