Take a wet cloth and press down on the wound. Hold it there for a couple minutes. If it is still bleeding when you check, go to the hospital. You will probably need stitches.
Thanks...I'll try that.
Keep us updated, please
The blood is decreasing by time...It was bleeding for 10-15 minutes continuously...I never wanted the bleeding to stop...I'm doing this because I don't want it to leak it from my clothes and I'm about to have unexpected guests...
I know that feeling, I do. Can you make a makeshift splint? Take a piece of cloth, something that you can tie in a knot around your elbow to slow the bloodflow?
It's on my thigh...Not on my elbow.
I thought you cut your wrist. Okay, In your thigh is a very important artery, that if you cut, you would bleed out slowly and painfully. Be careful around there. Can you wrap anything above where you cut? Or press a cloth to the area, like a bandage, to soak in the blood, then tie something over it to keep it in place and slow the bloodflow?
It got better, thank you though...I was worried it would leak through my pants...
I feel so embarrassed now because my 9 year old brother saw it, I told him it's paint.
I did tie it up with a piece of wet cloth and it still bled, but it's slow.
If it hasn't stopped completely by tomorrow, I really recommend seeing a doctor. And if you ever want someone to just talk or rant to, hit me up. We should be friends :)
Just please go to the hospital. If youve hit an artery the slightest move could make you bleed out like in your sleep. Better safe than sorry i dont want to see anything happento you even though i dont know you.
I don't know what I'll tell the hospital people when they ask me how it happened.
Thanks for caring though, I am better now.
You could make up anything like i had a pair of scissors in hand and tripped and they slipped into me or something like that if you dont want them to know the truth. I just dont want anything bad to happen to you.
Thanks so much! You are so caring!
A few years ago I found out the my best friend was cutting herself. I was so concerned and scared for her. I asked her why she did it and she said that it helpe...
Last night, after my mom nag at me, I showed her my scars. I don't know how to communicate with my parents. Showing off is only way I can think of, that I'm not...
