I have this girl I know, lets call her Tracy, she is 20 yrs old. She has many problems falling asleep. I know I am not a doc, but I know the symptoms of bipolar disorder, cause I am BP. I accidently saw her take approx 22 or so sleeping pills, OTC kind. I freaked, I thought she was committing suicide! She tells me this is how much she has to take in order to fall asleep. I still watched her the rest of the night to make sure. In anbout an hour givce or take, I did notice when I was talking to her, she was forgetting either what I said or what she was saying. Couldn't really hold a good conversion with her. She went to sleep, I am like the mother bear and stood watch over her thinking she might not wake up. Somehow she made it and woke up. I know this is dangerous , but if she took so much, I thought she OD'ed!! She didn't. I wondering how this can affect her health? She doesn't have a mom or dad, or any siblings, or grandparents. They all died in a horrific house fire 2 yrs ago on Thanksgiving. Her dad deep fried the turkey in their garage. She had to go to the store just 3 houses down and get some milk thats why she wasn't there. I sorta adopted her when I entered the Big Sister program a few yrs before and I saw what happened to her. So I am wondering how can I help her with this? I am wondering if maybe she is trying to die,. Anyone with any adivce??
