question about pills. - March 10th 2011, 02:04 AM

How many pills do you need to take to OD, but not die? What kind and how long will it take?

I want to send a warning.

Don't do this, you could accidentally kill yourself even if you intended to OD.

Anything over the recommended dose or prescribed dose is techincally an overdose. No matter how careful you are there is always a risk that it will go wrong and you will end up dead or with irreversible liver damage. ODing is incredibly unpleasant and you will feel like dirt for days afterwards. Depending on what you take you could have seizures. There are other ways to send warnings, I really would not recommend this.

I really would advise against doing this love. Even if you don't die, overdoses can cause problems and handicaps that will stay with you for the rest of your life. You'll never be able to judge the exact amount because everybody's body is different. Please, I'm begging you, if you want to sort things out, look for the right kind of help, not the wrong kind of attention.

I would strongly advise that you don't do this. As said, even if you don't die, you could do yourself some serious damage. Why do you want to send a warning anyway? Isn't there a better, more safer way for you to get your message across?

Like many of the others have said I would strongly suggest that you do not do this. If by some strange chance something goes terribley wrong you could be ending your life, even unintentionally. Please try some other way to get what you want said out there.

If you need help so bad that you want to OD to "warn people", you should seek a counselor instead. Getting mental health help on your own would be more beneficial, as well as giving you more control over your situation, rather than being hospitalized and having limited freedoms.

I need another way to tell someone. I don't want to say anything. I just want to show them. I don't know what else to do.

Re: question about pills. - March 15th 2011, 04:08 AM

Well, a good way can be to write a poem that expresses how you feel (or something similar) or else maybe just write a blunt note. Please don't overdose, hun. Just talk to someone. I KNOW it's scary, trust me I know. But you need to get help.

WHAT is making you feel this way? Trying to get to the core of the issue can help. Try focusing less on dealing with your urge to OD and more on dealing with what makes you want to OD. Make sense?

Please message me or find me in the chat room if you want to talk

Write them a letter so you don't have to say it out loud but you still tell them. Or have someone with you when tell them like a school counselor, a teacher, a trusted adult, someone. But you do NEED to tell them and hurting yourself is NOT the way to get your point across.

Try telling a close friend that you trust. They will then probably tell an adult for you so you don't have to. This recently happened to me and its hard but i'm glad that i never had to say anything. Don't overdose i have done this before and its an incredibly unplesant experience. I know how hard it is to tell someone though but it will feel better once you have
Good luck
If you want to talk feel free to pm me

We'd need your body weight and the type of pills you're taking.
But there's healthier ways to do it, and I'm not going to advocate that. I understand exactly what you mean by wanting to shoot a warning, but what you can do is turn this into an opportunity to help yourself grow and become stronger. Everyone else here has posted great ways to go about your situation.

Why would you even offer to help her figure that out? That is really fucked up. We need to help her find a way to talk it out rather than help her with a false suicide attempt.
