Simple if intent on: doing it. 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 1-800-suicide (1-800-784-2433) or 1-800-273 – talk (1-800-273-8255) for support.

It's possible: if supplements are taken incorrectly over a long period of time or a large amount is taken at once. It is a fat soluble vitamin so it is stored in the body. It is virtually impossible to have vitamin e toxicity through food consumption alone.
