    i have done 3 suicide attempts. The last one was really dangerous and almost lethal. I stayed in coma for more than 24 hours. I keep remembering some details of the time I was awakening (like doctors asking me my name and if i knew where I was) and I also had a terrible pain in the middle of my chest. I don't know why was this.

    They told me I arrived on Glasgow 5 scale but I am not sure what this means. I just need to understand more what happened to me.

    You can read about it there.
    Once, I was on a ventilator and on kidney dialysis for 3 days. Another time they had me sedated in the ICU but not on the ventilator for the 3 days. It's not particularly glamorous. Not fun. If you really want to know about what happened, you can always request your medical records.
