try putting pressure on it and clean it up, disinfect it. if it still doesnt stop then you have to tell your parents.

Hey there.

I'm really sorry that you've felt this way to the point where you have felt you've needed to hurt yourself. I'm also sorry this might be a bit late.

Try to apply pressure to the wound, perhaps by placing a clean towel over it. Also try putting your arm above your heart which will help reduce. If it's still bleeding when yo have done that I really suggest you getting yourself down to a&e. It might be you need butterfly stitches (Steristrips), Glue or stitches. And even if you go and you don't at least they would have cleaned it properly which will help prevent infection.

I really hope you are okay. I'm here if you need to talk about anything. Stay strong and please get medical help if you need it.

Jessie.
