Call poison control: Call Poison Control and check. Also, hand injuries are very serious. Get seen and treated to prevent permanent damage. Will you die? Can't say. Why are people shooting you? What other things do you do that are not safe (like taking more medication than recommended)? Poor choices do kill, in many ways. Rethink them. Avoid risky behavior & situations. Get appropriate medical care when needed
