Just need some advice. - Sorry <3 - February 22nd 2011, 11:59 PM

I feel bad for posting here twice in one week.. So please answer other peoples threads before mine :3

Basically, I was doing so well up untill friday/saturday. I hadn't cut in about a month. And all of my scars were fading. Which was amazing. And now I can't stop.
Sunday, I sat and cut until I had re-established my technique. My wrist was a mess by the end of it. Then I get to today and cut over those marks and they started bleeding badly. I'm kinda worried. They're really red and are still bleeding from an hour ago :/ I've cleaned the wounds and wrapped a bandage and dressing over it, that I bought today.

All I need is a bit of advice on what to do. I don't mind if you'd prefer to PM me instead of replying to the thread.
I wouldn't ask unless I really needed it.. xxxx

No apologies necessary, really<3. You have nothing to be ashamed of, please post whenever you want or need. That said, the continued bleeding is definitely something to take care of as best you possibly can, which may include calling your doctor or going to the hospital, if bleeding persists. I would suggest applying pressure to the wounds, as well as elevating/ holding your wrist up (wounds facing the ceiling) to help prevent further blood loss. If that doesn't help and your wrist continues to bleed, you'll need to get help. Blood loss is very serious and can be fatal. I don't know what happened or how, but I hope that you continue to hang in there and please, take care of yourself.
PM me if there's anything at all that I can do for you.

I believe thatyou're inherently beautiful : )

Don't feel bad for posting here, asking for advice and support with SH is what this forum is for. If your wrist is still bleeding after an hour you need to go to the hospital, also I agree with what Ada said, elevate your arm and apply pressure. Are there alternatives that have worked for you before?

Hey Charli.

As the others have said, there's no need to apologise. We're here to help, and everyone's problems are important.

First off, congratulations on being cut-free for so long. You should be proud of that. Sorry to hear you started again. Do you want to talk about what triggered this?

As for the bleeding, here's some first aid information, but if you're ever unsure, it's always best to consult a doctor. Your safety is important, and self harm can easily cause other problems (loss of blood, infections, etc), so it's vital that you treat the cuts correctly.

We're here if you need us.

Take care.
