Taking too many pills can damage your kidneys and liver and it always has the chance of causing enough damage to cause them to fail and in turn kill you. I see that you are new to the site so you may not have seen the alternatives thread: www.teenhelp.com/alternatives There are so many choices of different alternatives on here that are better than self-harm. I am a self-harmer as well so I know how difficult it is but try some of these, if you find that one doesn't work move on to the next until you find one that helps. If you ever need to talk feel free to message me.

Hey there.

I can assure you, you're not the only one who's had these thoughts, or acted on them. But thoughts aren't actions, and in this case it would be advisable to remember that. Just because you think about overdosing doesn't mean you have to do it. You can learn to ignore the thoughts. The link to alternatives that Nicole posted could be very helpful.

Overdosing is definitely very dangerous. Sometimes the effects are immediate, but sometimes they take time to manifest themselves. So you could feel perfectly fine, but inside the pills are damaging your internal organs, until you have liver or kidney failure. Imagine finally overcoming self harm, only to find that you've caused irreversible damage to your liver or kidney. I'm not trying to scare you with exaggerations; I'm trying to help you see how dangerous what you're doing is.

The chances are that overdosing will hurt you in some way, especially if it's a repeated occurrence. And the fact that you're willing to do this to yourself suggests that there's some deeper issue, which I'd highly recommend discovering and dealing with.

Have you talked to anyone about this? It would be very beneficial if you did. You don't deserve to feel this way, and you deserve to get help.

Good luck.
