I hope Pat Houston pulls through and seeks the help she needs to get through this chapter in her life!

Whitney Houston‘s sister-in-law Pat Houston was moments from taking her own life … or several family members thought when they called 911 — only to discover it was a huge misunderstanding.TMZ has learned cops and paramedics rushed to Pat’s home in Alpharetta, GA today — after receiving calls from people close to her who thought Pat had tried to commit suicide.

Here’s what happened … hours earlier Pat had posted on her Facebook page, “Sometimes you just feel like giving up on life and its many challenges. And for the first time in my life…I’m tired…and I want to finally rest. I love you guys.”

Sources tell us several family members saw the post and were immediately concerned … they began calling and texting Pat but got no answer. Then they went to her house, found her passed out in bed next to a pill bottle … and decided to call 911.

We’re told as soon as cops arrived, Pat woke up and explained she had simply taken pain medication for her back, turned off her phone and then gone to sleep — unaware so many people were trying to contact her.

We’re told Pat informed everyone … she was never suicidal, the Facebook post was a result of stress.

Law enforcement tells us, Pat was taken to the hospital — as a preventative measure — and released a short time later.

UPDATE:

Apparently, after reading her status update, some felt the need to contact the police, with reports claiming the cops were called for a suicide scare, but a source close to the family tells E! News that wasn’t the case.

Once police and paramedics arrived to Houston’s Alpharetta, Ga., home today, they found her in bed with a pill bottle next to her. She awoke and explained that she took pain medication for her back and fell asleep.

Houston was taken to the hospital just to be safe, but was released shortly afterward.
