Job
Am I a coward? My job is a mess and I’ m getting deeper and deeper into trouble. I see no way out of this mess, but to end my life. I don’ t feel suicidal, but the way things have been going at work, I’ m going to lose my job. I’ m totally responsible for the mess. The harder I try to worse it becomes. It is spiraling out of control. I’ m not depressed, but I know quitting my meds. would push me into it. Talking about the mess is not going to make it go away. I’ ve even asked some people at work if they are interested in my job. I have to make a decision soon. I might even be a little high at the moment. I can' t sit still and I' m talking too much.

Oh come now. Maybe it is indeed a lousty job, but ending your life is no solution to anything --- its another problem. Talking about the mess with a counsellor won't make the mess go away, but WILL help you to sort it out more effectively. And NEVER make any serious life decision while wither unusually high or low. See your prescribing doc / shrink for a further assessment, and do NOT leave your job at this stage
