Hmmm ok. I looked at the bandage and it seems to be ok like it hasn't bled through or anything but I don't know...what should I do if its still bleeding some after I take off the bandaid?

-hugs back- sorry I meant to put that in my last post but meh pushed post too soon lol

well i mean if it is still bleeding i would keep a bandage on it... if it is still bleeding after a few hours, then maybe u should try to get it checked out. It could need stitches. Btw. this is just my experience... maybe u should post in the First Aid forum about some of these for the actual medical answers. I dont want to give any bad advice... in fact, it might even be against the rules.. i don't know.. i should probably check them heh.

oh and also: http://www.recoveryourlife.com/index.php?categoryid=93

that is the wound care advice page. it may be helpful as well :-)

PsychoKitty2010 18-12-2010 06:43 AM

Heh sorry. I can't go get them checked no insurance. And the last time I had cuts that wouldn't stop bleeding and went into the hospital all they did was put some cream on it and bandage it with gauze and some good tape and charged me $616. So yeah it sucks. Thanks for the advice, though. I will check the first aid forums to see if I can find answers. -hugs- How are you doing now?

SoMuchMore 18-12-2010 06:49 AM

*hugs back* im getting kinda tired.. hoping that if i sleep i will feel a little better. will you be alright if i sign off and go to sleep?

PsychoKitty2010 18-12-2010 06:52 AM

I don't know. I'm not really doing ok right now. But you are sick, you need rest. I'm not going to keep you here. -hugs again- Go get some rest. Hopefully tomorrow you will feel better (or later, depending on where you are located and the times). I hope you feel better soon. xx

how are you owen? Nicole?

Doikers 18-12-2010 11:43 AM

Sorry Kitty , Still low and waking up .
I guess different you need to take each cut as an individual wound that it is , If it's stopped bleeding I would take off the bandage at night to let the air get to it so it can heal , when in the shower DON'T scrub it , wash around it to avoid making it bleed any more . Thats just what I would do . Leave it unbandaged at night so long as the bleeding has stopped.
I'm not a medical expert and this is just what I would do , Please look at the first aid forum and ask there , they might help like Laura (I think it was Laura) said .

PsychoKitty2010 18-12-2010 11:49 AM

-hugs mark- sorry to hear you are still low. Hope you feel better soon. Unfortunately I won't be able to be on much longer...my husband is complaining he wants me to come to bed so I had to take my sleeping pill :( Please PM me mark if you need or want to. Don't hesitate. You are always here for me, I will be there for you, too.

Thanks for the advice. I did post it in the first aid forum a few hours ago haven't had any response yet. Will see if they respond later. It sucks living in the US when this is mainly a UK site. lol.

Doikers 18-12-2010 11:50 AM

Kitty *Hugs* I'm feeling low , already trying to figure out what to eat for dinner so as not to panic about it later , I Self Injured on my leg last night , I've simple almost run out of room on my arms . I didn't choose to have depression, Sick of it , Sick of feeling so low , Sick of feeling like a burden to all you guys , I just want to cry but I can't . *Sigh* Sorry , I was really telling myself I would be more positive today but thats just not happened :S

MammaMia 18-12-2010 11:55 AM

Nobody chooses to have depression Mark. Am sure nobody thinks you want it either. I'm sorry you cut last night, please look after your wound(s). You're not a burden and don't be so hard on yourself for not being more positive. You can't force these things, they take practice.... *hugs*
