    I've overdosed several times.

    The last attempt was about a year ago. I took 70 extra strength Tylenol. There are times i wish that it would've killed me. I've been to a psych ward. It doesn't help, in my case it made it worse

    I've thought about overdosing before,

    but never brought myself to doing it. Does it hurt? I've heard it does. I never thought it would though, I though it would be like fainting. Where you go drowsy and just slowly fall asleep, but unlike fainting- you just won't wake up.
