Overdosing....repeat Offender

Most of my emotional mental issues started after April 2002 when I was raped, and double sodomized by 2 men who were extended members of family. I decided to press charges so that meant going through court, lie detector tests and taking the stand. Through the process it became to much and in August of the same year I dumped every medication I could find in my house down my throat. My Dad had many health issues so the amount of medications avail was high.  I remember calling my best friend to tell her I had OD'd, then I passed out.

 

I went to the ER, had my stomach pumped and there were no pysch beds there so I was transported to another hopsital almost 2 hours away.

 

I've done it many times since then. It has almost become a coping mechanism. Xanax I have overdosed on probably 4 times, anti-depressants as well.

 

I'm looking to find help so I can cease this.
