Took too many tablets last night... (trigger--mention of rape)

I've not been sleeping well again and my mood is plummeting. I've started having nightmares again that are waking me up. Last night, it was of a rape that happened many years ago. I woke up and for a while it continued--if that makes sense? I wasn't sure whether it was real or not for a bit.

I was so distraught and panicking and tired. I had spoken to a CPN yesterday, who advised me to split the zopliclone dose so that I could take some if I woke up through the night. Except that I was so upset I took 6 x 7.5mg. The joint pain was raging so I also took 6 co-codamol. (I think. I'm not 100% of the co-codamol, atlhough I'm sure I took some.) I know that was stupid--it was very much on the spur of the moment as I was so upset. I must have zonked out and just woke up a bit ago. I'm feeling very unsteady on my feet and just not with it.

I don't know what to do. I don't think I've taken enough to do any damage. I'm worried that if I say anything, they will think I did it to hurt myself, which I didn't.
