Experience:40mg Zolpidem / 20mg Diazepam - Please Don't Do This

- Setting: At my house
Background: A girl I really liked said she didn't wanna be with me and I was like oh ok. This was the next day... but I only intended on taking Zolpidem to forget about her. Also sorry about the lack of content, the events are very fuzzy.
First Dose: I took 20mg of Zolpidem. All is well.
Approx. 45 minutes later: Through the double vision, I started having the delusion that I was indeed sober so I decided to take some Valium. I counted out 10 Valiums (which is 20mg) and downed them.
Maybe 20 minutes later: For some reason I decided to check my pulse on our blood pressure cuff at home. It was 136 BPM. Zolpidem usually raises my pulse a bit. The anxiety suppression kept me from being worried about my pulse, because normally I freak out about my heart rate if it's too high and then that starts a cycle of anxiety.
Shortly after checking my pulse: My mom asked me if I was okay or not (she didn't know I had taken anything). I don't remember how I responded, but it was apparent to her that I was indeed not okay. She asked me if I wanted to go see a doctor and I said yes. I'm pretty sure I felt fine, but the Zolpidem made me very susceptible to agreeing with basically anything.
At the ER: I don't remember the car ride to the ER, or getting a bed. But my memory resumes when I'm on a bed in the ER. The doctor came in and said that the blood samples looked good. I don't remember them drawing any blood. I looked at the top of my arm and there was an IV. Someone asked me if I wanted a blanket and I said yes. I specifically remember seeing a nurse there that I saw during the summer when I went to the ER after my bad DXM trip (I made a report on that DXM trip also). The nurse was encompassed in double vision, along with his surroundings. As the title of this report says, don't do this. For real. Don't.
