Major damage: The acid will do serious damage to local tissues, but may or may not be buffered by the body's systems before it reaches the heart and damages the rhythm-producing cells. If you are considering suicide, please call your physician, or if you feel you will lose control, call 911. Thinking about this kind of thing is not right for anyone, and your life can probably be much better.
