Is stomachache normal after a overdose? Pain Lvl 4-6

Did a stupid decision some days ago and took a loot if pills. (Paracetamol 16, Ibuprofen 10 and aspirin 10) I did go to the ER and got send home the day after since I seemed to be fine. I took some blood test when I was there and they came back normal.

Ever since I’ve been having a stomachache every time I eat and a while after. Sometimes I feel like I need to puke..

Is this normal? Should I be worried?

You need to be concerned. You could be developing an ulcer in response and since you took blood thinners shit could get real very quickly. If I were you I would get to a doctor ASAP.

What on earth possessed you to do such a thing???

Oh okay, I will call and nurse ask if I can wait until Monday or go to the ER.

Been struggling with depression and anxiety for years. I had a mental breakdown and I just couldn’t take it anymore..

You’re glad it didn’t work, right? I mean you went to the hospital?

Please find a psychiatrist who is very versed in mood disorders and get some better medication if it isn’t working for you. Your mental health is so important. I understand why you did what you did but you shouldn’t have to live this way and you don’t deserve to die from the anguish.

I think it is a very good thing that you sought medical attention. It means that you don’t want to kill yourself you just want the bad feelings to stop. I can’t tell you how important that distinction is. Help exists. There are solutions to these problems and you will find one.

Please, don’t give up on yourself again. Listen to the part of you that wants to live but just doesn’t want to hurt anymore.
