CALL: Call 911! if I knew where you were, I would have called them by now myself! Your mum is at severe, extreme risk of death - especially if she falls asleep! Please do not hesitate any longer! The most common cause of death in that kind of overdose is the person falls asleep and stops breathing - game over! She is also at extreme risk of vomitting in her sleep, and choking to death on the vomit! Do you really want your mum to die that way, right in front of your eyes?!? Please, call 911 now! If you need help caring for your self and your brothers, the social worker at the hospital can help you with that. Having survived an overdose before does not mean she won't die this time! She is at extremely high risk of death! ...Read more
