Our expert says:
It is absolutely unprofessional for ANY shrink to "go away" without arranging for a locum to cover for their patients in crisis, and if this shrink has a partner to provide such cover --- they must be available in crisis. Sounds like these may not be sufficiently caring shrinks for your needs at present. DO call Lifeline and seek a shrink better concerned with helping people who have crises. DO not allow yourself to think about suicide, especially because in part this is related to your feeling abandoned by people who are supposed to be committed to being available and helpful.
Look after yourself, and don't allow yourse;f to come to any form of harm --- you are capable of doing that, and will be able to find more reliable help. Don't punish yourself because someone else has let you down on this occasion. Permanent responses to temporary situations are rarely a good idea
