I ODed and I don't know why - March 2nd 2011, 01:21 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I've been on a downhill spiral for months. My Bipolar Disorder has been getting really out of control; my moods have become increasing labile and unpredictable. I had started SHing more often and more seriously. I only narrowly avoided hospitalization in December. It's been bad.

Last Tuesday, in the middle of a rapid cycling episode, I lost it. I don't even remember what I was thinking at the time. What I do know is that I SHed to an alarming degree; there are now almost a hundred new scars on my body. Perhaps even more dangerous, though, was the fact I took a full bottle of anti-anxiety medication.

I told my friends pretty quickly and they rushed me to the ER. They gave me charcoal to absorb the pills. I had to stay overnight due to my heart rate and blood pressure being dangerously low. The next day, of course, I was put in the psych hospital. I got out yesterday, and am not too much better to be honest.

They tell me I would have died had I not told my friends. I would have just had heart failure, most likely after going to sleep. That thought scares me. What scares me more, though, is I don't know why I did it. I told my doctor on the way to the hospital it was a suicide attempt. She says later I said it wasn't.

It really bothers me that I would try and commit suicide and not know why. It scares me that I may do it again, especially because I only feel somewhat better. I'm really worried about myself.

The moon asked the crow
For a little show
In the hazy milk of twilight
No one had to know
The moon asked the crow...
