Suicide is not painless

Last night I helped with a suicide attempt. Patient had overdosed on pills. She was breathing her vomit when the ambulance wheeled her in. That gurgling sound she kept making as her body tried to breathe will stay with me for a long time. The worse part was feeling the vibrations of of those gurgles thru the bag as I tried to help her breathe.
