Im here too :) for both of you :)

PsychoKitty2010 18-12-2010 04:46 AM

Ty. I just feel horrible because I feel I always bitch and complain but I can't help it. Then I don't know what to say to people to be helpful when others need help because I don't want to make myself into a hypocrite or anything. I don't know...I've been told that maybe I should apply for social security disability but I just don't know if I should, because I don't know if I can continue school while on disability and stuff. I hope I can last until the 3rd, I don't plan on dying but hell I don't plan on cutting, either, but still wake up in the mornings with new cuts. Least while I am dissociated I can still bandage them. But it kind of worries me because...what happens when I run out of bandages, and can't afford to go buy more? :S

And, I am always here to listen. To you guys, and to anyone. If all I can do is listen, I will. So if you ever need to talk, I don't care how I am doing, you can talk to me. xx

hmm.. yea i dont know about disability and school... you'd have to do some research i think. your not a hypocrite though. I mean we all struggle and know that some of our behaviors are bad, but talk against them anyway because we don't want others to hurt. I'm sorry that you SI while dissociated so much. I'd imagine that would be very frustrating. I'm sorry, i wish i had better advice right now :-/

PsychoKitty2010 18-12-2010 05:08 AM

It's ok. Thanks for listening.

Question...how do you know when your cuts are healed enough to "safely" take a shower? Like removing the bandaid because its not waterproof but not have to re-bandage it after the shower? Cuz I don't have that many bandages left...

SoMuchMore 18-12-2010 05:29 AM

No problem. *hugs*

hmm... im afraid i may not be the best to answer since i always just shower like usual and make sure it stays clean using antibiotic soap. I take bandages off pretty quickly because its good for them to air out a bit.

PsychoKitty2010 18-12-2010 05:33 AM

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?

PsychoKitty2010 18-12-2010 05:34 AM

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

SoMuchMore 18-12-2010 05:40 AM

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 05:43 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 05:49 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 05:52 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

SoMuchMore 18-12-2010 05:53 AM
