bad cut (I was triggered) - February 9th 2009, 12:24 AM

I got triggered tonight so I was gonna jump out of my window when my leg got caught. I have a giant, wide cut now. It was bleeding pretty bad so I tied a towel tightly around it.
The bleeding has slowed down but it's so ugly.
When I saw it, I hyperventilated at the sight of it. I just kept going "oh no, oh no, oh no,...."
I'm wondering if I need stitches and if so tomorrow's not too late is it?

hm, if you think you might need stitches then you should probably go to the hospital or local walk in centre..

its probably better to be on the safe side rather than just sitting there with an open wound hoping it'll heal up. as for tomorrow being too late? if i were you i would go this evening, but i guess it won't kill you to wait til the morning, so long as the bleeding has stopped.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

My mom would freak out if she saw it. It would be disaster.

Because it happened on your window, which is probably dirty, and because it was deep, I would say go to an ER and get it checked out. You don't want it to get infected and if it does need stitches, it needs to happen tonight. Go and get checked out just to be on the safe side.

i think the sooner the better, cuz if you wait till tmrw, it could have a better chance of an infection or it opening up even more...nd what not, and you dont wanna lose to much blood. =/




how stubborn are the scars when they wont fade away..or just a gentle reminder that now are better days

I think this is more general health than self harm, so I'm going to place it there.
If anyone disagrees, feel free to move it.

Tibby, you should probably go to the hospital, for two reasons, one if you are suicidal, you really need to get yourself some help. You deserve it, to feel better. Don't let life get you so down. Second, as Brittney said, your window is dirty, you don't want infections and so forth.

Best of luck.
Maria.

I don't believe in suicide. To me it's quitting and giving up on God.

Tibby, I agree with Maria on this one. Also, do not wait longer than 24 hours or the wound will be too contaminated for stitches.

What would jumping out of a window be considered then?

No matter what you want to call it, in the end it is killing yourself.

You need to have your cut looked at, if that was the question you were looking to get answered though.

harming myself. You seen Dark Knight when he pushed Moroni off the balcony? It wasn't that high up.

By the way wtf kind of question is that? This isn't a debate.

So update on my cut. Bleeding stopped I re bandaged it this morning and cleaned it. Don't care much anymore.

Update: I told my dad about the cut over the phone last night. He told my mom . I needed stitches and got them just now.

Glad you got it looked at properly and got stitches. It was brave of you to talk to your dad about it..
What's your mums reaction been like then?

It's quite annoying when threads turn into debates about a totally seperate issue isnt it lol..

I'm sorry to here about that...sounds awful...(I hate seeing blood. )
I would suggest going to a doctors soonish...they'd be able to tell you whether you need to get stitches or not..
Other than that, all i can say is keep it nice and clean: to prevent infction. and well done for stopping the bleeding! =D

Thank you Tracy, Rosein.

My mom doesn't respond well to these things so she freaks out.

Aw, Tibby.
I'm glad that you got your cut taken care of so it didn't get any worse.
Take care, okay?

Thank you Lorelei. It's beginning to heal and doesn't hurt.

I think someone up there wishes I'd attempted.
