I just signed up to the forum. I'm not really sure what to write, i don't want to write how much pain i'm in, i'm sure you all already know. On saturday i overdosed on paracetamol, it turns out i didn't take enough and just had to let my body absorb it. I'm not sure if i'm glad i'm ok or not, sometimes i wish i'd died and then sometimes i'm happy i'm here. My partner hasn't been very supportive of it, i guess that's his way of dealing with the situation, and because he doesn't understand. I only have one friend who knows and she's the one who watched my kids as i was taken off in the ambulance. Should i let people know about what has happened to me? Will that just make things worse? I can't face going back into university at the moment and trying to act normal but then again i don't want to be overly dramatic by telling people, i'm not an attention seeker at all. To make things worse my mum keeps on calling me and i don't want to pick up because she'll instantly know something has happened. And lastly, how did people feel mentally and physically after an overdose? I've been really tired and just want to sleep, i keep on getting headaches and stomach pains, and i just feel disorientated all of the time. I just can't seem to function properly at all. My memory seems really jaded and i still feel suicidal sometimes, i'm really scared by how easy it was to take the pills. Please help, and sorry i've written so much.
