    Better safe than sorry... I’d call him an ambulance.

    We shouldn't really give out medical advice here, but I suggest ringing 999 and asking for medical support.
    Hope you are ok and your friend is ok too

    TW: Self-harm

    sorry guys, i wasn't really fine when i wrote this, to be truly honest it was me that self harmed, i was hearing voices and very upset with myself... it was the first time i did so much, so i was scared and very ashamed to ask for help. but my parents saw me and helped me and im cool now.. my grandmother helped me with the injury, so i didn't needed to go to hospital... im really sorry :((

    Hey there @joya I've edited your comment and put in a spoiler and trigger warning just because it's a little graphic, I hope that's alright with you. <3

    I'm glad to hear you're alright at the moment, taking care of yourself is always the number one priority so hopefully you're able to keep on top of things. Be sure to keep us all up to date with how you're doing we're here to help!

    I think it's understandable that you were feeling ashamed of your actions, it seems like it was a pretty extreme situation and you did well to handle yourself as calmly as you did. Rather than focusing on the negatives right now you might find it helpful to just remember the positives and boost your mood a little if you can. :) You're very brave for talking about what you've been through on here and I hope things start getting better for you soon.
