Bleach ingestion: can cause throat and abdominal pain, burning/ heat in mouth & abdomen, swelling of throat, severe cramps,vomiting, blood in feces, & it can lead to death. If you are having thoughts about killing yourself, get seen at the nearest emergency room now. Have a friend or relative drive you or call 911 for emergency services for transport. You can call the National suicide hotlines 24/7 at
