so, um... - August 25th 2012, 06:06 AM

So, I cut, on my shoulder. It didn't hurt, but apparently it was kinda deep. I'm pretty scared. I'm not used to this much blood. I washed it with soap and water, and I've been wiping it up, but I have no bandages. Advice?


Sometimes people build up walls not to keep others out, but to see who cares enough to break them down...

maybe a bit triggering:

1. I dont think you should cut that deep ever again
2. dont cut on your shoulder... in general thats just a bad place to cut
3. when you are bleeding, put pressure on it.
4. stop cutting okay? its just not a good way to cope. :/


Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blindness
They're the ones that stand to lose

'Cause they don't even know you
All they see is SCARS
They don't see the ANGEL

Apply pressure to wound to allow it to clot. If it does not stop bleeding, stitches might be needed.

EDIT: Also, Water dilutes Blood, so there may be less blood then it looks by the way.
