    I used to overdose 1-3 times a month

    for a couple of years before I went to hospital for 12 weeks and came out feeling a lot better. I probably overdosed more often than that because I didn't always go to A&E. I overdosed mostly on one particular prescription med as it made me feel out of it and disconnected from...

    Ecstacy. I took way to much and didn't drink enough water. I started throwing up in my friend's bathroom and my brother found me almost dead on a bathroom floor. He called 911 and I woke up in the emergency room almost dead. I can't even imagine how this must have felt for my...

    November 4, 1987, when I was fifteen.

    I took 43 extra-strength Tylenol during my sister's piano lesson, and went to sleep hoping not to wake up. If there had been internet, I probably could have found out beforehand that death was an unlikely result. As it was, I woke up puking early the next morning, my Mom took...
