OMG that sounds awful.

Hope everyone involved is okay.

Is your mum getting any help now?

Has she got checked out at the hospital? What will happen now? Why was she planning to kill the dogs? do you think that she really did this, or that this is a cry for help?

Littleblue Sun 21-Jun-09 17:02:28

she wont go to the hospital,she has stomach upset but her colour is good,etc,she took paracetemol too.Shes weepy but swears she wont do it again..im reeling

sweetfall Sun 21-Jun-09 17:10:38

How many paracetomal did she take? She needs to go to hospital with a paracetomal overdose. I don't mean to panic you but that would be very concerning. Please seek help.

Sweetfall is right. Paracetamol is awful stuff and she needs to go to hospital. If she won't go call an ambulance.

She needs to go to hospital. Paracetamol overdose is very dangerous. You seem ok at first and can think you're ok, but the damage to your liver/kidneys can kill you days later. If you don't get medical attention in time, then there is nothing they can do and you face an agonising death. even if you live you can be left disabled and in terrible pain

Sorry to be so blunt, but it is NOT a case of "fall asleep" an hour after taking it. It can take a week to die and it's not pretty.

After a couple of days, there's nothing anyone can do to help you.

She needs to go to hospital. NOW.

it was friday night,she says she desnt recall how many pills she took,ive texted her re whats been said an my own subsequent online research,i know shes out with her bf tonight,if she doesnt respond,il tell her im gonna tell him,unless she does something about it..

Littleblue Sun 21-Jun-09 21:04:24

im in shock,she didnt tell me the details til well after the fact..she was gonna take the dogs with her because they couldnt be without her,but what about her family,2 kids,and 5 grandchildern..

MoominMymbleandMy Sun 21-Jun-09 21:09:25

She doesn't have any time to waste. She needs to be in hospital now.

JodieO Sun 21-Jun-09 21:10:52

Agree def get her to the hospital now. My nan took an od of paracetemol and it took her days to die, she took far too many and she was taken to the hospital as soon as she was found but she still died. They gvae her charcoal or similar I believe, I'm not so sure as I was about 15 at the time. It was horrible.

Littleblue Sun 21-Jun-09 21:19:20

i cant track her,im trying..il give her 15 minutes an ring her bf

Pippinella Sun 21-Jun-09 21:23:05

TBH I'd ring an ambulance on her behalf. Don't muck about.

Littleblue Sun 21-Jun-09 21:27:11

and send it where,they were going out,and neither are answering their mobiles

Littleblue Sun 21-Jun-09 21:35:29

i dont know what to do now

Littleblue Sun 21-Jun-09 22:18:03

im going over there

Littleblue Sun 21-Jun-09 22:18:45

im going over there

PacificDogwood Sun 21-Jun-09 22:20:54

Good luck. Hope you can locate her. I agree with everybody on her, she needs to go to hospital.

Littleblue Mon 22-Jun-09 00:26:05

i found her,she had taken 15,but thrown most of them up very quickly.Shes now feeling like the worst mother on earth bless her.I found her bf's number in the phone she had neglected to take with her,an he told me she was on her way home,so i waited an went all distraught all over her.She said when she saw my car she thought her mother had died,i said,no,i thought mine had.The only was is upward now.

MoominMymbleandMy Mon 22-Jun-09 00:34:05

What a terrible time you've had, you must be shattered.

I don't know what the dangerous dose is, I'm afraid, so I'd make her go to A&E anyway, just to be on the safe side.

MumHadEnough Mon 22-Jun-09 00:36:34

Awww Littleblue. How awful. Do you know why she's did it? Can you get her any help, as in psychologically?

Littleblue Mon 22-Jun-09 07:20:17
