Mum-of-three Accidentally Kills Herself with Lethal Cocktail of Prescription Drugs (Photos).
A devoted mum who struggled to sleep at night accidentally killed herself with a lethal cocktail of prescription tablets, an inquest heard.
According to Sun UK, the woman identified as Katrina Glynn, 34, was found dead on her couch at her Bolton home in August, after she suffered from bouts of anxiety and sleeplessness, as her partner worked away.
Miss Glynn had been diagnosed with anxiety, depression, an emotional unstable personality disorder and sleep disturbance in October 2016. The former healthcare worker had just started a new relationship, but struggled to cope as her partner worked away on oil rigs.
Her mum Janet said she was “really looking forward to her boyfriend coming home and had tidied everywhere for his return”.
Describing the last time she saw her daughter, her mum Janet said: “She seemed absolutely fine. She left at 6:30pm. At 10:30pm I had a call from her and she asked if she could take some pillows for her partner when he came back.
“She said she loved her family and she was going to be fine walking home. She also confirmed that she wanted to come out with us at the weekend for a meal and was looking forward to it.”
The following morning on August 3, Janet questioned why her daughter hadn’t replied to her text.
But she thought little of it until she received a call from cops.
Janet said: “She would never do this on purpose, she loved her children so much and she was worried about what would happen to them if she ever died. I don’t think she intended to take her own life. I think this was an accident.”
Recording a conclusion of drug related death Mr Brennand said: ”Sadly she was consumed in a battle with her demons and at the age of 34, this truly was a tragedy as she was described as a fighter showing potential, and a vigour and zest for life.
”But I believe the cocktail of the medication had a profound affect. These were not illicit, or street, drugs, they were prescribed medication for a third party. The real danger is in relation to the use of medication that has the potential to kill.
”Some people may feel they have complete control to understanding their effects but this is a case of someone living in a game of chemical Russian roulette.”
Matthew Miller, Miss Glynn’s psychiatrist who treated her in October 2016 said she had a good relationship with her children, but she didn’t show signs of self harm, “she just wanted to sleep”.
