Hi all. On October 6th, my 16 year old daughter took a large amount of aspirin, some tylenol, and the ADD drug Adderall. Ultimately, she passed away just past midnight due to the aspirin ingestion. She lived with her mother (we divorced way back in '91), but actually lived most of her life with me. It was only a few years ago when she expressed the deisre to live with her mom and we made that happen. I honestly believe that it was not my daughter's intent to actually committ suicide. At 4:30 PM, about 3 hours after she ingested the pills, she asked her older step sisters for help. One sister called my daughter's mother, the other called poison control. Poison control informed them that this was a very serious and dangerous situation and informed the sister that my daughter needed to get to an ER right away. My daughter's mother decided she would drive 45 minutes home, wait for her husband, then drive to the hospital. This delay cost my daughter 90 minutes, and eventually her life. She didn't tell the sisters to call 9-1-1. She didn't tell them to take her to the ER. She didn't take it seriously. I'm in pain. I miss her so much. I love her so much. I don't know how I'm supposed to go on. Why didn't her mother call 9-1-1-????? I don't know if this is the right forum to ask, so please forgive me if it's not... but, does her mother's lack of acting constitute criminal negligence???? How the Hell does a parent not call 9-1-1???
