THIS WAS NOT ON PURPOSE JUST A HARD DAY AND TRYING TO MAKE A WORSE ONE. WHAT I HAVE READ ON THE WEB IS NOT CLEAR THAT IS WHY I AM PAYING FOR YOU TO TELL CAN HONESTLY SLEEP THIS OFF OR AM I GOING TO DIE
Expert:  Ralph LMHC replied 7 years ago.

Hello,

I am not a physician and I always err on the side of safety that is why I gave the poison control number where experts on exact amounts and what to do are available for no free. So since you did not feel this was helpful, it is something you should not accept and I will opt out so other experts can answer if you prefer. Best wishes.

 

Sincerely,

Ralph LMHC
