The girl who spent 6 months in a psychiatric hospital. Me.

This is my own, true story about my 6 months in a psychiatric ward being treated for my suicide attempts, self harm, bulimia, anxiety, and PTSD


12. My first attempt.

It was a tuesday.

I had a box of 12 paracetamol in my bag.

I was walking to school.

I couldnt control myself.

Its as like it wasnt me.

I took them all, washing them down with water.

I asked a girl in my form for 2 paracetamol saying i had a headache.. she believed me.

By lunch time, i felt sick, dizzy, faint.. i felt weird.

I had to tell someone. I told my head of year, i wrote it in the smallest writing on the tinyest piece of paper.

'Hello, is this Kevin Staines, Jessica Staines' father?.......... Theres no easy way to tell you this, but your daughter has attempted suicide'

My dad was at work, and they needed to get me to hospital.

My mum had to come and get me. It had been over 6 months since we had spoke.

She stared at me whilst i had my blood taken. She stared at me whilst we waited in A&E for 8 hours.

At last the blood test results came back, it turns out i was ok, my liver was alittle worse for wear but they said i would survive.

no. I wanted to die.
