Hey, i'm in a complicated situation. I have very big problems with my parents (they verbally harrass me and sometimes are physically violents, my dad is alcoholic and hate me), and children protection services cant do anything for me (i wont explain it here). They want to go to China with me the 9th of august but i hate this place, i'm always with my parents (24 hours per day, 7 days a week) in a very little flat so our relation is worst there. I cant harm myself when im in china because i cant buy anything for it, and i cant talk to my friends in order to calm down or just go outside of the flat alone. I think that if i want to die there, i wont have anything which will permit to do it, so as long as im in the country where i live, i want to do something in order to avoid them to force me to take the plane

Ive been thinking of taking an overdose of paracetamol. ive seen its pretty impossible to die because of it, but it doesnt matter, i just want to go to hospital for a couple of days
the problem is that i dont want irreversibles dammages for my liver. do you think there is a risk that my liver would be definitively fucked up after that, even if im alive ?
do you have other solutions to this problem ? im a minor, so im forced to follow them, even if im in danger
i dont care if i die, i just want to avoid that

I’ll becfirst to say don’t do it you already know you can get irreversibly damaged - paracetamol are freely available in huge numbers because of just that reason that you simply can’t die (which I know you say you know) but can do some serious damage

I took 40 paracetamol when I was 16, got taken to hospital within an hour and was on a drip for 3 days with no permanent liver damage as the drip had a solution that prevented it. If you get to hospital within 4 hours of taking it you basically have a 100% chance of no lasting liver damage, by 8 hours thats reduced significantly, and by 12 so is that, 24, 48 etc etc by 24-48 you’re definitely looking at permanent damage tbh.

Hope it's OK to comment. I'm a US citizen who just returned from China (working/living for years). I feel your pain/apprehension over squeezing back into a megacity (if you're heading to one). As depressed as I am here in the US, I was far more depressed in China. Best of luck to you.

I once took 32 grams of paracetamol. It just made very sick. I never got medical treatment for it. I’m still here 5 years later.

No need in harming yourself. Just go to the er room and tell them you are going to kill yourself with an overdose of pills if they do not admit you. They will have to admit you.

But I should also mention I got “lucky.” It could really cause problems and even kill you. If you want help, maybe you could contact the sucidie hotline and tell them you’re thinking of overdosing (they’ll call the police and paramedics who will take you to the mental hospital) or go to the ER and tell them you think you need to be admitted.

Paracetamol would be hard as it's something you can easily get your hands on at plenty of shops, so it's designed to be as difficult as possible to kill yourself on. Safety first right?
Chances are you'll just end up in hospital getting stomach pumped, possible organ damage somewhere and the full wrath of the mental health unit on your case - everyone around you knowing.

I took about 100 paracetomals a few months back, I had bad stomach cramps and constipation for a week, but after that I was completely fine. It's near impossible to od on paracetomals.

I wouldn't risk it. There are good antidotes to PCM poisoning but then again you are in China and God knows what the healthcare is like there! For the first hours you will be fine, then it will get really painful and you will have to get the antidote, acetylcetylcysteine to save your liver. I wouldn't recommend this.

Glad to hear it, it's way too risky.

I used to OD on paracetamol as a form of self harm (and thinking there might be a possibility it'd kill me) and instead all that happened was I'd get stomach aches the following day.

Now ten years later, I've discovered that I have cirrhosis of the liver. The damage that's been done already is irreversible, and I get frequent headaches. Every once in a while my worthless body decides to throw the fun curveball bilious headaches into the mix and either I feel very sick or straight up am sick.

Not fucking worth it.

Sorry to hear about your situation.
