bandages - February 20th 2011, 02:22 PM

Uhh.. So I need a little advice. I've run out of bandages and dressings..and need an alternative.
And where can I buy bandages from?
Cause I cut pretty bad and I don't want them to get infected... :/

For now, since you do not have any, take any alcohol you have and put it over the cut. I know it'll burn, but it's gotta be done. Then take some toilet paper and wrap it around your arm, it'll work for a while. When you are able to, go to your nearest pharmacy or drug store and buy some dressing from there.

The TRUTH, will set you FREE. (John 8:32)

"For I know the PLANS I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to PROSPER you and not to harm you, plans to GIVE YOU HOPE and a future." (Jer. 29:11)

If you have an old tshirt that you don't wear anymore, you could use it. Or an old towel. Just make sure it's clean (which goes without saying, I'm sure). You could cut it into strips and wrap it around wherever you've hurt yourself.


I know you've seen the list before, but Charli...you don't need to hurt yourself. You don't need it or deserve it. If it's been a while since you've checked out the alternatives sticky, look at it again, maybe try some things you've never tried before, or try something that in the past didn't work...because it might work this time. I'm here if you need anything Charli...you're not alone.
Take care of yourself, you're worth it. <3

Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.
