"I was admitted with a drug overdose"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital / Accident and emergency

The staff overall were good with me . I was unable to answer questions due to the bad state I was in . My husband and son were with me . I have never done anything like this before and I totally regret it . I couldn't remember how many tables I had taken and if they were slow realise . I had wine earlier in the day , but I had not had Alchol with the tablets . I felt I was being judge and they had no time for me , I couldn't mobilise to the toilet , I was disoriented , confused and was at my lowest point to have done such a thing . I understand they are busy and

I tried to end my life because I felt I had a enough , I wasn't a time waster . But this is how I was made to feel by a nurse taking my obs . The specialist nurse who spoke to me was concerned about my physical condition however after a chat which I wasn't really coherent , obs done sent home . Yes it was self inflicted and I am sorry , but I needed help
