Thank you for taking the time to write in with your situation. I strongly encourage you to talk with a licensed mental health professional. Although your physician may be right that you are "just exhausted" I am concerned that you wrote "I think it would be best I am not around any more." It is true that sometimes people say things like that as a way to express how overwhelmed or in pain they are...and sometimes they really mean that they do not want to be alive any more. Please make an appointment with a licensed mental health professional as soon as possible. If you are feeling suicidal then you need to go to your local emergency room to be evaluated and to get the support you need.
