Monday night my daughter took a bottle of aspirin in hopes to kill herself. She woke up tuesday morning throwing up, got scared and told me. I took her to the nearest hospital where for 3 days she had to have ivs leveling out the acid level in her blood. She was transferred to a mental health clinic and is currently on a 72 hour hold. They already called me to inform me that because of the amount of aspirin she took they want me to sign her in voluntarily for longer. I didnt get to visit yesterday, only a phone call. She thinks shes "being good" and will be going back to school next week. I searched her room to find journals dating back about six months that she and her friends cut and that she has attempted this before. How do I stay strong when my baby girl wants to die and hurt herself?
