curious about the ER Mar. 31st, 2013 @ 10:04 PM Reply

So yesterday I spent the night in the ER because of well I sliced my arm up with a box cutter, worse than I had ever done before, and it looked really gross. They just put some antiseptic stuff on it and wrapped it with bandages. I'm curious if cutting yourself can actually lead to an infection, I want to do it again but I'm worried because if I do it I'll do it hard. Will more cuts mean I'm more likely for an infection or what.

I wonder if moar exposure increases the likelihood that foreign bodies may enter the body. Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Well, I thought it was funny to see the facial expression of everyone at the hospital when they saw my arm.
But what if I immediately applied alcohol/peroxide. and rubbed it into the entire wound? Would that guarantee no infections?

Yes.

For the love of all that is good, stop hurting yourself.

Yes. Don't limit yourself to the arms, either; feel free to cut yourself everywhere. As long as you slap some peroxide on that shit you'll be good to go, so knock yourself out.

Okay thx I'll keep that in mind for tomorrow. I'd rather just be efficient with my arms though, my right arm is still clean, seems I tend to just pick on the left one most of the time but I need to break the habit lol.
to all the ppl calling me an AW, I'm not one of those. I simply don't want to obtain an infection.
If I had weed to smoke I'd smoke it instead of cutting, lol.

Really? I didn't realize that cutting makes you forget about your depressing life. Seems like it would just serve as a reminder of it. Hurf durf

Slice an artery.

Really you're being a complete dumbass.

This is life. You're fucking in it like the rest of us. Sometimes it's amazing, sometimes it's shitty. But you cope with it like everyone else.

Quit adding problems on top of problems as a way to avoid facing life. Quit giving yourself handicaps.

Nah, BeakerBoy. That's not the way to do it IMO.
You either continue on with the show or you don't.

I don't see the productivity in doing that, personally.
It's just painful and it doesn't get anything done in the long run (as far as I know).

Have you never heard of gangrene, blood infections caused by scratches or cuts, and impetigo?

My mom worked at the ER, she said one time there was a girl there who had her dog stuck on her ass from screwing it.
And that's when my mom quit working there.

If you cut yourself people will automatically think you are an emo or are suicidal.

That girl prolly couldve saved herself some embarrassment by just waiting for his penis to deflate lmfao.
