My own mental health has taken many hits over the years from having suicidal 'friends' who kept threatening ODs and sending out messages that caused
everybody to panic. Eventually I took steps to remove these people from my life, because as it turned out none of them were terribly serious about
really wanting to kill themselves, they were just driven to seek attention, and their negative energy was destroying me.
Your post is very helpful...
Anyways, back on topic, it's hard to commit suicide on tylonal, not only is it difficult, but it's also not the most efficient means of doing so. Any
who, I'm sorry but this sounds like this is a cry for attention, because it's um, tylonal. There are much more serious and efficient ways to kill
yourself... Are you in high school? This sounds like something a high school kid would do to get attention.. IMO
Yeah, he's in high school. I graduated a little while back.
You get a clue, don't bite people's heads off because you have a moron for a friend. Personally, I believe you should let him drown in his own drool.
Clean the gene pool out.
If there is a God, hopefully you will go the same way.
Don't tell me what to do. You're nobody.
Some damn genius decides to read the title of my OP, make an incredibly STUPID assumption about my reaction, then starts telling me what to do...
someone, I might add, who's avatar is a chick sucking a tit. You expect me to take that nonsense seriously??
Your "brother" took a bottle of painkillers which could potentially end his life. Your first response is to call 911 and hop on ATS? Get your
god-loving posterior off the damned computer and over to your friend's house.
He's surrounded by loved ones right now. And, as of now, anyone on the planet is more likely to WANT to be his friend than I am. You don't know
anything, so keep your acidic rudeness to yourself.
If anyone needs to get a clue, it is NOT Seiko.
And because you said it, I guess its true.
I went through complete HELL last night... but that makes me evil.
I should coddle my friends for doing this. You got me. I'm evil.
Both of them sound like "drama queens" him for attention whoring and the OP for hopping on ATS instead of hopping a ride to his house, just keep it on
FB from now on Your friend should do some research on Acetaminophen toxicity levels if he really wants to die, the amount for an adult is 7.5-10 grams
or 7500 to 10,000 mg's.
Yeah, I know its fashionable to bash the OP in whatever way you can, no matter the topic of the thread... its a pathetic fad on ATS. But please, stop.
It doesn't make you look cool.
I just want to say, hang in there. I'm really very sorry that your friend overdosed and understand why you needed to vent about it here. I don't know
why people like to jump to conclusions so fast. As far as your friend goes, if he just did it, he'll most likely be fine. They will take him to the
ER, pump his stomach and then it's good old liquid charcoal time to absorb the toxicity. He'll spend the next 24 hours in a suicide watch most likely
and then, he'll either be released or held in a psychiatric ward. He is most likely being taken to the closest hospital so that should narrow down
where he's being taken to. You won't be able to see him for the next 24 hours as he will be on suicide watch.
My fiance and a couple of my bro's friends visited him in the hospital last night, they were even cracking jokes with him, and he was laughing it up.
Glad to know THEY'RE fine.
I thank you for your response... but I don't think my friend was serious with this at all.
He's the fifth "best friend" of mine who's tried to kill themselves.
Really starting to think this was a dramatic plea for attention, and I'm seriously wondering how I'm gonna continue being his friend. I completely
fell apart last night, and over nothing. He's perfectly fine now.
I can't have people purposely screwing with my head like this...
Considering not talking to him anymore.
Almost considering deleting my ATS account again... some of you insensitive trolls remind me why I give up on most people in the first place. Because
you're damaged and jaded, you've gotta kick other people while they're down... well, you know what?
Yes, I know, I'm evil for having feelings. I terribly regret making this thread now.
Kinda regret ever having friends in the first place.
