Adjustment Disorder with Depressed Mood, here (I used to remember the DSM number — doesn’t matter, probably changed in the last revision). Yup, a Good Week is one where I only have a few days thinking about suicide; a week is pretty much daily; a Bad Week is all day (haven’t had one of those for a few years). It’s just how I am. But I don’t mention this to anyone because yes, The Stigma, and people will overreact despite me assuring them that my last attempt was a long time ago and was poorly done.

Keep preaching, Pam!
