I called the Boys Town National Hotline a few months ago when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. I had been recently raped and just wasn't coping well. I started abusing prescription meds and I wanted to die. I absolutely wanted to die.
This one day, I took all the meds that I had on me.. in all, I took three or four different kinds and countless pills. And than, I called the hotline. After having taken the overdose. I have no idea who I spoke to, or what happened. But the hotline literally saved my life.
I woke up days later in the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital. I later found out that when the ambulance got to my house, I was unresponsive and rushed to the hospital where I slipped into a four day coma.
It never even crossed my mind that the hotline would of sent help to me.. Never, but to whoever I spoke to, Thank you. Thank you very much
