I am top individual first aider in my country at my level this year and hope to be again next year, i even teach people basic first aid.

If u have a sever cut u apply pressure until you get linen and padding you then place these on the cut and apply a bandage if the wound is still bleeding you then apply more linen bandages and padding. You raise the wound above heart level to make blood flow lessen so the person will lose less blood.

Always treat for shock. 1. Loosen tight cloothing at the neck, chest and waist.
2. Raise the legs slightly
3. Cover with a blanket
Shock can kill as it affects breathing.

Remember ABC Airway, Breathing and Circulation, lack of breathing for three minutes can result in death or brain damage there is no point bandaging a wound if the person is not breathing, find a way to put pressure on the wound if possibble and always start cpr.

If the person begins to breathe but the breathing is under 12 per minute you start rescue breaths, open the airway and give one breath every 3 seconds. Do not put pressure on the chest for rescue breaths.

If a person goes unconscious place in the recovery position on the wounded side or else maintainn the airway and breathing.

I hope this helps, it helped me save a lil girls life. I <3 first aid.

could I suggest that anyone who's reading this also learn to apply their own butterfly stitches? That piece of advice saved my life once...

Trusting people is what started me off on this slippery slope, so I don't feel like there is anyone who i can trust to tell and i don't want to be a burden to a friend

Oxygen is the best way to heal cuts. Keeping it clean will actually help make it heal a lot faster rather than not cleaning it at all, make sure you have rubbing alcohol and soap, to clean it out everyday.

To identify what type of cut it is, look at the blood.

1. is it brick red and oozing if so its a graze.

2. is it dark red and flowing? that's a medium to deep cut.

3. finally is it bright red and spurting that is arterial. the most severe.

As long as you clean it after you've cut, then it should be fine, just look after it.

Lance, I'm new and that information is totally right on the money so to speak. I've been struggling with self harm for the last seven years and when you said the longer it lasts the harder it is to quit, you were right. I really hope more people come through here and read your sticky thread. You really do have some amazing information going on here that will really help some people.

ATTN: Claire,
Trusting someone with something as emotionally charged as this and many other things is definitely hard to do. However, if you're really serious about quitting, it's a long and hard road. I say this because you have to learn to trust someone, even if it's someone you know over the Net or right here at VT. Having someone to talk to and tell everything to that understands and won't criticize you for what you're feeling or what you've done or are doing is a critical part of making things better for yourself. It's a scary thought to even mention that you're a self harmer to anyone you know because of how much flack we all get. What most people don't realize is that it's a form of coping (though not a positive one), just like running is or listening to music, playing an instrument, writing, playing sports, drinking (another not so great coping skill), and the like are coping skills for other people all across the world. That's why, in my opinion, awareness should be raised about self harm and what exactly it is so that people can begin to understand. you have a safe place here to talk and though you may have trouble trusting people, you have my word that you can both trust and depend on me. I may be new to VT, but I am definitely NOT new to self harm. If you're really serious about quitting (if you haven't already or aren't already in the process of) try visiting WebMD.com, creating a profile, and joining the self harm exchange. There are people who are formers, who are currents, and one professional to offer a safe place to talk at all times via discussions. It's kinda like VT only you have a professional to ask for professional advice if you really want it.

I hope some of this helps...
Aeriel

I went to the doctors about it, and they're suprisingly helpful. They've set me up with a place that deals with young people with mental health problems and my counselling starts in October.
