    I attempted an overdose for the third time in 6 years. This last one landed me in the hospital for 4 days which is not too bad. Last July landed me for 3 weeks. Personally I have found that overdosing is just not reliable so I think I will put that method to rest.

    I hope anyone that has or is considering overdosing, re-examine what you are doing. It has a low success rate from what I read on this site, on the web and my own experience. I will say that after each attempt I do seem to do better for a few weeks before the depression overtakes me again.

    It would be nice if I could find a way to feel better without such drastic moves. It only took me about 2-3 days to feel the drugs leave me. I suspect I have done some liver damage with these overdoses.

    Good luck to all suffering from attempts and those considering them. I hope you are able to find another road to follow that will keep you alive.

    Hi mem, saw your post and felt the need to respond. I know you have suffered far more than your fair share and I know you have had to take two steps back on this never ending ride of life but I think you did the right thing. It seems now you have time to collect your thoughts and move forward even if it is at a snails pace to begin with. I believe in you and your strength to overcome your hurdles, you have conquered so much but struggle in the war for all the battles you are forced to face but I don't believe for one second that you were destined to fail, you have an inner strength that has kept you alive so far and I have no doubts that it will continue to do so in the coming battles. If you ever need a friend, just drop me a pm,
    Your Friend
