    I am so ashamed, not the fact that I tried to kill myself but the fact that I worried so many people here. For that, I am so sorry & if I can make it up in any way then I will.

    My plan was fool proof or so I thought. But no, stupid me passed out in front of a paramedics house no less! Was taken to casualty, though I was pretty out of it so I don't remember much. They knew I had been drinking but I didn't tell them that I had taken an OD. It took them a while to get any info from me, they never even knew my name as I had left the house with absolutely nothing. I didn't even have a jacket on.

    Eventually I let them call my Dad. My Stepmum & him had to drive over an hour to get to the hospital. They were worried about my heart rate as it was very high, I kept telling them that it always had been so it wasn't a concern for me. After throwing up for what felt like forever I began to feel better. I was eventually discharged after them regarding me as just another victim of Saturday night binge drinking. On the way home, I had a big argument with my parents & got pretty much hysterical, it was all along the lines of 'you don't love me', which is mad seeing as they drove through the middle of the night to come get me.

    I'm at home just now & I feel ok, no after effects. My Dad wants me to go stay with him for a while, so they can 'take care of me' so I need to try & sort stuff out with work & my meds as I'm still on daily dispense. My stepmum is a nurse so she is hoping they can trust her with my prescription.

    I'm 26 but sometimes feel like a 10 year old. I really thought it would work this time, the alcohol & tablets weren't meant to kill me just make me a bit braver for what I was planning. I wish I could say what I done has put me off, but it hasn't.

    Again, I am so sorry everyone.

    Take care, Claire xx

    Hi Claire,

    I'm sorry to hear about your overdose. It's really important right now that you let a doctor know about it so they can check everything is okay, most likely through a blood test. They can then perhaps recommend to you a counsellor of some kind. Your parents should be your main support base, so you should probably come clean with them too about what happened. You shouldn't be ashamed - you just need some help right now, you're only human after all. It doesn't imply weakness or anything else. Please make this first step to help yourself by going to your doctor. There is hope for you Claire, it's difficult to see that now, but it's true.

    Take care
