Answer by Joe from WI
If your emotional state is causing you to overdose and throw up, and cut yourself, you do need to see a doctor to find out what is causing it. The doctor will try to find out what is causing it and fix the problem.
Please, talk to a doctor.

Answer by Mod Allice
Honey you need to tell your parents or a doctor or call 911 if you have to but the doctors can help and the hospital won’t strap you down to a bed and you won’t have to try to escape.
