Hello all, I attempted suicide on August 23rd 2007. I took <mod edit: Artifice no details please> sleeping pills, drank an incredible amount of alcohol and then jumped off a local bridge. Due to the fact that at 10:30 pm it was low tide and that I took so many sleeping pilss that my heart rate slowed to almost a stop. That is what saved me. I washed up on shore the next day and was found in the marsh around 4:00pm on Friday the 24th. I spent 3 days in a coma in the hospital and then 1 week in the psych ward. I am still coping with the reasons why I tried to kill myself which are a divorce that my wife and I are going through and the custody battle for our son. I am an alcoholic and I attend meetings when I can, but I get what's called "tough love" whenever I talk about my attempt. So it is hard for me to find anyone who will truly listen and not brush me off as psychotic. I am glad I found this forum. I will check it regularly.
