It really isn't that bad

I took those two bottles of aspirin. my stomach and sides hurt,and i feel kind of sick to my stomach, isn't anymore going to happen. I was going to go to the doctor, but i don't know why i should. does anyone else have a reason i should go to the doctor?. I only live about 5 blocks from the hospital. I used to work at that hospital would they know if I took an overdose of aspirin. they were orange flavor, really wasn't that bad.

Was this a suicide attempt? Yes, I do think you should go to the hospital. First of all, you could have done great damage to some pretty major organs like your liver or kidneys. You could also cause bleeding in your stomach or GI tract. Just because you haven't felt something right away doesn't mean you haven't done great damage. Please, please go to the ER.
After you do, come back on here and tell us how you are. There are a lot of caring people on here who will talk to you and even pray for you. Please don't give up. Life is precious. Your life is precious. I will be waiting to hear back from you and I'm going to be praying for you. I care.

I hope it is more of a cry for help because to really try to kill yourself is going to kill and ruin the lives of many people who love you. Hell man I just joined here a half hour ago and I am worried for you.

You said orange flavored so all that comes to mind is Baby Asprin, but don't count on that not to kill you or burn out your stomach and give you ulcers. They are real, not candy and just as much a danger as adult asprin. 2 bottles is alot man. I will pray for you now and hope you get what you need brother.

The comments already made should be reason enough to get yourself to a hospital, even if you think you're OK or feeling fine. Taking two bottles of asprin is a drastic measure and especially if it was a suicide attempt, you should call 911. Not to preach, but regardless of what you do right now, please seek out a mental health provider and talk to him/her about what is going on in your life. Apparently, not all is well.

Sounds like you took baby aspirin.

I've been suicidal and have tried suicide.  I didn't like it much because it made me sick.  Baby aspirin won't cause much damage IMHO but the intent behind it - maybe consider therapy.  Put off committing suicide for awhile.  The choice will still be there if you want it after trying everything else.  Hopefully, by then you'll be too old to open a bottle by yourself  = )

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.  I've been there, suicide is vastly overrated.

Hi
Hope you're feeling better now! Dear, i know you don't think you need to see a doc. but i am afraid it is just the beginning! You might not be lucky next time!

Remember:  there are many reasons to live for! Searching about them is main one!

I know sometimes you do things out of conscious, but don’t give chance to such things! They really can affect your life quality!

Try & talk to a specialist!

Wish you all the luck

Take care...zina^.^

Hi bell

I'm still here, does not urge every go away? I kinda feel really empty, i guess thats how i would describe it. I went to the pcychiatrist, i think i left feeling worse,  instead of better.
He made the comment to me "that the damage  i cause my body hadn't even started yet", i ask him to explain that. His comment was "my time was up, he would see me next week"  i don't know if i regret what i did and maybe i just didn't take enough, since now my stomach and sides are hurting to the point i don't want anything to eat.

Your stomach is "telling you" how you feel.  Body and mind can't be separated.  You hurt emotionally and your stomach is showing you that.  Mine does the same thing.  I don't know which is worse - the hurt or the emptiness.

Hugs to you ....
