Alexa Ray Joel is speaking up and out about her overdose last month and she wants to help others who might be suffering what she was/is suffering from.

"I want to help young girls with something I know a GREAT deal about: Heartbreak-Related Depression. Although it does not get much attention in our society, it is a very serious and painful condition that often gets swept under the carpet. I hope to bring this topic more to light."

Alexa tried to take her own life after a bad-break up with an ex-boyfriend that led her to depression.  We have a feeling by helping others, she will be able to help herself.  We are glad she survived and is going back into taking psychology classes.-Dr.FB

Alexa Ray Joel has been released from the hospital after attempting suicide over the weekend. She was being treated at St. Vincent's Hospital after swallowing quite a few pills over a relationship gone wrong.

Billy Joel, Alexa's father, said she "is doing fine" even though the musician did not come to see her at the hospital. He says he did not go because it would be a media circus. One has to think it is something else.

Billy Joel has tried to take his own life a few times before in his past and now may have passed this over to his daughter.  It is a very sad case for father and daughter.  Alexa is a very beautiful woman who is now battling suicidal thoughts and Billy and his ex-wife Christie Brinkley have to be here for her now more than ever.

If you or a loved one are having suicidal thoughts, please reach out to them.

There are several web sites that you can go to including this one that give numbers to contact people in your area.  I care and there are others that do so as well.

Get well soon Alexa. Much Love to you in this tough time and always.-Dr.FB
