Home Family & Friends Effects Pills
Report Post

I am a 14 year old teenager, depressed and suicidal. I know this may sound stupid but does anyone know any pills that will make me pass out if I overdose? I am not exactly trying to kill myself, just a way of revealing my pain to my parent without having to actually talk to them, but let’s just say I wouldn’t care if I died overdosing.

I know I will receive lots of “don’t do this” “you don’t deserve life” and “you’re worth it” but I don’t believe any of that. I hate my life and myself so much, I don’t think anything or anyone can change this. So please, spare me the sweet comments about how everything will get better and I should stay strong because I can’t, I am a weak person who cannot handle anything anymore.

there are much better ways at showing your parents the pain you’re in than overdosing. if you survive and overdose you’ll likely be hospitalized and that sucks so bad. why don’t you just tell them? if they aren’t able to understand your depression i don’t think an overdose will do the trick. you should try getting a therapist, it can be relieving to vent your feelings to someone who won’t objectively impact your life regardless of what you tell them, at least for me ha, have a great day 🙂

As this isn’t about a suicide attempt I guess safe methods are allowed – any benzodiazepine would work a treat and be as safe as any overdose could be. Just don’t drink any alcohol within 24 hours.

I suspect that most sleeping pills other than barbiturates are pretty safe to make a suicidal gesture.

For the record I did this once as my parents flat out told me it was not possible for me to be depressed and that I had no mental health problems I was just lazy. When I came to they took me out of hospital and shouted at me for being stupid. Epic fail.

I recommend sleeping medication. If you wanna go down the peaceful way.

For what it’s worth, whatever you do if you survive you will be handing total control of your life over to your parents who apparently, don’t understand or know what you really need or want. Doing this won’t tell your parents anything more than that they need to take some sort of drastic action or turn you over to “professionals” to get help for problems you have that they are clueless about.

The alternative is to hook up with and talk to someone that can help you communicate how much pain you are in to your parents in a way that they can understand. This is not an easy thing to do but my sense is that if you give them an excuse to put you in a cage you will be a lot more miserable than you are now.

I know you don’t want to talk to them. I get it. Just consider a less dramatic path to get their attention – a path that ultimately benefits you.

dude., u’r 14 take a f’g chill pill
u’l be dead forever, dont be in such a rush. Life is change.
Think of where you wish to be, and and do your best to create the steps/

dont take a bunch of sleep meds bc u;r just as likely to end op brain dead in a diaper/
just chill. You dont even mention a single problem, anything any more.
how about getting back to basics. Focus on pleasure.

what exactly pains you so much? 14 sucks. more for some than for others, but for most.
ur everybody’s *****. It gets better/. Potentiality much much better. so chill the fuck out and at least try and enjoy the lottery you won (or lost) to get here.

Did it with clonazepam, if you don’t drink alcohol pm the overdose will just knock you out for 1.5 days… You’ll be rather lost and disoriented though for stuff least a week

I’m in no way encouraging you to hurt yourself, but I’m not going to give you the “it’ll get better” lecture, either.

I think that there are much healthier ways for you to let someone know you need help, but if you really want to go about it like this, here’s what I’d do:

Take a non-lethal dose of something sedating. Even Benadryl would work. Write a suicide note and leave it where your parents will see it. The Benadryl or whatever you choose to take will make you very tired, so they’ll probably find you sleeping and think you OD’d.

Just beware that things might not work the way you want them to. Everyone’s bodies respond differently to different drugs, so it’s possible for you to accidentally kill yourself or make yourself VERY sick (ever had your stomach pumped or been forced to drink charcoal? It’s awful). Also, your parents might become extremely angry and give you hell because they don’t understand. AND you’ll almost certainly get put in a psych ward, and those are NOT FUN.

Whatever you choose to do, my thoughts are with you. I hope all goes well.
