At this point in time, I'm not actually going to commit suicide because of how much it will hurt my family. I don't want to be admitted and I'm not that much of a harm to myself to be admitted but I am afraid that they will do it anyways. Is there things I can say, certain ways to explain it, or a certain way to put it when I tell my therapist? If I tell them, will they admit me?
