Our expert says:
Hello. OK, whatever the underlying problem is, you're feeling awful and finding it difficult to cope. Please don't think of harming yourself and/or your son --- these problems CAN be solved and you and your son can live long and happy lives ahead. But you obviously need and deserve proper expert help. Arrange for an emergency appointment to see a psychiatrist near you, or if you have difficulty finding one, go to any ordinary hospital, where they can arrange for you to see a psychiatrist as an emergency. Maybe they will recommend admitting you for a short time to start treatment and to help you to sort yourself out, and plans can be made for the care of your son meantime. What I recommend would be more efficient than acually turning up at a psychiatric hospital, as they often admit people referred by a doctor, rather than having their own casualty from which they can admit you. Call Lifeline ( number on this page ) if you are having difficulty making the necessary arragements.
Whatever the problem I am certain that you can be helped and that you should be feeling somewhat better in days, and significantly better in weeks. Then you will be able to sort out the broader problems that have been troubling you, and to find the best and happiest way of life for yourself and your son.
