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
