Its been about an hour since I did this but I cut my thigh really BAD! I don’t want to go to the hospital and honestly it’d be the most heart breaking thing to do (self inflicted). The cut is a half an inch deep and wider than that. But I really cannot go to the hospital, is there anything else I can do to stop it or majorly slow it? I tried pressure for over 15 minutes after I did itand thought it slowed enough for me to just put a big bandaid on, big mistake. It bleed through within seconds so took the nearest tape/s to wrap around my thigh. Now I’ve got about 4 layers of tape on while I hold tissues over it. It’s bled on my bed, pajama pants, my hands covered in it. PLEASE HELPJune 23, 2013 at 8:55 am #970292
Ehhh you probably wont be happy to hear this; get to hospital ASAP…this injury is most complicated to sort out yourself, or if not impossible… so please do get some help NOWJune 23, 2013 at 9:29 am #970295
The hospital deal with this all the time. They are professionals and they will not judge you. – they cannot judge you.
Go and get it cleared up at the hospital or else you could lose a lot of blood or get a nasty infection.June 23, 2013 at 11:23 am #970276Pat McDonaldParticipant
It’s either hospital or bulldog clip (which is harder to explain).
Your call.June 23, 2013 at 11:24 am #970278
As everyone else has said, you need to go the hospital, pronto!June 23, 2013 at 12:10 pm #970293DaftFaderParticipant
WOW, YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL NOW!
They will not judge you, they remove things from people anuses that people have got lodged up there when inserting them. They will really not think bad of you for hurting your self and not judge you in the slightest, all they will want to do is help you.
PLEASE PLEASE pick up the phone and call for an ambulance. That cut is too big to treat your self.June 23, 2013 at 12:14 pm #970294DaftFaderParticipant
I know where you’re from healthcare isn’t free, and you might not have insurance, but your health is more important then anything else. Get to the hospital and ensure your health is preserved and deal with any payment iussues after. you must think about what you need right now, and not what it will cost later. There are no compromises when it comes to your own well-being and safety.
Hope you get it sorted out quickly.June 23, 2013 at 12:41 pm #970271
well its quite a few hours since your post so i guess the decision was made… hope you’re ok.
from your posts so far, it sounds like you’re addicted to suffering… its nothing to feel bad with yourself about. its quite common in teen/early adult years (and on sadly for some). i was in some way similar for a while. but like any addiction you have to put energy in if you want to leave, walk against the tide to get out. to do this tho, you have to be able to look yourself sincerely in the eye and realise that, although there may be a multitude of external things that are not to your liking, you’re disposition is 100% illusory, of your own making and at any moment you can snap your fingers and leave. for many people they don’t want this, they find comfort in this state (as i did)… but life can be anything, anything at all. its just up to you. this, your life, how you are feeling is what you have chosen to feel. that may sound harsh because we all have different life stories, some more challenging than others, but you always choose how you react to things. some people can’t understand this because they react to everything, but you always have a choice. when you’re young you’re understanding of this is at its weakest because you’ve had least experience of external potential stress, but if you start trying to make more loving decisions you’ll notice change coming into your life… one nice spin is that people with a lot of pain find they have a lot of energy when they alleviate their suffering.
also this type of suffering is far more common in plutonomic societies. some countries have a dense energy and its easy to become reactive to it. as in one of your other posts you suggested you may like to leave usa. maybe thats a good idea when the time comes. but until that time is possible, try to look within yourself for solutions. although i’d say to do everything you can with love, try also to become a bit more like a machine. use logic. what is the simple solution to your problem? what is the shortest route to get there? this is the opposite of emotions which are looking to inflate and exaggerate the potential stresses you are reacting to.
if you feel like self harming again, or even suicidal, make sure you give yourself a moment of space before you commit to anything; a moment where you are in the moment, not in your emotions. listen to the sounds around you and listen and feel your body. focus your attention to one part of your body, maybe your hands and feel the life energy running though it.
i would recommend looking to accept things you can’t change to alleviate stress, rather than inflicting negativity upon yourself.
hope you can learn to love yourself and feel better. peace xJune 23, 2013 at 9:26 pm #970283Anonymous
Thanks guys. I took my bandages off to go in the shower and the bleeding has slowed majorly to almost stopping and I just barely missed a large vein in my thigh.June 23, 2013 at 9:52 pm #970279

That could well be your femeral artery and not a vein, if you severed that particular artery you can bleed out in minutes. Seriously think about it; between you creating the thread and the first response a few minutes later you could have been halfway dead. Please be more careful in future if you must cut.June 23, 2013 at 10:03 pm #970284AnonymousThe Psyentist wrote:That could well be your femeral artery and not a vein, if you severed that particular artery you can bleed out in minutes.

I’ll be more careful and try not to have it happen again.June 23, 2013 at 10:07 pm #970280
