Exclamation First aid for paper cuts? - March 12th 2012, 10:01 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

They only bleed a bit, and sometimes it's only a red mark for a few days. But I just wanna know how to take care of them. Make sure they don't get infected.. Don't want anyone seeing them, eh?



I love you.... I wish you'd love me too...

Just wash them and maybe put some bandaids on. if they're on your arms, then it's long sleves, but if it's like fingers, don't be afraid of bandaids, there are a million reasons to have bandaids on your fingers (Blisters, warts, cuts, etc.)


I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave

Hey there,

Just make sure you clean them and keep them clean. As suggested above plaster/ band aids (depending on your country :P ) are a good idea.

I know it wasn't your question so i'm not going to push it but if you ever want/need to talk about why you SH or just anything in general feel free to PM me

Take care,
Charli
