If you pray, please pray for my daughter and my family.
She is 16 and overdosed in the bathroom at school yesterday. She is in a inpatient facility now.
I'm dying inside.

Hi sweetie, I am so sorry. I'm right there with you. My son has attempted twice, so I know the horrible pain you are in right now.
We are here for you when you need to talk.
Is she on a 72 hr hold? Does she have a psychiatrist already? If not start searching for the best one you can find in your area.
Contact your local NAMI organization for referrals if you don't know where to start.

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Big huge hugs, nekorb.
Praying hard for your daughter's total healing. And praying that God gives you and your family comfort and strength and that you can literally feel His presence.
I'm coming to see that maybe I'd rather die in my boots than live on my knees.

I am so sorry you're going through this. I can't imagine anything harder than the loss of a child by suicide. At least you can hope that she's now hit rock-bottom and she can begin to get the help she needs.
Praying for peace for your family, and strong support to get the help you all need.

Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength
