Dear What to say
No he won't - he will just take you seriously! Tell him exactly how you feel - especially regarding your sleeping patterns, eating patterns, energy levels, emotional feelings, and it is important to tell him about the suicide thoughts. You are "mad" if you feel like this and don't realize it! Knowing that there is a problem and that you want to try and get help for it is the "normal" thing to do. Thinking of you and praying for you - if I may. Keep me posted.
