Our expert says:
Nobody asks such a question unless they are seriously considering committing suicide in this way. Please don't do so. I hope your depression isn't just being treated by a GP, as it really needs to be assessed and treated by a specialist psychiatrist - you're worth that. Please arrange urgently to see a psychiatrist for assessment ( through a Casualty Dept if necessary ) and frankly tell him just how you're feeling.
Dont try to take a permanent step to deal with a temporary problem and however awful and hopeless you might be feeling right now, this state will not be permenent and can be relieved by proper treatment, with the right medication and counselling ( medication alone is not enough ). And make sure that someone else controls your medication and makes sure you take it, so you cant save up a dangerous dose.
Remmber, too, that there can be many risks to taking an overdose ( indeed to all possible methods of harming yourself ) - one of the worst is that rather than dying peacefully as you might want to imagine, you could live but significantly damaged by the attempt.
Please get the help you obviously need and deserve, and find the pleasures in life you can do.
