Gon Na Die
What is the best way to die daily I fight to step in front of cars or just drink a whole bolttle and die. I fight this and I feel that I m loosing. Done ; aa, na, in-patient, out-patient, religiouse and non, tried to change my enviornmet, friends, lyfes
Please don't give up hope. Stepping in front of a car or drinking yourself to death is not the answer. It is clear that you care, because you are inquiring about ways to kill yourself that would keep your life insurance intact. I suspect that people who care about you, would rather have you around then the money from a life insurance policy.
You have a lot on your plate. It sounds like you have chronic pain, drug and alcohol additions and urges to hurt or kill others which you take out on yourself. You do need help. You sound as though you are depleted and at the end of your rope. You wrote into this column because at least part of you wants help. I recommend that you go to the nearest er and just be completely honest about where your head is at. If you can't get to an er, you can call 911. You took the first step by writing in. The second step is to get face to face help from a professional (even if you have tried it before). Please get help. ...Read more
Will a person die if he or she ingests the common household bleach called clorox? (6.0% sodium hypochlorite)
Yes, unless it's...: Yes, bleach will kill a person if too much is ingested. However, because bleach kills things, we can use bleach to purify water. After a disaster, if water is contaminated, one can add 4-5 drops of bleach to each quart or liter of water to purify the water for drinking. ...Read more
I use a sodium fluoride (<0.149%w/w)toothpaste 2 a day. I was told sodium fluoride is harmful. Does it really cause cancer or death if use daily? Stop?
Timed correction: Assuming the low sodium was low enough to get admitted, too rapid a rate of correction can cause neurologic complications, which can be severe and permanent (but are fortunately very rare)--so it is done in a controlled fashion with IV fluids, even though the thought of an extra large french fry to fix it seems logical. ...Read more

I get hapetitis b decade. I have been aeten lamivudine for four years. Althouth hbv_d na is a negative, but has always been hbeag. What can I do?
See hepatologist: This doesn't make sense. Those on Lamivudine take100-mg dose by mouth every day, usually for a year, but your doctor may decide to keep you on it longer until your bloodstream shows no sign of hepatitis b dna. If your hep b dna is negative it is difficult to understand how your hep g eag remains positive as this means the virus is multiplying in your liver. See a liver specialist. ...Read more
Sodium intake control. Book says when comparing nutrition labels, the one saying 1Cup serv-100mg Na is less than 6oz serv-60mg Na. How is that less?
Just started seeing doc, counselor, and na meetings. I want to stop abusing pills. Not physically addicted but still want to abuse. Will this subside?

Find hobbies and activities you enjoy so you have less time to crave and think of the "high". Continue to get help whenever and wherever you can. Don't ruin your life. ...Read more
