    I OD'd. I thought the hardest part of it would be forcing myself to swallow them - but I had enough willpower to do that. The hard part was forcing myself to wait for it to happen, so I ended up calling myself an ambulance.

    It was an awful, humiliating experience. I upset quite a few people as well, and I hate what I did to them. I also disappointed a few. I don't intend to do anything like it again. The whole thing was incredibly embarrassing, and of course I regret it, but the experience turned out to be a good one, based on the outcome and the things it made me realise. I have a lot more hope now.

    I hope others who suffer suicidal thoughts try to listen to the incredibly quiet voice in the back of their mind telling them NOT to do it. I wasn't being rational, despite how rational the thoughts seemed at the time.

    Hope you guys stay safe.

    Thank you both. :)

    It was an awful experience, and of course I regret it, but it was a big eye-opener and in a way I'm glad it happened (or didn't.)

    Definitely learned my lesson. Felt awful, physically and emotionally but it did have a good outcome.

    So glad that your ok hun:) I'm happy that it gave you hope and you realize that you have the gift of a second chance. Even if you find yourself feeling down again, reflect on your experience and keep fighting.:hug:

    Thanks, Lost_Daughter! :hug:

    I hope I'm able to look back on this experience and stop myself, should I ever get to that point again.

    But things are a lot brighter right now. :)
