Overdose Help


Q: I think that a girl who emailed me just overdosed on sleeping pills, and I don't know what to do. I don't know who they are or where they are, but I need to do something. From what she's told me, she took advil sleeping pills, over ten. She's feeling drowsy and her vision is blurry. I've begged her to get help, but she won't. Please, what do I do? If I cant do anything, can I tell her to do something that will help? She wanted to go to sleep, but I've been keeping her up for the past thirty minutes. Please, what can I do?
